Hmm well like I said I've never really witnessed it so bad. So maybe I'm not so sensitive just not used to it.. She did tell me I live in a fairy tale world today..

Why didn't the black people just ignore those guys? They look like they are down on their luck. Basically powerless. Short of threatening to shoot me, I would not dignify their racism with attention.

RE: I might work with racists...
That's the problem with racism-- it makes no sense.

What did the dude being black have to do with anything?

Nearly every anecdote I see says that the most annoying customers, almost across the board, are middle-aged, middle/upper-class white women with short haircuts who feel entitled to special treatment, and get belligerent when denied that special consideration... or the "I demand to speak to a manager!" crowd, as they're called.

Really??
There are no cameras in the office at all. No way to prove she said it. They both laughed.. She texted another manager telling them her little joke. I'm sitting in my seat completely faced away with this horrible feeling in my stomach. My whole body had chills.. The fact that they could joke about it.
There's nothing I can do about it.. I don't think anyway without losing my job. But I believe I'm going to start looking for another place to work,

Might?!?!?!? Ohmy

Wrong Answer: "Oh my god! You're right! In *my* world you aren't a cowardly bigot!"

Satisfying but pretty much guaranteed to get you fired.

Aside from demonstrating a complete lack of spine, the racial sensitivities of a 17th century plantation owner, and a workplace ethic that would make Joseph Goebbles proud that comment wasn't even funny. If you're going to compromise everything else you should at least have a decent punchline.

Is it a large enough workplace to have an HR department?
