A manager has a duty to stop discrimination. If he or she allows racial slurs or jokes or harassment of a person of color to continue, that means the manager likely agrees with the racial comments being made.
Examples of racial harassment may include:
- Telling racial jokes
- Making stereotyped comments about race such as referring to African Americans as prone to crime or being really good at sports
- Supporting or ignoring racial comments by coworkers
- Managers or coworkers discovering that a non-white employee is married to or dating a white person, triggering racial bias in one or more coworkers where none was obvious before
