Don't Trust Anyone!

When it comes to dealing with abuse at work, remember that you simply can't trust ANYONE! Nobody wants to be dragged into someone's mess at work. Not even drama queens. Self-reliance will be key. You have to be a rock. You have to be your own champion. Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to people's character. Better to be disappointed in someone's shortcomings than to be caught blind because you weren't prepared that you might be left to fend for yourself.

Already there! Currently, my company is retaliating against my discrimination claim by taking away all the little "perks" my department has and pointing the reason for the harshness in my direction. As conditions get harsher, I may have to quit just so they won't suffer anymore.

Meanwhile, documenting everything to file later with the EEOC.

While I'm the only minority in my department, your blog makes me feel I'm not so alone. Bless you for reaching out to others.

Happy Holidays!!

Please check out my EEOC experience with Carolinas Healthcare System at http://phenomenalhair.blogspot.com/2011/11/hair-raising-history-in-healthcare.html

I am still waiting to see how CHS wants to resolve my complaint of unfair employment practices as I am still an employee.

Okay, I'm white my husband is black. New manager made horrible racists remarks to me and continually made complaints about me. Finally, I told the director why he had a problem with me, my husband is black. Three days later they changed the locks on the doors and put me on admin. leave. When I was called to come in, they said they outsourced my job. I thought I knew how racism worked because we dealt with mixed couple problems. I had no idea what it felt like to deal with this kind of racism. I'm a little ashamed that I thought I understood.

My sympathies to you on what you're facing. How long ago did this happen? Have you spoken with the EEOC yet?

I've been thinking of making a website just for people who experience this sort of thing. Companies today are piling on the "thou shalt not"s, preventing others who may be in similar straits from accessing eachother. I want a place where one can go to look up any company and see what they're trying to pull on their employees individually. Sort of an "online union" without dues... but with plenty of 'been there' advice.

Let me know if you need help.

Because of the small number of employees EEOC can't get involved. I was able to report to my state Commission on Human Rights because employer receives state and federal funding. This happened Oct. 2011. They say it will take approx. 6 months to complete investigation. I can't afford an attorney by my ex employer sure can. I put my trust in God. Only He knows how this will end.

I think a website for this is a wonderful idea. It has been difficult not haveing anyone to talk to about this.

Greetings Ms. Willis,

My name is Gus Lawrence, and I host a talk radio program exclusively focused on Racism. I make an effort to share constructive information on what Racism is and how it works. Tim Wise, Dr. Peggy McIntosh, Cynthia McKinney and a myriad of other authors and scholars have been guests on our program. One of my investors raved about your work, and we would be thrilled to have you as a guest on the program. Black people world wide struggle with Racism on the job. We would be immensely grateful if you could share a bit of your time and expertise with us. So many of my listeners call in with specific troubles they are having on the job. We need as much help as possible in how to solve problems and increase efficiency in the work place.I know we can learn a great deal from you, Ms. Willis. I'm sure your itinerary remains congested, and I will do all that I can to conform to your schedule. Please, contact me if you are willing to speak with us. I look forward to hearing from you soon, Ms. Willis. Take excellent care.

Kindest,
Gus Lawrence

There is one main reason why the race and other types of discrimination is on an all time high. When the EEOC and other government agencies ALLOW,CONDONE, and CONSPIRE TO COMMIT racism against blacks by never or rarely allowing effective administrative remedies and throwing out 98-99% black cases, that makes the aggressors CONFIDENT THAT they can discriminate and retaliate against us and NOTHING is going to happen except these ineffective agencies will give Blacks a right to sue letter. The EEOC et al, systematically help employers discriminate against blacks and are fronts to undermine cases they were CREATED TO ENFORCE or oppose. The EEOC and Human Relation Commissions should be shut down or investigated. They commit the ultimate hypocritical treason to justice.

I'm glad to have the opportunity to read about people that suffered descrimination @ workplace. I'm a latina that filed an EEO complaint due to national origin descrimination. It was amazing all the support I received from black coworkers. They are like a family to me. In my opinion, when someone has a racist sterotype there's no way to remove it from the brain. That person visualized you as inferior. It is sad that no matter how good I can perform my job, the stereotype about not being capable due to an accent and the color of my skin remains there. After my situation was resolved and I dropped my case I'm still confronting issues with the same people who descriminated against me. There are ways to legally interfere with a performance and no so much to do about it. I feel I have 2 jobs; the one I have been tasked; 2nd job is watching my back, being alert all the time. I can't trust.
