Racism

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about racist remarks by a coworker: Should I take it up with my immediate supervisor in private? Should I go ahead & send that letter to our VP? I’ve been nice & let it go, but it’s time to get her terminated.

I have a co-worker who sits right beside me in my office. I’ve heard her make racist remarks when she gets angry. She has made comments about sending Asians back on a ship, sending immigrants back to their home country since they know no English, & calling an Asian friend of mine a racial slur. I’ve been nice & let it go, but it’s time to get her terminated. I have a letter set up to send to our VP of Human Resources. She’s a nice person when she’s in a calm mood, but when her mood changes some of the stuff that comes out of her mouth can be offensive. Should I take it up with my immediate supervisor in private? Should I go ahead & send that letter to our VP? It’s a shame because I do get along with her, but…………it’s time for her to go. There’s no place for that stuff!
