I’m Harrassed By My Boss.

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about reported racist comment:

My boss is verbally abusing me because I reported her for making a racist comment. Please help.

Signed, Harassed

Dear Harassed:

Retaliation is unacceptable, but it might be difficult to prove. Of course not knowing what you reported, I can’t side with you. You boss likely resented being reported, especially if you did not confront her at the moment she made a racist remark and went behind her back to say she is racist. Also she might have reason to resent it if you have behaved as an adversary rather than have been a supportive associate.
