How Many Swastikas Sprayed On The Locker Of An Auschwitz Survivor Constitutes Hostile Work Environment
“If you were a (rare) survivor of the Auschwitz death camp, would one swastika spray painted in your workplace be enough to create a hostile environment for you? Or one “Hitler” scrawled on your work locker?
No? How about two?
OK — how many, then?
These may be hypotheticals, but the underlying issue is all too real for people of color. It seems that racial harassment cases always have the same racial slurs and tropes: either the N-word, a noose, or both. Always. Although KKK hoods are becoming popular these days.
So how many N-words or nooses make up a “serious” case of racial harassment? How many KKK hoods?”
This is the theme of my new article in Above The Law.
