Do you find this to be racist?

"You're really good at cleaning bathrooms, i would pay you to clean mine" but in a joking tone
also telling the person it was a joke

  • There was no reference made to race so it cannot be racist in and of itself. It's the kind of comment that you would make quite normally regardless of race.

      Wow! That's just crazy. I'm sorry that happened to you. Almost everything now is racial or racist even when it doesn't have the slightest thing to do with race. smh

    • 27d

      Yup
      And the thing that makes me so mad, is that my store manager would always make comments about my appearance

  • hahaha people seem to think everything nowadays can be racist.
    -Good morning, mate.
    -THAT'S RACIIIIIIIIST!!!

      Right!' I got fired for saying his to someone

  • No. Are you just looking for something to get indignant and butthurt about? There's nothing in that sentence that even remotely could be taken as any of the Victim Ism's unless the listener is butthurt all day, every day, about everything.

      Ah, you lost at Victim Poker. Sorry about your luck.

      Straight white man < straight nonwhite, not black man < straight black man < gay white man < gay nonwhite, not black man < gay black man < white woman < nonwhite, not black woman < black woman < muslim (any)

      Muslim is the trump card in the West. Think of it as a Royal Flush.

      So if you're white and female, you can see that according to your place on the hierarchy, you can get away with anything if the other person is a man, unless he's a muslim, but the minute a black woman decides to take offense to something you say/do, you lose.

      You're probably better off not being at that job anyway.

      At your next job, do like men have to do, and don't interact with anyone higher in the hierarchy unless you absolutely HAVE to. Yah, it sucks but that's the way it is if you want to keep your job.

      Did you say that to a customer? Lots of people use that word incorrectly now a days. What is meant from saying that can depend of the tone and context of what happened previously. The way I understood it you probably were giving the person a compliment. "I would pay you money to cook me food or pay money for you to paint me a picture like that, etc." We're in the era of hyper PC though. Anyone can be offended by anything potentially.

      No to another worker

  • If you're in the US I would contact the department of labor.

      Saying, "You (insert race of choice here) are good at cleaning bathrooms." That would have been racist. What you said wasn't racist at all. Either your manager just didn't like you, orhe was actually the one that is racist against you.
      Do you ever talk about politics at work? If you do, sometimes people will do underhanded stuff and take the first chance they get to screw over you if they disagree with your opinions on that too.
