Dealing with racism from co-workers as well as the general public. I would like to speak on the racism and discrimination I experienced on the job. Sometimes competitive rivalries between co-workers may not have racial undertones. These rivalries sometimes can healthy and beneficial. Anyone who has experienced true racism can discern the difference.
Sometimes I experienced racism. From co-workers as well as the civilians that I had vowed to protect and serve. Discrimination from civilians can be quite trying at times, however racism from co-workers I think has the most negative impact.
I will focus on one incident where I engaged with a true racist civilian. The outcome was life altering due greatly in part to my diligence and commitment. I’m open for questions.
