Soon after, a new supervisor, Gina, was hired to manage the shipping department. One day Andrew heard Gina use a racial slur. Then Andrew started noticing that Gina would eat only with people of her own race and gender. He heard her make another racist remark. He ignored her, but he shared his concerns with coworkers questioning whether a racist should be managing other people. Andrew discussed Gina’s behavior with his supervisor but she did not see enough evidence of racism to do anything about it.
