I work in a warehouse where we have all different races. I am white and we are the minority at our job but that doesn't bother me at all. I enjoy all cultures and I'm a people person, I love to visit with all races. But, now too much has happened at this job and there is two black men causing alot of problems for many of us. These men hang out together and stir up problems with those they target. They scream PREDJUDICE! if anyone complains. Some women have quit because the two men have frightened them with threats.
They get away with so much it's unreal but only 2 written complaints on one of these guys and he happens to be my immediate supervisor, they need one more. The other man, his buddy.... slits tires if you don't do what they tell you to and submit to their demands. My supervisor is about 6'6" tall and muscular and the other one shorter, but huge arm muscles.
Both have sexually harassed me and made terrible comments on others, including their own race.
They do this to women like me that do not have a man at home, women struggling to make ends meet.
I have been told that I need slapped around a little bit and other horrible things but I don't know what to do about all this. My supervisor told a small group of us that he has all of our addresses and social security numbers, it was a direct threat because on that day, we were all about ready to go in as a group and complain. Ok, THAT I DID report to human resources, along with another lady.
We refused to do it in writing though so he was only talked to. I noticed a beautiful tattoo of a full length panther on my supervisors arm. I told him it was a nice tattoo, he acted weirded out. WEll, later someone told me he is a black panther. I didn't know alot about them to tell you the truth, I wasn't very good in History, white black or any of it,lol. I asked my supervisor if he was a black panther and he freaked out and started stammering and stuttering and blurted out he is a South Carolina Panther fan. He told me his favorite player is Steve Smith but gave me the wrong number for him. Also it's the Carolina Panthers, not South Carolina Panthers. I found this all out later, he was basically not wanting me to know about him being a black panther. This man is trying to get rid of ALL whites in ALL management positions at our huge warehouse. I don't know alot about the Black Panthers, just others where I work tell me that is what these men are and I think they are right. My supervisor has a full length panther tattoo, like a stalking one. The Carolina Panthers logo is only the head of the Panther. I have searched the internet for information on the Black Panther party and I'm learning.
Both of these men do that raised fist motion to each other, too. Not sure if that is exclusively for a Blank Panther party, but I just see them doing it at work.
Well, if the others are right and if these men are Black Panthers like I am hearing from others, then I'm not getting a very good impression. Now I have to worry about my children,comments about my oldest son were made.
Right now, I need my job and the insurance so I really don't know what to do. Tonight I did some searches and ended up here. I feel a little small right now as you can imagine, so I guess it is hard for me to see the good.
Is this typical behavior of a Blank Panther or are there those of you that would be disgusted with what they are doing to us? For now, my upper management is watching all of this and aware and they say it has been reported before and they are working on it. My supervisor has been there a few years though, and upper management said they need solid proof to fire him.
Not impressed so far, hope there are better ones out there. What I have experienced leads me to first hand experience with these two individuals. I am told they are from the Black Panther party so my own personal experience is the only real life description I have. These two make the others of you out there as Black Panthers, look really bad. Thanks for taking your time in reading this, I feel a little better just to write it down.
I hope there are better Black Panthers than these two examples?
