Denial and Silence to Racism is Consent

Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. 

Verizon denied that my co-worker who made the ‘monkey see, monkey do’ remark about Black football players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial discrimination and police brutality was racially insensitive.

They denied having knowledge of a racial slurs being made against me. And they denied that the work environment was hostile for me. One of my co-worker (white) was the only person who spoke out about the pervasive racism in the office. He was also let go after they terminated me.  These messages are between that co-worker and I between October 25th through November 4th 2017.
