So I just wanna share a situation that occured at work, and see what everyone thinks and what should I do? It's downtime, I return to my unload from another unload having finished helping out, my soup tells me to bring down a bunch of bulk, so I begin to do what Im told. Another worker is proceeding toward me this individual is a black male, he basically is just walking through and asks if I need help as I was moving a huge piece of bulk, I reply simply in a normal tone "Na its ok, I got it" which I did and I proped the bulk upright as I was trying to do. So he just proceeds on, I think nothing of it, then my soup comes up behind me and asks me why I didn't say yea to the help the guy offered. I was confused, and after him asking me three times and I'm not quiet understanding what hes saying, he says "do you not like black people?", I reply to him shocked "what? are you serious?" *my soup is hispanic* I asked him 2 more times "are you serious? or is this a joke?" he next says " if you don't like black people you can tell me" I continue with "I got seriously no problem with black people" he finally says "You know were just trying to promote a diverse working enviornment, I'm just asking" the conversation ends, he walks off. Next I was pretty damn insulted, and , I didn't understand the reasoning or need for such dialogue, I wasnt nasty to the black guy, didn't talk in anyway or give off an appearance that something was wrong when talking to the black guy, and the black guy didn't say anything bad in return to me or make a face or anything. I just find such a thing to be insulting, because i seriously get along with alot of the black guys, long conversations, good humor, good rapport, what the heck could of that been about? A few days ago, our soup was walking by me and I jokingly asked him how many trailers he unloaded, he was confused and ask why and I just walked away laughing. Pretty much I was messing with him, he messes with me jokingly in the same manner, Is such a relationship with a soup something that we should just avoid as it can complicate things? because it seems like Im getting the impression that some boundaries cant be blurred or crossed.
