We have this new worker working on cash. She is African American.
WE all decided to buy her a gift to make her feel at home. Most people bought chocolate, and perfume, but I bought her a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken and powdered orange tang. I thought it would be a good joke and my friends encouraged me to do so. She reported me and this was taken as a race issue.
I was written up and none of my coworkers who came up with the idea got into trouble. They did not even state it was their idea.
