Racial Slurs Need to be Stopped

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

Some of my coworkers tell rude jokes. Many jokes make fun of other races. We all laugh, but only to be polite. Lately, I've been feeling like I should say something to stop this type humor. Am I being too sensitive? I can't leave and work elsewhere as we all have small cubicles together. I have left to get coffee or say that I have to make copies, but when I return, they tell me the jokes that I've missed.



Dear Humorless,

Silence only condones racist remarks. Although your coworkers are telling "jokes," it's really disguised racism. I would certainly speak up and say that you feel the jokes are racist and demeaning and would rather not hear any. Who knows, it may even enlighten your joke-telling coworkers.
