Can I give a personal story real quick?

I work at a car dealership as a lowly wrench jockey. One of the other guys just got his master certification. I gave him the obligatory congratulations (I actually was happy for him, at first.)

Then he and another guy started making "massa" jokes at me, and me only. "Haha you have to call him massa now"

Would they have even THOUGHT to say that if I was white? I don't fucking think so. They stopped making the jokes, but I'm still forced to be around these dickheads for 8 hours a day. I seriously contemplated switching jobs.

I don't know how I deal with it. People tell you that you don't have to, but you do in reality. I live in southeast Louisiana! If I get a job elsewhere, it will just be more of the same.
