I have a co-worker at my workplace ( she is white) who always takes it upon herself to slip out racist comments, more specifically towards black people. She has also said some islamaphobic things to me in the past. Her comments make me feel uncomfortable. I was wondering if you would recommend I report her to the managers? Would I be causing more of a bigger issue or is it required of me to report such actions? Islamicaly, what would be the right decision?

1) I recommend having an effective conversation with her. Try to change her perspective. Remind her that God created all people so is it ok to mock God’s creation? When one is racist, he is effectively mocking God’s creation. If she doesn’t believe in God, tell her that all forms of life are evolutionary equal, so why be racist? We all “evolved” from the same source according to their beliefs.

2) If nothing works then yes report her.
