    I'm not one to play the race card but I just noticed it yesterday. We had training and when my white colleagues came in she was very bubbly and friendly with them. She hardly made eye contact with me and I was last to do everything. When paperwork was handed over I was next to her but she'd stretch over and hand it to one of the other girls. I felt really uncomfortable and I didn't even know that she'd changed our starting dates. She's Oriental and has all white friends. If she was racist she wouldn't have employed me right? I'm currently looking for a new job as I feel really uncomfortable! Advice please

    I don't think you can assume it's racism. Perhaps there was a genuine reason she did what she did or it was just that she knew other people better than you etc. If you're concerned maybe you could have a chat with her, don't accuse her of racism, but say how you feel she's behaved and ask her if there's a reason.
