My problem is that the male is tended to be automatically believed as guilty. One little allegation from a female and the male is doomed, regardless if the accuser meets the burden of proof.
Here's another tale from my past when I managed a software store long ago
next door was a radio shack, one of the assistant managers was a black woman. Now for me, that is no big deal I do not and never intend to judge based on ethnicity. I DO judge based on one's behavior though.
She had a tendency to come into my store at times and demand to know why she never sees any black people or females working there. My responses were this:
1. Mind your business and run your own store.
2. Try opening your eyes and shutting your lousy mouth and get a better attitude or never walk in here again.
3. You are wearing your uniform and badge from your store, thus you are representing the company you work for. Leave now, please.
And for those that haven't figured it out, I am Caucasian.
So, one day I open the store and my assistant manager tells me that the other night after my crew had closed and locked up that this person pounded on the door and demanded they reopen to service a couple that needed to make an exchange. It was my night off so I wasn't there to stop it.
My assistant and crew reopened which was:
1. A breach of company security policy
2. Caving in to an idiot that had no business doing what she did.
I verified this with the other staff that worked that night then alerted by district manager and then went over to the Radio Shack to speak to my counter part over there and reported the whole thing. I made it clear that whether she stays employed by Radio Shack is up to Radio Shack but she needs to be transferred to another store and to never set foot in my store again, etc.
She tried to fight it and yes she cried racial foul/played the race card but the evidence was way against her and she was dealt with.
My assistant and staff were left to me to deal with.....
