Q: I was told by an employee that they don't like dealing with people like me. Later they said black people. Do you help?
I am sorry you have had to deal with this. Unfortunately, your post does not clearly tell us whether this is an employee of a company you were a customer of, or if this was a co-worker. The answer would be slightly different for each.
If these comments were by a co-worker or supervisor, such a comment should be reported to the HR of your company. Once you report this kind of talk, the employer would have an affirmative legal duty to protect you from it in the future.
If this is an employee of a company you do not work for, perhaps the best way to deal with it is to report this conduct to a manager or even higher to corporate HR.
Good luck to you.

This is an educational forum. We cannot solicit clients.
If you were a customer, then you should consider filing a complaint with the general manager. You have a legal right to be free of racial discrimination in the purchase of goods and service under the Unruh Act.
If you are an employee of the same company, then you should consider filing a written complaint with human resources. You should speak with an employment attorney to make sure your complaint covers the right issues.
