Australian guy got stood down from his job after uttering the N-word to his workmate at a dinner.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The N-word refers to Africans.  The derogatory word for Aboriginals in Australia is “b**ng”, an old tribal reference.  So he was not deliberately being derogatory to the Aboriginal girl below.  He was not referencing her at all

A public servant and ex-policeman who was suspended on full pay after saying ‘my white n***er’ to an Indigenous colleague has tried to argue the term is ‘just a word’ that his daughter and her friends often use as a greeting.

Bryce Waite, 61, was stood down as a compliance officer for the Queensland  government’s Department of Environment and Science over comments he made during a work dinner at the Oxford Hotel in Rockhampton on February 22, 2023.

Mr Waite had been debating the racist slur with another colleague when a young, Indigenous female co-worker joined the conversation and became upset after she heard him say the offensive phrase.

When challenged on the matter, he said: ‘What, it’s just a word, n***er.’

Mr Waite tried to fight the suspension in an appeal to the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission, but it failed last week. He has now been asked to show cause why he shouldn’t lose his job.

He is not allowed to comment until the matter is finalised, but his partner Sharon told Daily Mail Australia the father-of-two thinks the situation is unfair.

She said he also regrets the interaction and now knows he should not use the term at all.
