Judge Amy Coney Barrett Ruled The N-Word Does Not Make Workplace ‘Hostile’

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett ruled in 2019 that there was no evidence the use of the N-word “created a hostile or abusive working environment.”

The Associated Press reports that Barrett has written about 100 opinions in more than three years on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which Trump appointed her to in 2017, including the workplace ruling:

“The n-word is an egregious racial epithet,” Barrett wrote in Smith v. Illinois Department of Transportation. “That said, Smith can’t win simply by proving that the word was uttered. He must also demonstrate that Colbert’s use of this word altered the conditions of his employment and created a hostile or abusive working environment.”
