B. The N-word at Work Is Qualitatively Different than Its Use Elsewhere Because of the Unique Importance of the Workplace.

Because many Americans spend as much as one-third-or more - of their adult lives in the workplace and rely on their jobs for financial security and economic mobility, their workplace experiences can have an especially profound impact on their lives. Heather McLaughlin et al, The Economic and Career Effects of Sexual Harassment on Working Women, 31 Gender Society 333 (2017). Research shows that the N-word's toxicity is amplified in the workplace due to the sheer amount of time employees spend there each day. See, e.g., James W. Collins et al., Very Low Birthweight in African American Infants: The Role of Maternal Exposure to Interpersonal Racial Discrimination, 94 Am. J. Pub. Health 2132, 2135 (2004) (studying the mental and physical health effects of racism and finding that “lifetime exposure to racial discrimination” was “strongest” in the “place of employment”).
