Zenarra James, a former worker at Red Robin restaurant in Madison Heights, alleges in a lawsuit that co-workers put a razor blade in her take-home salad after she repeatedly complained to management about them using the n-word, Fox 2 reports.

Like 'Yeah, n-word, yeah n-word,' singing songs like really loud, you know what I mean. Personal things, it's whatever," she tells Fox 2.  "But I can hear you, we're in a business, a place of work, we shouldn't be saying things like that at all."

She said management failed to discipline the young white male employees after she complained. A few weeks ago, after she says she found the razor blade in her salad, she informed the general manager, quit and reported the incident to police.

Her Oakland County Circuit Court case, filed Thursday, claims racial discrimination and a hostile work environment.
