Caregiving while Black

I work for a health care provider company.  I normally have a set schedule with many different clients, but they are consistent. Recently I got a new client who I went and did the home visit for, but by the following care day, I got a call from the agency saying my client has been moved off my roster.  I asked why was my client moved from my list, and they couldn’t give a reason except to say it didn’t work.

I work for a health care agency, and attend home visits daily.  Some clients verbally tell me that I cannot touch them with my Black skin. They refuse care, and make nasty comments. If I tell my employer I would just lose my job.
