Under normal Ohio law, one person cannot threaten to harm another or place another person in fear of imminent harm. This applies both in and out of the workplace, and does not depend on the ethnicity of the person making the threats.

It is not clear what is happening in your workplace, but if you are a witness to a lot of violence in the workplace, you should probably consult an employment lawyer about protecting yourself.
