Drives me nuts when people (bosses or HR) just write people up without investigating first and getting to the bottom of a situation. Just because someone has said something about another doesn't mean it's automatically true.

In some cases, there's a mandatory write up if there's a complaint. It really depends on the company. Not saying it's fair, just that it's a thing.

In that case he should complain that his coworker is harassing him over a picture given to him by his grandfather. Write ups for everyone lol.

Not all of us. Unfortunately, the ones who ARE tend to be the loudest about it and drown out all of us more reasonable human beings.

Here's the thing, though: It _is_ important to address actual problems where they exist. One person's overreaction doesn't mean nobody should make appropriate reactions, or that everyone who reacts appropriately should be painted with the same brush as the overreactors.

60, unfortunately, the majority of stuff SJWs harp on about are non-issues. Cultural appropriation? I always thought that cultures building off each other was a good thing. Speech codes on campus? I always thought people should be allowed to have and express any beliefs they want, because universities should be encouraging debate, not silencing people. Sexist air conditioning (yes, this was a real thing)? I shouldn't even have to explain how stupid this is. That's not even to mention the fac

I doubt that it will make a difference. The co-worker has a preconceived notion of what Native Americans are like, and very little is going to change their mind.

What happened to just confronting people.. immediately going to HR wasn't even warranted if it had been a caricature

A normal workplace would ask to see the photo before writing you up. Might be time to find a professional company.
