So do you always need to know the nationality of the people involved when someone posts that they're having issues with someone at work?

How does knowing their nationalities alter the advice you'd give?

Would you change your advice if you found out the harasser was Polish an Australian or from South Africa?
Some times it's just a way to describe people, not meant in an offensive way at all. I spent ages the other day trying to tell someone who was still in the building I had just finished cleaning - if I had just said the black lady everyone would have known who she was, but there I was trying to describe heigh,t weight, clothing, where she usually works, chair she sits in anything but say the one thing that would have identified her quickly.

If I am at work I am often described as white lady or only non pakistani. Does that upset me ? No.
