I agree with the guy being interviewed. It clearly WAS a big deal, and they don't want free food. They want the policy that if a white person feels "threatened", black people can be kicw about ked out "because they can" changed.

    I don't blame him one damned bit. Anyone who looks for excuses to call this something other than what it was... blatant racism condoned by management... should frankly be ashamed of themselves.
    i don't know about that
    white man with his family
    doesn't appreciate a group of people throwing the word 'nigger' around while his kids are present
    i can understand why he would object to such a group being seated around him


    failing to communicate with the disgruntled patrons for the better part of a month. that was slack. then their press agent releases a missive talking about ' loving' their diners. worse than slack: dishonest
    but moose muhammad is a retired NFL player. a black man. and a principal of the ownership group. really think this company tolerates racist practices by its staff?

    PS discussing racism, if it actually occurred, and what it is, isn't the same as declaring something racism. And if you would bother reading the thread you would notice that I am one of the people pointing to a lack of evidence for racism, or racial motivations

    *face palm* As I just outlined in my previous post, I am arguing that there is no evidence of racism.

    And yes, this is a discussion on racism: mainly if such occurred in the cited incident

    No, he doesn't. If you read carefully, he's been questioning why others are foolish to jump to that conclusion.

    Does the state you live in have a US Senator who is black? Remember now, South Carolina does and it's "the state that started the Civil War".

    Still, not a reservation. Were they suppose to kick the other group using what was probably a banquette room like setting out when they arrived?

    Most people with large groups stay more than 2 hours. We often stay as long as 4 hours.
