    I would asume the last straw came after that 2 hour mark.

    If you watch the video at the link, the speaker for the group did not say the representative for the resturant said it was a White person, just another patron. I am guessing the speaker for the group added the white part.

    What gets me is that any time you have a large group, reservations need to be made. I wonder what types of comments were made as people waiting for tables for two were moving past them. I'm sure at least a few of the 25 had to be getting pretty steamed.
    That was posted earlier in the thread.

    Some in the group were upset whitey was getting seated and they were not.

    It probably took two hours to work up the nerve to tell their inconsiderate asses that their party of TWENTY-FIVE wasn't going to be accomidated, because--gasp!--someone would start screaming racism.

    The fact that Management was contacted several times over a period of weeks, and only made a move to "rectify" the situation after it hit social media leads me to believe they didn't think kicking a group of black people out "because they can" was a big deal. 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 kicked 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.
    Did you read what one the waitresses said about that night?

    If you had you would not have posted this.

    If you had read this thread and the adjoining links you will have seen the group was asked to leave when they started filming the encounter. Why would you think that was racist?

    Jesus, Mary and Freakn Joseph..... A person can't even say that it is possible in this situation without a bunch of ***** jumping on THEM, This behavior only fuels the stereotypes about conservatives. I did not say that. I said, it is possible but until we have more information we really don't know.

    There were plenty of seats out back of the restaurant by the kitchen... what were they complaining about?

    Alright, let's put that to the test. Did racism occur in this experiment?
