No one can explain WHY THEY WENT TO THE MEDIA. The waiter was fired on the spot (as he should have been). All they are doing is hurting the restaurant owner who did the right thing. What do they hope to gain from their 15 minutes of fame?

If you think that's upset, then you must be really appalled that those Black restaurant goers going on and on about the word that's only racist when Blacks don't use it.

But of course we know this isn't the case though I won't directly use the H-word. LOL

A valid complaint. Blacks are notoriously bad tippers, and black women worst of all.


Anyway I sure am tired of all these bogus 'racist receipt' stories. I'll bet the women are looking for a payout of some sort, either from the restaurant itself or more likely the gullible public who love to rain money on victims of perceived injustices.

I've given 100%, even 200% tips on occasions where the service was above and beyond the call of duty. Usually only happens at like Olive Garden or something.

If I eat out at Christmas they're getting a larger tip.
If they're cute they're getting a larger tip.
If they flirt they're getting a larger tip.

In fact the largest tip I ever left was $100 - on a $15 meal - simply because I felt like it and I had too much cash in my pocket at the time. That was back in my 20's when I didn't have any sense of fiscal responsibility, mind, but still.


Of course, you have nothing to back up your generalized statement. Google searches, however, will yield plenty of instances where rich people of all races are stiffing restaurant workers. But yeah...

I don't understand what this means the way it's written. What is a 2nd set of six checks? What happened to the first six checks the Black customers were given?

Likewise, personal anecdotal posts can't be verified or proven so they are even less relevant to the discussion.

It appears they did not tell the waiter at the beginning of the meal that they wanted separate checks so it all went on one check. After the fact, they requested 6 separate checks. Capish?

Also, your experience is far from mine. We even had Blacks when seated say things like "Look, I know how to tip." before ever placing their order. THAT'S how bad it is in many places. NYC may well be different. In fact, most "melting pot" cities I go to are. I'm moving to one for that reason. From what I have seen, you can truly be "color blind" in a true melting pot city, and not come out bad for it. I like that.

Anyway, if you want to know more about what typically happens, go to YouTube and search "Blacks don't tip". For the results I got, hats off to the many Blacks who are upset by this situation and want to encourage it to be fixed. I am trying the same thing in healthcare with deliveries. Healthcare workers make horribly ****ty restaurant guests and tippers, also, for whatever reason. I noticed that, as well. YOU DO NOT WANT! a table full of nurses. Tips will suck, food requests will be stupid, attitudes of "superiority" will abound. Pretty disgusting. Part of why I won't eat with most co-workers. I want my food. AND JUST! my food. On that plate, lol!

Here is one of the first videos I found that explains this exactly:
(I'd rate this video clip PG13 for brief adult language---I am not accredited to rate videos)

People of all races can and will stiff you on a tip. Period. I guess my experience is different based on my location, so I guess I can't even picture this happening. In Texas, things are clearly different. Based on the comments of the YouTube video you sent, there were mixed feelings- some agreed that they don't tip, while others disagreed and said they tipped according to service.

I remember years ago I used to be embarrassed to go out with one of my friends because he was such a horrible tipper. I would also try to pay a little extra to make up for him because I know how hard servers work, especially for parties 6+ (which is why most restaurants have the strict police for 20% gratuity automatically included for larger parties, no splitting allowed).

The waiter is Arab/Lebanese if I presume. We have a good dose of them in Australia and their youths are obsessed with the N word. They also think that they're black, and are usually listening to hip-hop music.

I don't think waiter meant it in a malicious way.
