Mississippi fast food cashier ‘terminated immediately’ for ugly racist slur on customer’s receipt

Published

The owner of a fast food restaurant in Mississippi “terminated immediately” an employee after a racist and misogynistic slur of patrons.

When Lex Washington visited Who Dat’s Drive-Thru in Oxford with her roommate, the cashier listed them on the receipt as “black b*tches in a silver car.”

A manager reportedly refused to apologize at the time, and instead “laughed in her face.”

A photo of the receipt then spread on social media.

Wylie Coleman, who owns Who Dat’s Drive-Thru, spent 90 minutes speaking with Washington.

Coleman described Washington as “nothing but sweet & communicative” after the meeting.

“We have so much common ground,” Coleman said. “I spoke with her in shock & remorse. Unexplainable to me were the words on the receipts.”

“The first step was taken by myself to the employee who was informed that they were terminated immediately. Ms. Washington and I decided this was necessary because the food service could be jeopardized and that is the only way to start moving forward with what transpired,” he noted.

“From the bottom of my heart I would like to apologize to the young ladies that were attacked by this injustice,” Coleman said. “I am not only apologizing to her but to everyone & anyone that could subject to a label in life.”

“I have taken the trash out on this instant that I am in control in, but I would like to inform everyone that I will not condone this anywhere,” he added.

Coleman told the New York Daily News, he wanted to “reiterate the employee was terminated immediately.”

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) had a little tantrum in the House Judiciary Committee Thursday when Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) tried to add documents to the official congressional record. Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has added, with unanimously consent, whatever both sides sought to enter into the record.

According to CNN's Manu Raju, Swalwell then walked across the dais to Collins and handed the articles to him. One was a Los Angeles Times piece that detailed how Ukrainian soldiers died while battling Russia while they waited on the aid from the United States.

Letting the President Get Away with Contempt of Congress Will Make the Legislative Branch as Irrelevant as the Roman Senate

The two articles of impeachment, which have drawn criticism as either too much or too little, strike me as cleverly drafted to put Senate Republicans in a most uncomfortable box.

The second article, obstruction of Congress, should be the tougher one for Senate Republicans. It flows from Donald Trump’s stonewalling the impeachment inquiry – no testimony, no documents.

On top of this utter contempt of Congress, Trump claims absolute immunity from investigation by anyone for anything. His lawyers asserted in federal court in October that the NYPD could not investigate even if Trump literally shot someone on Fifth Avenue.

Republicans expect impeachment to cost the GOP seats in 2020: ‘Cult members can’t see past the Kool-Aid’

As the GOP strategy for the impeachment of President Donald Trump seems to be a combination of shouting and stubbornly denying facts, even some Republicans are worried that ignoring reality could have historic implications.

In 1974, Republicans suffered an epic defeat following the impeachment inquiry that resulted in the resignation of GOP President Richard Nixon.

"Nearly a half-century ago, [GOP House Judiciary Committee members] who protected then-President Richard Nixon suffered a hefty price for it just months later in the 1974 midterm elections: Five of the 10 members who voted against all three articles of impeachment saw their seats flip to Democrats. Four were defeated outright. The fifth retired, and the Republican hoping to succeed him lost," HuffPost reported Thursday. "In contrast, House Republicans as a whole lost only 25% of their seats that November ? still a staggering loss rate, but only half of that suffered by members of the Judiciary Committee."
