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

Published

on

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.”

According to O'Brien, racism has been a centerpiece of Trump's life going back to when he was just starting out in his family's real estate business.

New Hampshire GOP lawmaker: Owning slaves doesn’t make you a racist

A New Hampshire state lawmaker came under fire this week after he argued that owning black people as slaves does not make someone racist.

USA Today reports that Republican state Rep. Werner Horn recently responded to a Facebook post from a former state House member named Dan Hynes, who argued that President Donald Trump couldn't possibly be the most racist president ever because he never owned slaves.

Trump catapulted a baseless smear about Omar’s marriage from the online fringes into the political mainstream

Published

on

President Donald Trump pushed a baseless smear against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that originated in the online fringes -- as he incited a North Carolina rally crowd to launch a racist chant.

The president told his supporters in Greenville that he'd heard Omar had married her brother, an evidence-free claim that was first posted online in August 2016 as her political career began to take off but has since gained traction in conservative media, reported The Daily Beast.
