Atlanta server instantly quits after he’s confronted for overcharging Black men — but not white men

Published

on

A pair of white men called out an Atlanta restaurant server after the employee overcharged some Black men they’d befriended while eating out.

Shane Smith and a friend were seated near three Black men at La Hacienda, and the two groups got to talking while enjoying their food and drinks — and he intervened after the Black men complained about possibly unfair treatment, reported WGCL-TV.

“One of the guys calls out, holding the bill, and says, ‘Hey, did you add auto gratuity to this?'” Smith said. “He’s asking the server, and the server goes, ‘Yeah, yeah, we add that to everybody’s bill.”

The server had added 20 percent gratuity to their bill and refused to remove it, but Smith noticed that hadn’t been added when the server dropped off his bill a few moments later.

“So I looked at the server and said, ‘Do you guys add auto gratuity to everyone’s bill?’ and he goes, ‘No, we don’t,’ he winks at me and says, ‘No, not everybody’s bill, just some people. Then he nods over to the Black people.”

“It was just so blatant,” he added.

The restaurant owner said the server immediately quit when he was confronted over the apparent racial double standard, and promised to make amends if the Black men return.

“Definitely a gift card and an apology,” said owner Gabe Magana, “and I know that’s the least I can do for what happened.”

‘Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president’: Ambassador McFaul

Published

McFaul retweeted a clip of the leader of the free world failing to pronounce the word, "totalitarianism."

"Trump has no idea what words like fascism and totalitarianism mean," McFaul, now a professor at Stanford, declared.

"To those who wrote this speech and those senior [White House] officials who approved this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president and on the July 4th weekend no less," he explained.
