This hillarious to anyone else?
1.) I hope Chris is embarassed by this
2.) It's the fucking South.
3.) It's fucking Cracker Barrel in the South.
4.) Did I mention it's the South?
5.) They don't have to say anything to you. I didn't have that happen to me. She also neglects to mention if others came in after her and were seated before her, etc.
These charges have been going on here in the South for over 12 years that I know of.:tdown2:
EDIT: It's BS. The "target" seems to be Cracker Barrel.
black folks going to "cracker" barrel..............
i remember the time i went into west oakland to flint's ribs......or eli's mile high club.....same treatment....nobody will wait on you.
I've recieved the same treatment in certain neighborhoods in Georgia, most notably at certain 'hole in the wall' barbeque and fried chicken places. Only with me, it was because I was white. However, I'm above these petty lawsuits. Instead, I merely deny them my business.
anyone remember sambos restaurant?
Did that become "Big Boys" or was it the same company?
no clue ..... found a clue http://www.tommcmahon.net/2004/08/the_first_and_l.html
I see this issue in a different light. Blacks in this country have an entitlement mentality. If they don't get what they want, when they want it, they assume the reason is because they are black. Nevermind the fact that other people don't always get what they want, when they want either regardless of skin color.
Now the Cracker Barrels around here have AT LEAST 1 hour waiting time to be seated. In that time many restaurants try to seat whoever they can wherever they can. So if some people get in sooner because there are only 2 people compared to 6 or 7 for a small table, then thats what a restaurant does. Now instead of considering that the restaurant is busy and they are trying to accomadate as many people as possible, Mrs. Rock assumed it was because she was black as im sure the other plantiffs felt as well.
This entitlement mentality is the problem and its only been made worse by lawyers accepting every petty lawsuit that comes their way.
I think it is/was but really I wouldn't swear to it..late 60s...
EDIT: Nope not the same I guess. I missed the link.
