How does this have 6k upvotes? I’ve had numerous encounters with rude restaurant workers and I’m not black. You even mentioned it was extremely busy at the time, she was probably just pissed because more people were coming into the restaurant. Having worked in food service before, it is possible to lose your good attitude on a stressful night.
The worst of it was in Piedmont, MO, at the Zephyr Cafe. We walked in, sat down, and you could FEEL the racism. Everyone stared at us. With hate in their eyes. It was so bad and real it was impossible to ignore. I was disturbed and I can’t imagine how our black members felt. I’m dumb with you. Until hearing his view, it seemed to me that she was simply rude. When you put in an effort to fix the bias you were raised with, sometimes you don’t realize how many people still hold that bias. You assign causes that make sense to you because you can’t see the pattern he sees.
