Black family kicked out of the fake Buffalo Wild Wings on some ol' BS
Admittedly, I can't digest chicken wings as well when white people are in my presence, because they make me nervous, and if there was a way that I could have groups of people denied public accommodations based on my own personal whim, I would take advantage of it.
Should Indian people be forced to leave the grocery store here in the shanty town temporarily while I decide which beer is cheapest on a per ounce basis? I think there's a case to be made.
No but really, here's a story of about a black "family" of 25 people or so who were forced to leave a restaurant because a white patron felt threatened by their presence. They sat there and waited for a table for two hours before they were shown the door.
(See video below)
The head of the family, the most articulate brother with the best beard and the best accessories, took to Facebook to explain how the fake Buffalo Wild Wings is racist and black people should never eat there ever again, or something to that effect. A white chick who probably gets paid $80,000 a year to play on Facebook all day (or does she also have to flip through applications to weed out black-sounding names?) issued an apology and offered a free meal to the entire family, not just the guy whose Facebook it was, which probably could have put the fake Buffalo Wild Wings out of business, what with the price of chicken wings these days.
If the paterfamilias had been thinking, he would have taken the fake Buffalo Wild Wings up on their offer and ordered his people to eat as many lemon pepper wings and weird fruit-flavored martinis as they possibly could. There's a solid core of about five of them who look like they could do some serious damage, and I've been to enough Thanksgivings down in the part of St. Louis that looks like the part where the Griswolds got their hubcaps stolen in National Lampoon's Vacation to know that the rest of those hoodrats should at least be able to hold their own, if not go full-on Kobayashi.
It's only right that they should be able to get as much free food as they can possibly eat, because they didn't enjoy their experience, and restaurant meals should be governed by the same rule as Joe Pesci's investment portfolio in the movie Casino, right Bomb?
Ironically, this is the rare case where a customer -- or group of customers, in this case -- arguably has a legitimate claim to money from the register. In so many of these World Star videos, you see a hoodrat who didn't enjoy her Chicken McNuggets with two sauce packets and Sprite, or they didn't give her the right shit, or they took too long, and so she feels entitled to not just the thing that she paid for, but some extra shit in addition to that, or some money from the register as a sort of People's Court settlement for their loss of time and any emotional injury suffered. Not only do people try this on the reg, they think it's the actual law, which is how you get these evening news segments about people who were arrested for calling 911 to complain about a fast food restaurant getting their order wrong.
There is, in fact, a law governing dissatisfaction with restaurant meals, and it's this: A restaurant doesn't owe you anything other than the shit that you paid for. They can't just take your five dollars and not give you a ten-piece McNugget and two sauce packets, but if they give you your McNuggets and you (somehow) don't like them that's on you. Stores and restaurants reserve the right to offer a refund. You, as a customer, reserve the right to not eat at a restaurant, if it doesn't have good McNuggets. You can take to social media to throw a bitchfit about it, if you want to, but you're not protected by law from having a bad meal. That's the risk you take not living in a home like Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.
What a restaurant can't do is decide it doesn't want to accommodate certain groups of people because of their race. You guys know I'm pre-med, but I'm pretty sure there's laws against that, even in South Carolina. It'd be one thing if it was a private golf course or something, and they didn't want any blacks eating there, or you had to be "sponsored" by a CAC to make you don't put your feet on the table or try to steal the silverware, but a restaurant serving the general public doesn't have any choice in the matter. If the CAC family didn't feel comfortable with them waiting there for a table, the restaurant should have shown their cracka asses the door. Maybe that would have cleared up enough space and they could have finally sat down. While I'm sure there was more to this conflict than Pimp Paterfamilias will admit to on the evening news, and I'm sure that's why he was chosen as spokesperson, I think he's got a pretty strong case for discrimination. He might be about to get that settlement $$$, in which case he can buy as many chicken wings as he wants, for about five years. #strategy
