good for her
I mean really. If you're going to be racist with your hiring then just tell them you're not interested. Don't go into the whole why thing. I myself have seen and heard many racism in the restaurant industry. I worked in one place where a busboy who had plenty of experience making drinks wasn't promoted to be bartender when the place was hiring. The managers excuse was that he didn't interact with the costumes enough. Truth is, is that this was a scottish inspired restaurant in the LES of manhattan. They didn't want to have a mexican guy interacting with customers since they wanted a certain image. Pretty much all of the bartenders were tall, Caucasian males even the one they hired. Another place I worked at was a British pub on the UES where the chef only taught white male cooks to make orders to purveyors and manage the kitchen. Majority of the kitchen workers were Mexican and speak or write in English very well so I could understand that. There was a black guy working there. He was American and could speak and write in English fluently, instead teaching him how to make orders, the chef just hires white guys to do the managing job. When he left, he then had a British bloke come work there on a visa and immediately taught him how to make orders ad manage. This is all regardless of experience. Meanwhile the black guy was working there longer.
Why did they have to say those things? Just say thank you and interview the next person. Be smart about it if you want to be racist.
Stupid racists! What small minds. I'd boycott the bakery if I lived in NY. There's always Carlos Bakery and Buddy and family.
Bad attitude, Bad People, will never change The world,, who baked Your Bread Today??
What's the use spending years building capital, getting permits and opening your dream business if the Government tells you who you can and cannot hire? Forced socialism is just as bad as forced isolation to human beings. She should have thanked them for being honest and applied somewhere else.
No, it's not. It's called doing what's right. Being racist is not doing the right thing. Too bad you have to be Forced to do what's right! There are other countries you can live in and be a racist is you're really that stupid and narrow minded.
Yes it was racism, but mostly I'm going with Stupidism. Maybe in Mr and Mrs Saputhanthri's former country it's ok, but if you want to do business in the US...not so much!
I see what you are saying, but it's Never OK to be a racist! Good people have moved way past that. It's just the low lifes and low thinkers who think SKIN color makes all the difference in the world. NO one should be judged by the color of their skin. No where! It's just Ignorant.
This has nothing to do with weather whites are better at selling food. This is just pure racism at work here that's all. In most cases they know that black people do not have the resources or access to lawyers to fight back.So they take a gamble and get away with this all the time. Its not just in the restaurant industry but in every area in American life it the way it is in America. They hate for people of color is still very strong even though we have a black president.That in some ways has made this worst for average black people. This is because the white haters are angry a black man is in the White House so they take this anger out on the weakest of black people who do not have power to fight back they are cowards who hide behind keyboardsinstead of white hoods.
It's too bad they couldn't be fined for stupid, too.
Everyone knows that these american blacks don't wanna work anyway, So what is the big deal.. besides, I hardly doubt that she is "African-American" unless she was born in Africa.. AT best she is probably just an american american that was born a black colour.. I am an American born here so I am native to America. & IT makes no difference where my relatives may have been born either.. Can't you find any recent news from last week or do you dwell in the past, 2011?? C'mon.. That rag, The Huffington press digs up more garbage than anyone else online & every one hates them basTURDS..
