    Waitress Fired for Calling Black Couple ‘Black Couple’ on Receipt

    A St. Louis-area waitress was fired recently after she referred to a black couple as “black couple” on a receipt.
    According to local Fox affiliate KTVI, Kimberli Wilson and a friend were at Patrick’s Westport Grill when she saw the words. “Totally, totally humiliated,” she said. “I was frustrated, I was angry, I was thinking, ‘Really, are we still doing this in 2015?'”


    The waitress explained that she only used the term because she was unable to remember her table numbers. But Wilson said she should have used a different term. “She could have said first table, table at front door, man with coral shirt. There are so many other options that she could have chosen other than that. That’s unacceptable.”

    So you feel it is appropriate to mock the slogan that has come out of the continued murder of black Americans by police officers because someone got fired for a dumb reason?

    I decided to make a joke which clearly flew right over your head. And that's the problem with Political Correctness.

    The joke is pretty obvious. You have previously shown an inclination to disbelieve that the murders have to do with race, though.

    I think the issue of police brutality is an American problem that affects all races and isn't exclusive to one race. The media and people like Blacklivesmatter believe it's entirely exclusive to blacks. And make something that's absolutely a legitimate issue into a muddled, divisive, White vs. Black issue. Everyday police officers of different races brutalized citizens of different races. You never hear a word of it until a White cop does it to a Black citizen.

    Why is that?

    The status quo wants to divide the citizens with a White vs. Black debate. When it's really The State vs. The Citizens debate.


    Since this is entirely off topic I would like to continue the original thread and the complete absurdity that is Political Correctness.

    The reason the focus is on police unfairness to blacks is the proportion of these incidents that happen to blacks and the history of it.
    As for the incident I don't think its absurd at all that it became a big deal because this is totally unprofessional and I personally have never seen any labeling of any receipt that says any thing about my race.
    I doubt when you go to a doctors office they just say hey black guy come here.

    I don't know the specifics of this story but using an example. where my son plays basketball he's the only white kid so should I be offended if someone refers to him as "that white kid" or "white boy"?

    Did the waitress address them as "black patrons" when she took the order? Or say what do you black people want to eat?

    If there is a room full if boys and only one girl would you remember the girl because of the color of her shoes or by her sex?
