D's Wings in Blythewood, SC Complaint - Discrimination at D's Wings
BLYTHEWOOD, SOUTH CAROLINA -- This restaurant discriminated against my family and I and the server agreed that they were. Two managers spoke with us and did not resolve the issue. A USC football game was on. The establishment has 12 televisions. We asked to watch the NFL game that was on. We only asked that they change 1 TV The manager said that it would change 3 or 4. The server checked and did admit that it would change two. I told my son to count the number of people in the restaurant and there were a total of 54 people (excluding the 8 of us). There were 12 TVs and they would have had to change 2 for us to see the game. We made up 14.81% of their business and might I say that we spent a great deal on alcohol along with other foods. Two TVs would have been 20% of the TVs. Was it too much to ask to watch 2 TVs?
When we threatened to leave, they did not attempt to stop us. We were the only black and ethnic table in the restaurant. Our server was black. Essentially, management did not care about any of our needs. Our server was awesome and asked us to stay and convinced us that if we went anywhere else we would not have her to service us. It made me laugh and I stayed for her. The food was mediocre, the service was great, but the racism was obvious.
I WILL NEVER DINE AT ANOTHER D'S WINGS AND HOPE THAT IF ANYONE READING THIS BELIEVES IN HAVING A TRULY UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THAT YOU WILL NO LONGER DINE THERE EITHER. More than anything I felt as those the small town of Blythewood and D's Wings is still set in a time period of Jim Crow.
