Thailand Restaurant Complaint - RACISM - THAI CUISINE

Review by glitter1964 on 2010-06-18
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Black man walks in and asks to use the restroom. The owners inform him that the restroom is only available to customers. He expresses the urgency of his request but the owners denied him the use of the facility.

Shortly after, a white man walks in with the same request and the owners also tell him that the restroom is for customer use only but make an exception and allow him use of the resroom.

Were you actually involved in this?

Is this a riddle? Or did it actually happen and were you one of the people involved?

When I first started reading it, I thought it was a joke. "A guy walks into a bar..."

And what did you do? Continue eating you Kung Pao Chicken and not say a word to the management then run home to give this vague story about it?

It could be that they figured this was the second guy that made this request and decided what the heck.

Were these people paying customers, by any chance?

Could it also be that they recognized the 2nd gentleman as a frequent customer and decided to allow him use of the restroom whereas the first man was someone they had never seen before? Things are seldom so black and white.

Maybe the second guy threatened them with the death penalty if they didn't allow him to use the can....

There are a million different reasons that this could have happened (if it really did). It's the management's call and that is fine with me.
I don't care for That food anyway. Too much sugar and peanuts in any dinner entee` is just wrong!!

Sorry, racism shouldn't be taken so lightly, if that was even the case. But sometimes you just have to laugh at how ignorant racism actually is. Forgive me for not sounding PC, but this is a break-down in my community: Whites hate some Native American Indians, but don't mind the Blacks or Hispanics. Native Americans hate some Whites and Blacks, but ALL Mexicans. Hispanics hate Native Americans, but only some Whites and Blacks. Blacks not digging on the Hispanics too much, seem to like Natives, and only pretend to like Whitey. Or at least this is what I've gathered over the past 20-yrs here. Too funny, sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh. Life's too short to go through with hate in your heart!

Did each man ask the same restaurant employee that question?

This wouldn't be a case of racism anyway. It technically would be prejudice.

Prejudice based on racism.

Perhaps.
