I expected this kind of behavior from Cracker Barrel customers, but not the discerning Red Lobster customer.

Egoy3k: wingnut396: We have seen such situations be both true and a lie, so we don't know which it is. The waitress should not have posted the alleged racists name out in the open

Why not exactly?


Because we don't know its true at this time.  If this is confirmed that card holder in question did write this on the bill, then I have no problem.  Until such time, we really don't know which is correct.

Well if it's true then she knows it's true, and if she made it up she clearly isn't a nice person and wouldn't concern herself with things such as tact.  In both cases i see no reason for her not to post the name.

gfid: HotWingConspiracy: gfid: I called this as fake when I read the actual headline (not the Fark headline)....A real racist would have refused to have been served by a black waitress or would have just said that shiat to her face.

I also refuse to believe the girl in those pictures is actually black.  Her name sounds too normal.  Toni Christina?  Why isn't there a 'q' or an apostrophe anywhere in her name?

Speaking from experience?

Many racists (you'll see them on this site) are chicken shiat and prefer passive aggression.

I'm not racist, but I have racist friends......how's that for diversity?

Okay, the reason why racial epithets should be spoken and not written is simple.  Unless they were recording you, there's no proof and you get the added bonus of seeing the hurt as soon as it's said rather than passively imagining their reaction to your hate as they read what you wrote on your receipt.


I think you're catching on to what passive aggressive means. They're not interested in a confrontation.

You had a good point until you dropped this.

An offensive comment is not even in the same league as [hysically attacking someone based on race, and you do a diservice to your otherwise valid point by pretending they are.


I'm not comparing the douche who punched the old man to the guy writing some words on a receipt.

wingnut396: The waitress should not have posted the alleged racists name out in the open


If it is real (which I seriously doubt), she should post his name far and wide.

The guy probably just left her no tip because he's a dick and she's probably was a shiatty waitress and decided to attention whore on the internet and accuse him of being a racist because she thought she would get some sympathy.

HALP, I'M A VICTIM OF RACIZM!!!!!

Except for violent retribution from the owner, possible incarceration, fines, and social backlash.   What that has to do with this case I don't quite understand.

The best reason not to post the name is that it makes it much easier to verify if it's true or not. If she really did fake it and left that information on she's especially stupid. Of course, there's really no way to confirm it one way or another unless someone admits it.

Thanks Daily Fail.


...but oh wait!

[img.fark.net image 565x521]

The 'e' is identical.  Now we know Devin Barnes is an asshole.  Thanks for conspicuously not greeking out his name in your article, Daily Fail.  This little girl has more journalistic integrity than your entire editorial staff.


Those two words seem to have been written by the same person.

But I'd question whether that's the handwriting of the person who signed the receipt with a different pen.


Yeah, i don't see it. The "e" is kinda similar, but other than that, it appears to be a different script and pen/pen pressure.

Well, I'm sometimes brutally honest and admit to basing opinions on things for which there is no credible evidence.

Did the waitress fake the receipt to shame the customer who probably didn't leave a tip?  (I don't know.)

How does this affect my life?  (It doesn't.)

Are there racists in Tennessee?  (I'd bet money on it)

Are there black people who cry racism even when there is none?  (I've seen it often enough to know that's true and not an isolated incident)

Does this even rate a news story?  (Of course not.  It's not news, it's Fark linking to the Daily Fail)..

2013-09-09 09:36:14 AM

hailin: They're not identical. They're similar enough that I could believe that they were written by the same hand though. The two n's in "none" aren't identical either, but close enough to one another. Maybe that person writes capital N's different from lowercase n's. It wouldn't be all that unusual. What would be unusual would be for one person to sign the check and then another to get out a different pen to fill in the tip line.

You say "maybe that person writes capital N's different from lowercase n's" like that isn't normal. I don't know anyone that writes them the same way. I write my N's just like it is typed (two vertical, one diagonal) and my n's are like this (little mound).


It's also pretty normal to write letters slightly differently at the start of a word and in the middle, eg. the two 'n's mentioned. One of them follows an 'o' so it's a bit different.

icepriestess: feckingmorons: Have these ever turned out to not be faked?

Ms. Moffitt, Ms. Rogers, Rev. Cuthrell, Ms. Jilani, Prof. Kerri Dunn, and of course who could forget the Rev. Sharpton and Ms. Brawley.

While I'm not claiming that there are not bigots, I don't think they're stupid enough to write none n----- on a restaurant credit card receipt. It may just be that we are tired of hearing the cry of 'Wolf!" over and over, but I just don't believe it.

I find your faith in humanity endearing. Sadly, I have met far too many proud bigots to believe that they are mythical. I was at a bonfire last summer where a 20-something jerk bragged to anyone who listened about how he had done something similar to what the girl in the article says happened to her (and sadly, I have many other similar experiences to draw from). Just because some people fake these incidents doesn't mean they don't exist.

/My boyfriend and I left that bonfire before I lost my temper. We have turned down every invitation to return.


I rather doubt they're missing you much.
 
2013-09-09 09:43:38 AM
One observant poster noted that the two words appeared to be in different handwriting styles with the 'N' capitalised on one line, but not on the other. The letter 'e' also looked to be different in each of the words.

A: I think the "e" is more alike than the "observant" poster has noted.
B: I have often had random capitalization when writing, sometimes a single word will get capitalized if it's the only thing on that line, Sherlock.
C: Nothing is to say that Mr Devin Barnes didn't just write the "none" part, and then his buddy decided that wasn't enough, grabbed the pen and added the N-bomb herself. There's no law that says only one person writes something on a piece of paper.

Well, the thing is this story doesn't affect me at all.  Either some hick in Tennessee wrote a racial epithet on his receipt at Red Farking Lobster or the waitress made it look like he did and posted it on the internet.

Unless the guy or the waitress comes out and makes a tear-filled apology we'll probably never know the truth.

What unpleasant facts am I not excepting?  (lol - I'm trying to work in some way to make fun of you for writing "except" twice when you meant "accept", but I just can't seem to do it in an exceptable way.

Are you taking the waitress's internet post as "fact"?

You may be more gullible than you appear.

Why are people so interested in seeing this as a fabrication?  Not really getting that.
 
2013-09-09 09:48:08 AM
I'm guessing that Devin Barnes ate and paid but might have given her a less that acceptable tip.  They normally give you 2 receipts, one to sign, and one to keep.  If Devin is like me, I sign one and leave the other as I don't need those receipts.  Girl gets pissed at small tip, goes all attention whorey and uses the other to make her masterpiece.
