cajunns: Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Miss Jenkins said that she would never hold a grudge or fake a receipt simply for not receiving a tip. 'I don't get tips all the time. I really don't care cause God is my provider I don't worry about tips.'

So why did you post that receipt except for the fact you were PO'd


Maybe it was the whole "ni**er" thing, rather than the lack of a tip.

Care to explain why? I'd be livid if I signed the "customer copy" and left behind the restaurant copy, which was then manipulated into something like this. If it was then printed in a news paper with my name visible I'd sure as hell consider hiring a lawyer. It's no different than taking out a front page ad in the paper saying "Mr. suchandsuch is a racist."

Then when I told you, you started playing dumb. It was funny. You're funny.


Yes, you told us that the guy didn't sound black, he sounded like a white racist. Although you wouldn't say what made you think that, or what part of what he said was racist when you were asked. It was hilarious indeed.

so, since you clearly believe that it is a black dude who wrote the comment(despite the fact that you haven't come out and said it), please explain how you concluded that it really was a black guy. can YOU tell how a black guy is supposed to write?


I never stated it was definitely a black guy, and don't know if it is or not. You and HotWing do know it was definitely NOT a black guy, and I asked how you two came to that conclusion. You two claim to know what opinions real black people do and do not have, being the anti-racism champions you both are.

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.

the first thing my next door neighbour said to me the weekend we moved in was 'it's nice to have someone living next door that isn't black' (we live in a predominantly black area)

my mouth literally fell open. i was so stunned i didnt say anything and the the moment was past. I felt terrible afterwards (all it takes for evil to flourish etc) but it would be a nightmare to be on really bad terms with your closest neighbour

she keeps trying to be our friend and get us to go round but im having none of it

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

The fact that she did puts let you pretty easily google a possible guy in the area.  The Red Lobster in question lies between his home town and Nashville, so its a likely candidate. On one of the first google hits for this name, it turns up a dating site.  On that is listed as areas of interest is "Call of Duty: Black Ops".  I guess I'm too far out of the dating world, but I didn't think that was a thing you would want to promote as beneficial to attracting women.  I guess I should make sure there are no kids on my lawn...

FrancoFile: By posting the full receipt, she outed the customer.  The name is right there, in lower case under the x-ed out card number.

Yep.  And whether or not it's a fake, she has screwed that guy up.


If it's fake, this girl might spend her most productive years of life paying off a slander suit judgment.

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.
