We hear it far to often these days. Every person of one race or another is racist simply for existing. In most instances, this is targeted toward the Caucasians. While this is problematic, it is also a problem when these same individuals, who cry “racism,” target individuals because of their race. This situation becomes worst when a company projects themselves as completely complacent to this; and thus we begin our article into Denny’s.
What should had been an ordinary dining experience, for one couple, quickly turned into a nightmare. According to the couple, they were seated at a booth, to which their waiter arrived and took drink orders. This was the last time they would see him until the time they ultimately left.
The waiter took the drink orders and left. What started out as a couple of minutes would turn into over twenty minutes without the drinks. At this point, one of the individuals involved informed us that they began watching the waiter closely. He informs us that a pattern was quickly noted: the waiter tended to only tables that had Hispanic customers. At the same time, he would completely ignore what few white customers were in the restaurant. This would later be included in his report with their corporate office.
After the approximate wait of twenty minutes, another waitress took their drink orders and quickly returned, at which time she took their food order. After waiting nearly an hour and a half, the couple involved informed us that both, the waiter and waitress returned with their food. It was, at this point, the waiter is accused of making the following statement while laughing:
I know that I’m an hour late, but at least I eventually came back
According to the couple, they quickly ate and left, leaving no tip. As soon as they left the location, the corporate call began. As it is typical with companies such as this, Denny’s attempted to scrub the situation under the carpet. They offered the couple free meals of their choosing, the offer was declined for obvious reasons. Later in the day, they claim that the location they had stopped at began making calls to them, making repeated offers, all of these were also rejected.
The couple states that they are not going to seek legal action. Instead, they want to bring awareness to the hypocrisy of the “anti-racism movement.” In a statement, the man involved told us:
The thing that pisses me off about this kind of stuff is the sheer hypocrisy of it all. If I had gone in there, called that man a Sp***, or any other derogatory name used against Hispanics, how do you think that would had gone? I would had gotten my a** handed to me. The same goes toward the black community, if I had called them a racial slur. AND YET it’s okay for these groups to target us simply for being white? No, this needs to be exposed and I hope your platform does it.
We had attempted to contact the specific Denny’s location but were unable to reach anybody. To put it simply, nobody would answer the phone. However, that will not stop us from doing what we do: Exposing this sort of nonsense.
