Dining while black.

Image result for tamaa young angels imagesDyamn! Black women can't eat at a restaurant in peace up in HARLEM?!  What is America coming to?

 I mean we knew it was tough to just chill and have a nice meal as  a person of color away from home here in America. But Harlem?!

"Two African-American women are suing a popular Harlem eatery, alleging they felt “violated” after an employee racially profiled and falsely accused them of dining and dashing.

Tara Fitzgibbon visited the Angel of Harlem restaurant on Frederick Douglass Blvd. near W. 122nd St. for the first time on Feb. 10 with her friend Tamara Young. As they ordered drinks, a manager came up behind them and gruffly accused them of racking up a tab during a previous visit.

Fitzgibbon, of New Rochelle, Westchester County, and Young, of Harlem, charge in a complaint filed with the city’s human rights commission earlier this month that they felt “dehumanized” by the experience, as the manager snatched menus from their hands, violently banged his hands on the bar and accused them of “lying and stealing.”

“It was a public embarrassment and humiliating to us and to everyone else who was in the restaurant,” Fitzgibbon told the Daily News over the phone Tuesday. “There was a lot of people there.”

The two women tried to ease the situation, telling the fuming manager that they had never been to the restaurant before.

But the unidentified manager was unrelenting and told Fitzgibbon that he had surveillance footage of her dining and dashing at the eatery the week before. “Look at your tape because I was not in Angel last week,” Fitzgibbon said, according to the complaint.

To her shock, the manager then showed Fitzgibbon surveillance footage of a woman who she says looked nothing like her — except that she was also black.

“What, do all black people look alike to you?” Young exclaimed in response, according to Fitzgibbon.

The manager became “violently defensive” after Young’s comment and pushed her as she and Fitzgibbon left the restaurant, the complaint states.

Richard St. Paul, a Westchester attorney representing Fitzgibbon and Young, said the women will seek damages in the “hundreds of thousands” for the emotional distress and embarrassment that the manager inflicted.

Fitzgibbon also says she hopes that their complaint will force restaurant management to retrain the staff.

“This shouldn’t have to happen to anyone else,” she said.

Anahi Angelone, the owner of Angel of Harlem, did not return several requests for comment on Tuesday.

When The News first reported on the allegations in February, Angelone insisted that “there are two sides to every story” but declined to specifically address the women’s allegations.
“It’s very sad that it went down the way it went down,” Angelone said at the time.

Angelone is also facing flak over a sexual harassment lawsuit filed last month by an employeeource] at Angel of Harlem’s sister restaurant, Corner Social, on Lenox Ave. near W. 126th St."  [Source]

Ladies, next time take it down to Amy Ruth's, and I promise you that there will be no such problems.

Besides, the food will be a lot better and less expensive.

Wow, yet another story of black women behaving badly. If it's not preventing patrons from using a golf course, it's "dining and dashing" at a popular Harlem restaurant. When you think about it, it's no wonder businesses aren't all that enthusiastic about being frequented by black women customers. Thanks for highlighting this problem, Field.

Hmmm, the U2 song didn't mention anything about falsely accusing restaurant diners of being thieves. Bono must have forgotten to include that part.

Fully 90% of the news is about disgruntled colorful people acting out.

Without aggrieved POC here, America would hardly have any news - except for the homos.

I guess we'd have 24/7 homo news.

I worked in restaurants for ten years and I'm here to say that that's not how you do it.
If you suspect a customer of earlier misdeeds, you call the shift manager, who will politely take the customer aside with security and ask them about it out of sight and earshot of the other customers.
Anything you do that either interrupts the atmosphere or disrupts the routine in a restaurant is incredibly damaging to the prospects of getting the diners present at the disruption (and everyone they know) to ever return, and you really need them to do so.
Even before the racism gets factored in, and I would imagine it would be very bad PR in Harlem, they have already shot themselves in the foot with incompetent management.
In my experience, there is a lot of drug use in restaurant work, so perhaps the "unidentified manager" wasn't able to score before their shift and wasn't in any condition to deal with the public?
Or maybe they're just a racist asshole with impulse issues who would have been OK as a dishwasher or a prep cook but should never have been allowed to interact with the customers.

Got some bad news about Joy Reid, for those who are fans of hers. It looks like she may have said some homophobic stuff on her old blog, back in the day, which is coming back to bite her.

She claims that some of the offensive things she is accused of saying are things that she didn't actually say, and that she has been hacked. Okay. Maybe so. I would not rule anything out in this era of nasty online troll skullduggery, but still ... this does not look good.

EXCLUSIVE: Joy Reid Claims Newly Discovered Homophobic Posts From Her Blog Were ‘Fabricated’

If it turns out that she has made up the story about being hacked, she will almost certainly end up regretting it. Better to admit she previously held some ugly prejudices, learned some lessons, apologize, and move on. For a journalist, brazenly lying will ultimately be way more damaging to her career (unless, of course, she worked at Fox News).

Just ask Brian Williams, who lost his anchor job over telling some truly inconsequential fibs.

Sounds like a misogynistic racist to me. Got his jollies abusing those poor women!

“It was a public embarrassment and humiliating to us and to everyone else who was in the restaurant,” Fitzgibbon told the Daily News over the phone Tuesday. “There was a lot of people there.”

And yet in today's society of meek sheeple, nobody got up protested and/or just left! They sat there and put up with the ruckus,embarrassment,humiliation and just plain nastiness that these women were subjected to, as they ate their food. Not knowing what and how it was prepared if one was to judge by the virulent 'manager'! This didn't bother them?

PilotX said...

If they protested there was a chance the cops could turn their ire on them. We're in interesting times Desert, you don't know what these cops are up to. Be careful.

Not if everyone would have left, simply gotten up and paid their bill or cancelled their order and left!

That was a very abusive situation! Even if it was true that they had been in there before and not paid, that's no way to handle that! If only out of, as Doug mentioned, respect for the other clients who were eating. Ugh! Ugly!

Lilacpr said...

@Pilot, it's not illegal to pay your bill and leave a restaurant as far as I know. Or does one have to be held hostage to witness the degradement of other human beings? and then have a hearty appetite also? I'll be damned if I'm going to sit there and continue eating with a crazy like that loose, what if they decide to do it to me next?

This surprises you?

While I’m sure everyone in the restaurant was made very uncomfortable by the manager’s tirade and bad attitude, the problem is the other diners had no way of knowing whether he was right or wrong on the facts. For all they knew, the women really might have pulled a “dine and dash” on a previous occasion. The only thing that was certain was that, regardless of the women’s innocence or guilt, he was handling things very badly.

Consequently, everyone just kept their heads down and hoped the situation would resolve itself quickly so they could get back to eating.

More like 90% of the news in America is from Donald Trump and his regime loyalists spouting ever more delusional "alternative facts" from the alternative universe that they reside in.

Whites created the greatest countries on earth. Everyone wants to come to white countries BECAUSE they are white countries AND because whites are the only non-racist people on earth. Some Asian countries are really nice, but nobody wants to move there because Asians actually ARE racist.

Immigration turns white countries into non-white countries that no one wants to be in.

You gotta know when to stop.

Toronto terrorist turns out to be a maggot infested Trumpaholic with similar ideas about women as Drumpf.

Alek Minassian, the man who killed 10 people by driving a van down a busy street in Toronto on Monday, is a terrorist.

We know this because he told us so. On Tuesday afternoon, Facebook confirmed the authenticity of a post in his name, in which he pledged allegiance to something called the “Incel Rebellion.” This is not an organized militant group but rather an ideal developed by the so-called “incel” movement — an online community of men united by their inability to convince women to have sex with them. (“Incel” stands for “involuntarily celibate.”)

It doesn't surprise me, I'm just stating a fact. What does surprise me is that you would think that they would think the manager was telling the truth, why because they were black women?

Note to white boys thinking of murdering folks because you can't get laid:

1. Grow the fuck up.

2. Women are human beings with free will and the same rights and responsibilities as men, and none of them owe you, or anyone else, a damn thing, much less the use of their bodies for your sick pleasure.

3. Grow the fuck up. A real man would not whine about not getting laid, much less invent stupid names for not being able to get laid, or, and I can't stress this enough, kill people in a goddamn tantrum over not being able to get laid.

4. Nobody can always get laid every time they want to. Get over it. Perhaps try masturbating to less violent imagery, or (!) no imagery at all.

5. Guns and romance do not mix. Put down one or the other before you leave the house.

6. If you want to be with a woman, try talking to some women and paying enough attention to them to figure out what they like and dislike. They have to be attracted to you before they will let you have sex with them. Understand that you aren't the only one interested in this and they don't want to fuck everyone, so you need to distinguish yourself on a personal and individual level. You may see them as items to collect, but they do not see you that way, so trying to outcompete other males most likely not only won't work, but will leave you feeling slighted and prone to murderous tantrums.

7. In other words, grow the fuck up, calm the fuck down, and get a grip on something besides your dick or your gun.
