Why is this newsworthy? If it did happen (I find it hard to believe that the servers and manager would go along with the racist) then it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Hmm, now I want Buffalo Wild Wings.

They didn't even dogwhistle.... wow racists are getting lazy. I'd expect at least a "We don't like what they're saying they're being too loud, I can't eat with their ghetto talk" or some other bullshit, but no they just said it's cause they're Black?


Really I'm half wondering if it was the place itself kicking them out because they didn't want to deal with a party of 17 people.

I have skepticism that any of this even happened. This is probably just a Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton style shakedown of this business.

I'd say the White patron shouldn't need to sit next to this Black group if they don't want to, but that it should be on them to move themselves to a different table if they're so inclined, instead of the restaurant being obligated to move anyone else just to accomodate someone else.

I'm beginning to wonder if it was simply the place trying to get them to leave them out because they didn't want to deal with the party, I can't see how a company would kick out a party of 17 versus a party of 1 no matter what kind of regular customer they were.

Or if there was something else involved, unless that one person was the damn owner of the place and\or tipped with 100 dollar bills there has to be something else going on here.

I know racism is bad, but racist incidents happen daily? It really isn't newsworthy if this happened the way they said it did.

I'm white and I can't, so I doubt. If someone is racist and thus can't sit next to black people, I would ask the racist to move or leave, not the black family.

Good on you. But there's still a big portion of people in this country who would take the side of the racists. I don't think that's debatable.

Exactly. It shouldn't be going on today, segregation ended like 50 years ago.

So yeah it's a blast from the past.

The US is still very segregated, even just by glancing at a map of racial demographics.

Something here seems fishy. I can get the customer being a jerk, but why the hell would employees move a table of 17 people because one customer was a moron? They know it'll be bad for business, and that this sort of shit goes down very badly, so just...why?

Such a boring and uninteresting "story", but some groups are protected and get spotlight status so the media companies can make a quick buck. I wonder if these companies would like to hear about all the times I've been called a cracker, all the times I've had to listen to people of color talking shit on my Race, how fun it is to be a White Man in a United States jail, how many times we've been unjustly murdered by police, or how on your first day in a black school, you get punched in the chest and asked: "is your heart beating, White Boy?"

But some he said/she said bullshit goes down at a fuckin' Buffalo Wild Wings, and people are expected to get those wagging fingers erect for some prime time moral posturing. I don't wish to be inflammatory but this shit is fucking ridiculous and because of the color of my skin, I have to pay the price.

You have it better compared to minorities but it still sucks overall you know?


I honestly want to know who's a minority, because almost every other race outnumbers us by wide margins and this is a post borders world we live in. You think I have it better? How? Our history has been one catastrophe after another and everybody has always been trying to murder, subjugate and enslave us. Don't tell me I have it better, you don't know shit about being poor or White. White people aren't shit to this world but a commodity to be exploited and discarded. Nobody respects us, appreciates us, or gives a shit about us on a collective basis; especially the ones that actually come from us.

Yes, I do, especially since it's spoken with the intent to disrespect and degrade. Are you implying that because of the color of my skin, I don't even have the right to be offended at being racially degraded? I guess that really is how worthless I am to society.

The thing is, no black person under 30 calls us crackers. Just go on black twitter to see what they really call us these days lol.

Hey all. This really did happen. There's no need for "skepticism" and there's nothing "fishy" about the situation. Racism, even comically stupid racism, exists whether you want to believe it or not. Bad judgements were made by managers of the company and the regular customer is a snowflake. The managers have been fired and customer banned from Buffalo Wild Wings. The company is in damage control mode as we speak.
