Referring to the African-American customers, a Mississippi restaurant employee printed “Black bitches in silver car” on their receipt

Who says Racism is dead? It is very much alive and well.

Concerned Individuals on Facebook from all over the world were shocked by the audacity of an employee working the drive-thru window at a Mississippi restaurant.

It was a bright day in Mississippi and two African American ladies decided to visit ‘Who Dat’s’ – a popular restaurant to order a take-home meal, but what they noticed gave them the shock of their lives.

Recounting their experience, Alexia Washington said she and a friend visited Who Dat’s on Friday and placed a meal order, but what they were served disgusted them. “Something told me to look at my receipt,” Washington said, according to WMC Action News. Printed on the receipt were the words “Black bitches in silver car.”

Washington said she immediately reported the inappropriate receipt to Who Dat’s manager, who made the employee apologize. But she was still disturbed by the restaurant worker’s hateful message, so she decided to post an image of it on Facebook.

Washington went on to explain her decision to share the message on social media, saying she “wasn’t going to say anything and [was going to] give them the opportunity to do right but nothing has been done,” according to the Clarion-Ledger.

 

She claims she had requested that the employee who printed the slur on the receipt be fired, as she felt “racially ridiculed and demeaned as an African American Female.” But when her messages to the restaurant’s higher-ups seemed to be ignored, she decided to go public.

“I seek justice for this hate crime and I will no longer remain silent,” she wrote. “I’ve lived in Oxford for 5 years and I still have to deal with this type of ignorance. I’m not a rude or hateful person. I was not rude when I was at this establishment and was greeted with this kind of service. I will not stand for it.”

It appears Washington’s decision paid off, as Who Dat’s posted a reply to the customer’s post, assuring her that the employee had been fired, according to the Clarion-Ledger. But the restaurant’s owner, Wylie Coleman, then took justice one step further by meeting with Washington face to face.

The restaurant also claimed it has fired the employee and he is no longer allowed on the business’s property after printing a derogatory name on an African American customer’s receipt.

After the apology and actions of the restaurant’s management, Washington deleted her Facebook posts of the incident.

Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. It is not new to cases like this one.
