A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

One day I was at Long John Silver’s with a few friends. We was behind a few friends in the line. Behind the ordering counter everyone could see the station where the food was prepared. And then out of no where one of the girls mumbled, “it’s a lot of black people working in here…they love their fish.” Then one of my friends said nicely, “apparently you do too since you are in here”. When it was time for them to order the same girl yelled, “Why that man is not wearing any gloves, he need to put some on when he makes my food.” Then there was a big commotion so the manager came out and informed the customer that employers always wash their hands constantly but they can wear gloves when making her food if it’s a problem. All I could do was shake my head and say what a shame. I felt like that customer just wanted to cause problems. She could have handled that situation a better way.

  1. That girl was just ignorant. There was no need for her to make stereotypical comments and make a fuss about how the people are preparing her food. I used to work at fast food restaurant and people don’t seem to realize that gloves can actually carry more germs than your bare hands and that is why employees don’t wear gloves and wash their hands constantly.

  2. I agree with the comment above. I think that the young lady was acting out of ignorance. It is a shame that people utter stereotypical notions and dont stop to think that someone might have heard them and might be hurt or offended. It is not easy working in a fast food restaurant and customers like that young lady dont make it any easier.
