Black Employees At NYC TGI Friday’s Claim They Were Replaced With Light-Skinned Workers

By Ruth Manuel-Logan

 

A group of African-American workers at a Manhattan TGI Friday’s restaurant filed a class-action discrimination suit when they were allegedly replaced by lighter-skinned employees after the eatery moved to a new location, states the New York Daily News.

The lawsuit was filed on Thursday at the Bronx Supreme Court. According to reports, the group of black workers let their feelings be known to the higher-ups about the blatantly racist move, but one manager in particular reportedly informed one of the plaintiffs that his preference was to employ a Hispanic staff because of their diligent work ethic.

“It was their opinion that black people were lazy,” Lisa Baker, 48, a waitress, who spoke to the newspaper, said. “We weren’t even given a chance.”

Shocking catalogue of racist incidents on college campuses across the United States from 2011-2015

 

In isolation, incidents of racism often appear to be outliers from the norm, anomalies, a deviation from the way people really think and believe.

First off, the local or national news doesn’t cover issues of racism around the country with any degree of thoroughness or consistency unless it’s an enormous national story or if the story happened locally. Secondly, even when they do get covered, the chance of you happening to hear the story or see the tweet is small. Consequently, it’s easy to assume that if you don’t hear about it, it’s just not happening.

So, when students at Lincoln University in rural Pennsylvania found “NIGGER” spray painted on the entrance sign of the school last week, it was only covered by local media in Pennsylvania and a few very select outlets specializing in news for African Americans. Apparently, this is the pattern for incident after incident on college campuses all across the country.


The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education
, which I am guessing that 99.9 percent of you don’t read on a regular basis, has catalogued every documented and verified incident of racism on college campuses over from 2011 to 2015.
