Washu, you're a total jackarse. If the only info I had about this was my own, then how the hell did this thread get made you idiot? No, it's 99% of the servers I have ever talked to and worked with and on this board, you moron, or can you not read. The majority of my black customers (in a regular chain, not high end fine dining) tip under the accepted social standard. Go to other websites like bitter and you'll see that black people get tipped like crap from the majority of black people regardless of the service. Black servers at my restaurant fight to not take black tables, and no, they aren't racist against themselves. They see what happens all the time. Also on bitter, an HONEST black person will tell you that yeah, the lower to mid class blacks she knows just were never taught to tip. Maybe you and I were, Voz, but not everyone was. But really, as an adult, people need to educate themselves on how to live in a civilized society. It's not color as much as it is mindset and class level, but since I live in NY and not the south I don't get white hillbillies as much (some trailer trash where I am) or it would be the other way around.
Either you're stupid or really, really oversensitive to race issues. We are telling you, on this site, on every tipping site from every server site, the same thing we see everyday. No, we don't drop service, dope, because we depend on tips. We (the ones who care about their money) treat all tables like they are gonna tip a lot because you never know who will. So, no I don't throw in the towel when I see my table. I just do a great job and hope for the best. I get suprised, of course. One of my best tippers are black. Yet still, the majority under tips and runs the server into the ground.
You wanna get passionate about it? Go to some of our communities and educate people. Go out to lunch with your friends and actually speak up like I do when they undertip. Don't make up imaginary reasons in your head (yeah, she greeted the white table first, she's racist) or (they treated us different because she's a black girl with white supremacist beliefs). Just f*&ken tip like someone who has some class and good upbringing. Do you know what your parents look like when you tip like crap? No, really, I would never do that to the image of my parents. I was brought up to be a civilized human being. Sorry if you weren't, or you were brought up to feel entitled to stuff cause you're skin is a darker color. Whatever. Oh, and don't call me your 'sibling'.
"and yeah...why don't you go ahead and come in on Sunday, too...get a jump on the week, k?"
