Quote: Then there is the mac daddy question... Does race affect size of tip? Almost every restaurant or bar that I have ever worked at had the employee who would give speech to the unspeakable. That African Americans tip less than Caucasian diners. Is it true?
The study found that 63 percent of blacks and 30 percent of whites didn't understand that the standard restaurant tip in the United States is 15 to 20 percent. The difference between how blacks and whites view tipping has serious ramifications for restaurants, including lawsuits and lost profits, Williams reports.
"The average tip from a black customer is about 13 percent of the bill. The average tip from a white customer is about 16.5 percent of the bill," says Dr. Michael Lynn, the study's author.
Clearly, this study was conducted by the Klan, or possibly George Wallace funded it?
