• This Profile in Political Correctness is GUARANTEED to Make Your Head Explode

    Grab some duck tape, folks, because you’re going to need it for this Profile in Political Correctness.

    Maryland Heights, Missouri-based Patrick’s Westport Grill owner Patrick Hanon fired a waitress last week for labeling two black customers as the “black couple.”

    One of the offended patrons is Kimberli Wilson, who says the description on the receipt hurt her feelings. “I noticed on the receipt it said black couple,” an angry Wilson said, adding that she was “totally, totally humiliated. I was frustrated, I was angry. I was thinking, really. Are we still doing this in 2015?”

    The now-unemployed waitress confessed to labeling the pair of black customers as the “black couple,” and called it an extremely bad decision she made when she couldn’t remember her table numbers.

    But remorse didn’t save her racist hide.

    “I am very saddened by this whole situation when I got word, there was no more sleeping.” Hanon, who’s owned the grill for 33 years, said.

    Really? No sleep, over this? Come on, man!

    Are we really this thin-skinned and insecure?

    The couple was black. The waitress–who appeared to be very apologetic–had to lose her job over this? And what’s with this owner saying he’s losing sleep? If it hasn’t happened in 33 years of business, doesn’t that prove this to be just an isolated incident?

    Sure, the poor woman could’ve written a dozen other things on the ticket to identify the couple–shirt color, table location, whatever. But is it really fair to fire the woman for writing “black couple” on a receipt that belongs to a couple of black people?

    And the madness doesn’t stop there.

    From Fox2now:

    Patrick’s owner Rick Hanson has tried to make things right including offering Wilson and her brother unlimited meals. Something Wilson says was not necessary.

    Patrick Hanson says “We’ve already had lineups with all of our servers and bartenders, but I’m also going to bring in a consultant to give some diversity training so we all understand what it’s all about. You’ve been around 33 years you think you’re doing everything right, but now I understand there’s another step I got to go

    Wilson adds she’s glad that Mr. Hanon took the initiative to reach out to her to offer an apology and she’s glad he’s going to take steps for diversity training so that something good comes out of this.

    Wow!

    My favorite part about Obama’s America is all the racial harmony.
