Servers treat young people different too, for the same reason that they're perceived as poor tippers.

Just as wrong or no?

My wife has said the same. Also older white people with money (country club types/ lower/ high society types) don't tip very well either.

Now the guys who own things like Murphy farms and stuff like that are more down to earth and tip well.


There is a line of perception across a few different fields. They are blurry because of the exception to rules type, but they are there none the less

Black people not tipping is common knowledge, right or wrong.

Ageism is wrong, too.

Dunno if it's "just as wrong." I don't really like trying to classify which types of discrimination are worst.

it's amazing how quickly people will start to discriminate when you monetarily incentivize them to.

I don't blame them. Stereotypes are funny because they are true. This happens because they are repeatedly treated that way by black patrons, not prejudice.

Well, after a lot of back and forth, it seems that there still might be a bit of prejudice, but by and large, it is a monetary issue.

Who is gonna give you the bucks? That is who I want to serve. Hard to grasp?

Just think, the goverment giving out bucks and guess who gets behind them? All who get the money. Money talks.

You've just sided with Grits 'R Great saying that Cam sucks because black people can't play QB.

You also have to throw in the manner in which people learn how to tip. Some people don't even know how to calculate a tip. So education plays a role in this as well.
