    An African-American couple left an Austin, Texas IHOP upset after seeing what they say is a racist label on their receipt, Fox 7 reported Monday.

    Rolman Sparkman and his girlfriend Arainia Brown say they were given the receipt with the words "BLACK PPL" written at the top.


    They say what suprised them most was that their waiter, Dwyane Williams, was also black.

    "People being racist - and it's your own people being racist toward you for no reason," said Sparkman. Brown, who has experience working in restruants, says race should never be used to identify customers. "We either put a number - a to-go - the color of their shirt, not their skin color," she said.

    IHOP released a statement saying: "This was a poor choice made by our franchisee's team member, and is not in keeping with policies and procedures. We recognize that it could be offensive and sincerely apologize. Everyone is welcome in our restaurants and our franchisee is using this as a teachable moment for the entire team so that it will not reoccur."

    Clearly, their waiter isn't a poster here otherwise it would've said "Reggies" and those patrons would've been none the wiser. :grad:

    What's the difference between that and saying "lady with blonde hair" or "older couple"?

    Shit's out of hand. Social media ain't helping.

    Where's the punchline?

    How did we get here ..... a black man is now tagged a racist for typing BLACK PPL on a receipt.

    We're surrounded by death and disease in the world. You've got groups like ISIS who would gladly bump themselves off to kill as many Americans as possible. You've got North Korea with the bomb..... THIS is what we're worried about? This makes it on the news.....

    To the entire media community, you're all fucking pathetic by allowing and endorsing ridiculous stories that don't belong in the local rags let alone a national publication. Is the word "racist" such an attention grabber and sales driver that you take ANY story even remotely about it?

    Fucking pathetic media people.

    It's a shame the guy who identified them as "BLACK PPL" was also black or this story could've really picked up some traction. The SJWs are confused on whether or not they should be offended.
