I’m a Black Customer in Your Restaurant and I Have a Dilemma with Tipping
Sam McKenzie Jr.

I’ve been on only one side of this…I was a white college/graduate student in Boston and waited on tables in high-end restaurants in the 70s. I can attest to the waitstaff doing its best to avoid African American customers because “they don’t tip.” An excellent example of the covert racism that you and many others face every day. Thank you for taking the time to write about your life.
