Man Accused of Writing Racial Slur on Receipt Sues Restaurant, Waitress


By Howard Portnoy

If you are skeptical at this point over stories alleging racism or other forms of intolerance, you are not to be faulted. In the past four months, there have been no fewer than a dozen incidents in which a member of a “protected class” claimed to be the target of bigotry. All have proven hoaxes.

The latest incident is similar in its broad outlines to one of the best-known hoaxes, one involving a lesbian waitress who claimed an ugly anti-gay message was scrawled on her guest check on the line where the tip normally goes. The waitress, Dayna Morales, invented the incident and was summarily fired by the restaurant, but not before earning a tidy profit for her “pain and suffering” from bleeding heart supporters of her plight.

The latest would-be victim, also a waitress, has likewise been the recipient of a cash windfall, in this case totaling over $10,000. She is identified by The Tennessean as Toni Christina Jenkins. It is Jenkins’s contention that a customer wrote none on the line of the credit card receipt reserved for the tip rand scrawled the n-word in the space marked total.

Jenkins posted a photocopy of the receipt on Facebook page, along with the message:

This is what I got as a tip last night … so happy to live in the proud southern states … God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee.Jenkins Facebook

She also spelled out the name of the customer, Devin Barnes, in case her followers on Facebook were unable to read his alleged scribbled signature. The Facebook post has since been deleted, though the image of her holding up her cash “award,” along with a link to an upbeat story at The Grio remain.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
