Waitress Fired For Identifying Two People As A “Black Couple”

A waitress at a restaurant in Maryland Heights, Missouri is out of a job after she labeled two of her customers as “black couple” on a restaurant receipt.

The waitress, who was fired, said she used the label to help remember her table numbers. But the customers and the owner of the restaurant said that the waitress should have chosen a different label.

In an age of celebrating Black History Month every February, watching shows on Black Entertainment Television and watching a number of protesters proclaim that “Black Lives Matter”, was the waitress wrongfully punished?
