    Negro Couple in London Furious Over Being Called "Black Couple"

    Couldn't find a thread about this, but maybe I just searched too little?

    Pub apologises after calling couple 'black' on their bill - when they were the only customers dining

    A student and his girlfriend are furious after being called a 'black couple' on their receipt by staff at a pub.

    Johnson Abraham, 24, and Roxanne Duhur, 21, claim they were the only couple dining when they received their bill at the Slug And Lettuce in Islington Green, North London.

    Mr Abraham, a mechanical engineering student from Dalston, in Hackney, East London, was at the pub last month with Ms Duhur to celebrate her new job as an estate agent.

    They ordered at the bar, without a table number, before going upstairs to find a seat.

    When they went to pay for the meal the comment 'upstairs blk couple' was printed on the bill.

    Mr Abraham said: 'I was outraged. They wouldn't have written "white couple".

    'They could have found another way to describe us. I don't feel it's appropriate.

    'They could have just written "couple". The only other people eating apart from us was a large group.

    'I do class it as racism. I felt like we were being classed by our colour and nothing else. It spoiled what should have been a celebration.'

    Mr Abraham complained to Slug and Lettuce area manager Nick O'Donnell, who admitted the words were 'insensitive'.

    He said: 'The member of the team concerned was trying to make sure that there would be no mistake in sending the food.

    'We often put a note on orders to help reduce the chances of an order being sent to the wrong table.

    'I agree in this case the language used was inappropriate. I apologise for the upset that this has caused.'

    Mr O'Donnell invited the couple back to the pub to prove its 'great intentions'.

    He offered them a complimentary bottle of house Champagne - the £29.95 Duval-Leroy Fleur de Champagne Brut - and a sharing platter worth £11.25.

    But Mr Abraham, from Dalston, said: 'Champagne and a platter isn't compensation. I want an apology.

    'The area manager has phoned to apologise but the waitress hasn't.'

    A Slug and Lettuce spokeswoman said managers had spoken to restaurant staff in its outlets with a dining area split over two floors to avoid making the same mistake.

    She added: 'We have taken appropriate action with the person involved.'

    I lived in Honduras, Central America for several years of my youth and we were routinely referred to as the "gringos" or in other words, the whites. We were sometimes called "payulos" by the native mestizos, which means approx. "pale faces".
    It's to be expected that you'll be referred to by some racial/ethnic label when you're a foreigner of an alien race in a relatively homogeneous nation.

    I'm sorry but that's a very lame excuse ...

    NO OTHER DINERS COULD POSSIBLY BE AS UGLY AS THIS PAIR!!!!!

    You can't be serious --- what's next? Persian cat complaining about being called a Persian cat? Jellies rallying because they find jellybabies being sold deeply offensive? Head of iceberg lettuce filing a lawsuit because being called a head of iceberg lettuce implies it doesn't grow in a temperate climate?

    Ridiculous, nothing short of hilarious actually, no half inch short of a good April Fool's joke - well that is, it would be if it wasn't all so true and sad that the situation is so dire that ethnic minorities make a fuss about anything, even if it doesn't affect them. Perhaps next time they dine there, the Staff will be kind enough to refer to them as "Upstairs Whiny Couple" instead.

    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    Isn't it typical of Negroes to try and humiliate Whites as much as possible and draw as much attention as they can to their cause? This jerk is now dictating his conditions to include an apology by the Waitress (because clearly, the Area Manager doesn't satisfy his vindictiveness) and he’ll no doubt be getting a real buzz out of the power he feels he has in this situation.

    If I was in a Jamaican bar with my wife and we were referred to as “The White Couple” I honestly wouldn’t feel offended. I’ve just thought about this seriously and it really wouldn’t bother me – leaving aside the issue of whether I’d ever go to a dump like Jamaica!

    I’ve seen this kind of episode before though where a Negro feels (s)he’s being “victimised” and really exploits to the full a minor incident that others would let pass in a more dignified manner. I suspect it's all to do with inferiority complexes and political point-scoring and, sadly, I’ve come to the conclusion that many of them are born with a grudge that is never far below the surface

    Indeed, neither would I be offended. Actually coming to think of it, everytime I heard myself referred to as "The Austrian" or "The German" up in Scotland, the feeling that filled me was more akin to one of pride and privilege rather than one of shame and discrimination. But I certainly didn't feel offended. I cannot change what I am, and am fiercely proud of what I am, so I don't feel offended if someone points that out, I am actually more likely to feel flattered.

    But then again, it could have something to do with the fact that for me there was no political elite attempting to put the perverse idea in my head that I might be British regardless of my roots, it was always clear that I was "the German" or "the Austrian", and I had no problem with that, quite to the contrary.

    It is only that with all these racial aliens, they are made to believe just because their mother gave birth on a British Airways flight or something like that, they have just as much of a claim to their new country as the autochtonous population, this inevitably breeds an inferiority complex for them when they figure people's natural reaction is that they're not one of them.

    They didn’t need to put 'upstairs negro couple' on the bill seeing as they ordered fried chicken, what, no watermelon? ! You've gotta love stereotypes, they exist because they are formed after continuous behavior patterns... Take that you liberal-we'reallthesame-swine!

    Well, then, I guess they'll be more furious at being called a "negro couple" than a black couple.

    black shame

    My word! What kind of idiot is insulted by the obvious?? Why on earth is it 'inappropriate' to call someone black if they obviously are? His reaction only advertised his stupidity.
