Black on black racism, who'd have thought!

Black Sues Black for Racism -- And Gets $40,000!
By Alex P. Kellogg, BET.com Staff Writer

Posted August 14, 2003 -- In an increasingly common racial discrimination case, a Black man won a settlement against another Black man for being degraded because of his skin color.

A dark-skinned Black waiter at an Applebee's restaurant near Atlanta alleged that his light-skinned Black supervisor was discriminating against him. To settle the suit, the company paid him $40,000.

Dwight Burch, a former employee, accused his manager at the Jonesboro, Ga., restaurant of repeatedly referring to him as a "tar baby" and "Black monkey" during his three months at the restaurant. Burch also alleged in his suit that his manager told him to bleach his skin and that he was fired when he threatened to report the man to officials at Applebee's headquarters.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission helped settle the "color discrimination" lawsuit, saying that such cases are on the rise. The number of cases involving allegations of skin-tone discrimination jumped from 413 in fiscal year 1994 to 1,382 in 2002, according to the EEOC. About 20 of the complaints filed during that time period have led to lawsuits, while most of the rest have been settled out of court. They currently comprise roughly 3 percent of the 85,000 cases the agency gets annually.

Burch experienced what Black scholars refer to as "colorism," discrimination within the Black community that goes back to the days of slavery in the United States, when Blacks with lighter complexions often received better treatment, such as less-demanding jobs and work in the master's house, while those with darker skin had to toil in the fields.

In a statement, the EEOC noted that Applebee's has added a protection against skin-tone discrimination to its anti-discrimination policies. Applebee's also agreed to provide employees cultural sensitivity training and to report any similar complaints of discrimination at its Georgia restaurants for the next year and a half.

Frank Ybarra, a spokesman for the restaurant chain, said in a statement that "No one should have to put up with mean and humiliating comments about the color of their skin on the job?. It makes no difference that these comments are made by someone of your own race. Actually, that makes it even worse." The statement also said the company denied the allegations but settled the case to clear the way for the sale of its Atlanta-area restaurants.

Can't we all just get along?

When has he ever said racism doesn't exist. There are racist people out there, you try to contend that everyone that isn't black is racist it seems.

I did a lot of factory work at one time, and there was serious animousity between Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans. They called each other gringo or wet-back and mostly did not get along at all.

no... I contend that white americans choose to wear huge racial blinders, in the hope of ignoring the plight of those around them - and that alot of them, like LDS, are outright racist.

lds claims that white privilege is something that used to exist, but, you know, doesn't happen in these enlightened (uber conservative) times. in fact, it's the reverse: LDS is retarded enought to claim that blacks are getting the better deal (I know...!) by robbing the poor white taxpayers.

perhaps a rant on how laborers are actually really the rich ones is in order? old weirdo.

I don't recall saying racism doesn't exist. I did say I don't think there is white privilege.

As a matter of fact, I recall having pointed out what a racist jackass you are.

And now it appears you're not even smart enough to remember that.
Unless you can show me where I said there is no racism?

See the above response. It appears it fits you as well. (with the exception of actually being a racist)

Well if he is, it's not as obvious as it is with you, which is why I wanted him to not think I believed he was in your category.

Really? I don't think race should be a factor in anything. You apparently do.
Hence, you are the racist.

The body of a teen, the brain of a pre-schooler.

What does age have to do with this site? Are you going to cease using drugs when you reach a certain age?


I'd say quit before you make yourself look really foolish, but it's way too late for that.

The only racist rhetoric on this board has come from you, junior.

BTW, what political party was responsible for 'Jim Crow' laws, and had a stranglehold on the segregated south?

HINT: the same one that refused to register Condi Rice's father to vote because he was black.

"I'd say quit before you make yourself look really foolish, but it's way too late for that. "

oh gawd, I'm so embarassed. yes, if you do an age poll... you'll see that this site (as all drug related sites are) is overwhelmingly youth dominated. but you already know that, don't you? just trying to throw off suspicion that you're a child molester, huh?

Typing without thinking? In other words... business as usual.
