Racism II

Inspired by the comments over Racism I, here is Part II.

Lots of people say that they see it everywhere in the territory. When you see it, now you know what to do. Write it up as a completely blind item, and post it on your blog. Let's see how far this goes.

There is a particular restaurant, in an unnamed location in this territory of 85 per cent Inuit people, where one of the staff members only waits on white people.

It is unbelievable, this person is in the position where they get to pick their own tables, and without fail, only white folks are at their table.

I don't know if it is a perception over tips, attitudes or just plain old bigotry, but that is what happens.

A person who decides who they will wait on, based only on their ethnic make-up, that is racist. And yes, I've seen it with my own eyes, too many times.
