Could you pass this test?
The amount of guilt I feel over being born white can not be calculated.
Nope I was born to white parents who had two kids and we lived in the same home until I and then my sister moved away to go to college.
The owner, an obvious racist gets away with not being sued by making it optional.
I’m proud of my white heritage and it’s time for those born black to become just as proud of theirs.
A restaurant in New Orleans is hoping to raise awareness of racial wealth differences in the country by charging white customers more.
SAARTJ is a pop-up restaurant in the Louisiana city run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey who will be charging white customers $18 (£13) extra for their meal.
Much like the cafe in Melbourne, Australia which charged a ‘man-tax’ due to the gender pay gap, SAARTJ is charging an increase to highlight the racial pay gap in New Orleans.
In 2013, a study found that the average household income of an African-American in the city was 54 per cent lower than that of a white person.
This has a higher probability of success because men like to go were the women are.
Low on scientific bearing high on the lust scale!
Of course was all brought to our attention when the biggest racist in “Residential History,” was put into the White House.
Around the world, different races have varying levels of access to wealth and resources.
And in America, the disparity between black and white social mobility is still huge.
It would seem as though when progressive whites made their one time appearance in the hope of being seen by other progressives, they won’t go back, and the chef’s project will depend upon blacks to support his business whose incomes won’t allow the to attend on a regular basis .
Which is why one chef is challenging the way people understand racial wealth disparity by charging white customers at his pop-up restaurant more than people of color.
SAARTJ is the brainchild of New Orleans-based chef Tunde Wey.
Anyone can dine there but white customers will face an $18 increase in their bill, compared to others.
Tunde is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, and he’s previously organized a nation-wide dinner series called ‘Blackness in America’.
His latest experiment comes from discovering that, according to a 2013 study, the median household income for Afro-Americans in New Orleans is 54% lower than for whites.
When his idea fails, send him back to Africa where he belongs.
