NOLA restaurant asks whites to pay more
Muh racial pay gap



As part of a month-long "social experiment," a pop-up restaurant in New Orleans is asking white customers to pay extra for their meal in the name of wealth redistribution.

According to Civil Eats, the pop-up called Saartj gives white customers — and only white customers — the option to pay "$12 for lunch or the suggested price of $30" while black customers are "charged $12 and also given the option to collect the $18 paid by a white patron as a way to redistribute wealth."

Restaurant creator Tunde Wey says that his project seeks to educate patrons on the "nation's racial wealth gap," using statistics, according to Civil Eats' coverage from an EPI study that looks at income distribution broadly, similar to the debunked 22-cent "gender pay gap" statistic.

Hahaha. Things like this will be made law in the future. The courts will uphold it too.

Their two menu items don’t really appeal to me.
But I wish them luck with their venture.

And don't even justify the 12 dollar price point let alone 30

LOL at the idea of Anthony Davis netting $6 and a free lunch while a white waiter pays $30

Would this be considered price discrimination of a "public accommodation" under the Civil Rights Act?

I keep hearing over and over that since I am a white male, I should be rich. But I'm not. Maybe I'm secretly black?

I'd like to see Gordon Ramsay come and shite on this place.

They say that white families have 10 times the average net wealth of black families.

But ten times $10,000 is only $100,000. That’s not “wealthy” either.

It seems to me that this place is a tax shelter at best, and a money laundromat at worst. There is no way you can open a restaurant in the food capital of the world, serving only those two menu items, and expect to be successful.
