How am i elitist?
When you are in a car in full of Americans and every single one of them is blaming America's ills on the 'Niggers' and 'Spics' you tend to come to the conclusion that the U.S. may, just may still have a problem with racism.
I am also aware of Black and Hispanic racism toward the American 'White' population.
The point i am making is that racism is not only an American problem, as these British nobs have shown.
The lawsuit seeks more than $75,000 (£49,000) in compensation for Tranchant, who was "humiliated, embarrassed, frightened, intimidated, subject to undeserved shame and suffered severe emotional distress". No date has been set for a hearing. The hotel has 20 days from when the lawsuit was filed on Tuesday to submit a formal response.
A British family has been banned from staying at a chain of luxury hotels after allegedly requesting not to be served by "people of colour" at a Florida resort.

The U.S. population is regularly accused of containing a fair few racists. Having visited several times, i think this is true to some extent.
But let us not forget you can find a racist anywhere. These British wankers also represent a growing minority in my country.
Hopefully as they were staying in the 5 Star Ritz they were just rich bastards and not a representation of the majority of the British people.
Apparently the staff or staff member logged the request on the computer system. Adding to this, 9 members of staff were aware of this request from the Morgan family.

I think people have the right to be racist. And if they dont want to be served by a black waiter, hell give them a white waiter. Whats the issue here? Like someone stated already he wasnt fired he just... well changed tables.
If someone doesnt like something I dont have the right to force it upon them if they dont like it or dont want it.
Why is everyone shocked? Why are tolerants intolerant with the intolerants? Shouldnt you tolerate intolerance? Isnt that what your bs hypocrisy tells you to say, to do, and how to behave? We're all equals and crap like that? Tolerate everything... dont say this, dont say that, dont point the guy's color, dont laugh because hes a freakin midget, dont point cause its ugly, swallow 2 guys kissing in the public park in front of your 7 year old son, etc etc?
People CAN be racist. They can be homophobes, xenophobes, nazis, communists, taoists, marxists, atheists, christians, muslims, they can worship the holy white toilet seat or the holy cow, I dont care... its in their right to do so.
Theres a lot of things I dont tolerate... so what? You hate me because I'm different, I hate you because yer all the same. Soon with this "we're all equal" crap, the whole planet will be gray. Humanity's biggest asset its diversity.

well that is sad, very sad, EVERY nation has racism most more than the white ones do and we should feel bad because we are the same color as people who built the biggest and best empire? i don`t think so. no guilt here just pride my ancestors stopped piracy, slavery(for a time) and built the free world. no need to thank us just keep telling us how evil we are.
