The Georgia lawsuit joins three others recently filed in North Carolina, Alabama and Virginia against the Norcross, Ga.-based company and its franchisees, who are accused of maintaining a pattern of discrimination and violating federal civil rights laws (search). The Plaintiffs in the cases allege that Servers used racial epithets, refused to wait on minority patrons, provided them with slow service and poor quality food while providing whites with prompt service and quality food. Wafflehouse spokesman Pat Warner has pointed out two previous lawsuits in South Carolina and North Carolina where both Juries found in favor of Wafflehouse to demonstrate that "Waffle House Inc. has no tolerance for discrimination in our restaurants, and we react swiftly and decisively if we find a violation of our anti-discrimination policies," .

Private information:

One of the restaurants sued is in Darien GA, my parents' home town.

Utter silliness: the manager of that Waffle House is BLACK. He's going to discriminate against black customers? What's up with that?

Wafflehouse provided them with slow service and poor quality food

And the tuxedo I bought at WalMart was ill-fitting in the shoulders.

I ate at this place called "maurice's" BBQ in NC (might have been SC, it was on my drive back north). They had tons of "slavery wasn't so bad" books and other stuff. Great food, but I was a bit taken aback at all the literature. Anyway, the place had about 5 black people sitting together eating. I thought maybe they were trying to get him to throw them out so they could sue him. I totally approved. The food was great - I highly recommend it (just once).

Next time you make a wisecrack about a typo in the headline, someone needs to quote the headline. Otherwise, once it gets corrected, there's no looking back. :-)

Backs Sue Wafflehouse ^

Wafflehouse here has added a new item to the menu: cholesterol IV for those who want to cut out the middle man.

The poor confused dears. What they don't understand is, waitresses at Waffle House speak in code. Have breakfast at a WH a couple times and you can pick it up, IE a waffle, egg over easy and a side of bacon is: "Dip it, flip it and a side of skin."
Its easy to see how this could be misunderstood...
