Not really similar. 7-11 is a private business operating on private property. Under an honest reading of the Constitution, they are perfectly free to throw people out for saying "thank you", if they want to.

On the other hand, this Taco Bell staffer sounds like she's figured out a surefire way to get rich. Provoke customers into sending racial epithets her way, and either get rich by suing them, or get rich by suing Taco Bell for firing her.

No doubt their marketing people told them that would "resonate" with their target audience...

The lawyers are circling the wagons, she'll sue taco Bell and win, he'll sur taco bell, and win, even the cops will probably sue Taco Bell and win. Why you might ask.
Deepest pockets always pay. It's the liberal court system.

it's never wise to trash out the people who are preparing your food
_____

that, sir, is an exceedingly wise comment.

Nothing (for me) beats the story of a friend, working at a steak restaurant in a beach resort, who brought a steak not cooked well enough back to the Asian chef/manager, who proceeded to remove his manhood from his trousers, slap the steak with it a few times, and threatened to fire the waiter if he did not return the steak as it was to the patron.

I've learned to appreciate slightly less than medium rare (my preference) steak.

Not to worry, as long as you refrain from using camel dung as soap and using goat urine for perfume they won't look at you twice.

"Amazing! It's hardly believable that you have a 7-11 clerk who would even know what a chalupa was."

Maybe he should have said "Chapati"?

Is the right to ridicule in the constitution? I think not.

You're preaching to the choir there Martin.

I don't eat anything that teenagers have a hand in making. There's just no way I'm taking the risks involved in having a pissed off 16 year old putting together my meal.

Just the idea makes me feel a little green around the gils.

Some people have about as much respect for the First Amendment as they do the Second Amendment.

Or the now non-existant Tenth.

I think THIS is ridiculous! You can be charged with ridicule now??

The sad thing is, I thought judges lately have been sentencing people to ridicule. Is it now wrong to sentence someone to wearing a billboard in public explaining their crime to their fellow citizens?

BUT, is everybody on this list prepared to accept that people get to say anything they want? I can think of lots of things that the far left says that I find abhorrent, that I suspect many on this list would like to stop.

And you call yourself a rabid libertarian?

"Actions are criminal, not insults."

According to the article, the woman cursed and banged on the window. That's enough in many jurisdictions for a breach-of-peace arrest, regardless of the race/ethnicity of the recipient. As for the charge of "ridicule on account of race ...", however, that sounds like political correctness run amok.

Byrd's supervisor told police that Byrd should not have been working the drive-through because he had gotten into a similar incident with another customer, the warrant states.

Perhaps Byrd should have been fired the frist time, then this one wouldn't have happened. What ever happened to "the customer is always right?" I think I'd be going to Taco Bell's parent company over this.

I was beginning to think this article is bogus, because there's no way a state could actually make this illegal, but in fact, here it is, in black and white:

"Sec. 53-37. Ridicule on account of race, creed or color. Any person who, by his advertisement, ridicules or holds up to contempt any person or class of persons, on account of the creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race of such person or class of persons, shall be fined not more than fifty dollars or imprisoned not more than thirty days or both.

I really want ot ridicule what you just said but I am not sure I am protected under the cover of the 1st what-evermendent.

Jennifer Farrelly, 19, of East Windsor, has been charged with ridicule on account of race, creed or color and second-degree breach of peace.

"ridicule on account of race, creed or color and second degree breach of peace"?

HUH?

Most rap music falls into this category...especially the breach of peace part.
