Georgia Couple Shocked Over Racial Slur on Valet Ticket
ABC News ^ | Jan 4, 2014 | Gillian Mohney

Posted on 01/05/2014 8:49:58 AM PST by TexasCajun

A Georgia couple was shocked and disgusted to find a racial slur scrawled on a valet ticket after a night out at a local restaurant.

After Candea and Sam Aarons had dinner at the Spondivits restaurant in East Point, Ga., on New Year’s Day, they found that the valet tag still affixed to their key chain had the phrase “jungle fever” written on one side.

The phrase is a racial slur for an interracial couple.

Strange! ...well, maybe not.

ABC News doesn't tell it's readers the race of the valet.

Reading the comments, the omission works as most posters assume the Valet to be White, of course.

Leave it to the UK's Daily Mail to give us the details:

The unnamed man, who was described by the Aarons as black, has since been fired.

My my my, how interesting

And here ABC “News” is more interested in spreading false impressions rather than reporting on important, substantive real news.

If things like this and the “White Hispanic” et al fiasco don’t convince your (few) remaining acquaintances that the msm is exceptionally biased, then they truly are LIV.

99% of whites don’t know what that means; 99% chance valet or writer was black. As Rush says, trust me in this.

As a conservative American and TEA Party member, the “media” likes to tell me that I’m a racist. Until I read this article, if someone had used the term “Jungle Fever” with me I would have thought they were referring to the “B” side of the Tornadoes 1963 hit, “Telstar”. I guess I make a lousy “racist”. Who comes up with this crap?

I know a lot of black guys who don’t like it when white guys date or marry black women. Not surprised the valet was black.

I know an interracial couple. She complains about being treated terribly. When pressed, I find out it’s the Black women who are the worst bout giving them a hard time.

The couple should be asked what the valet should have put down on that card to identify themselves.

No matter what was put down they would have taken offense.

It's only worthy of national attention if you can deceive your readers to believe this was White Racism.

And of course the couple isn't satisfied with an apology.

Although the man has lost his job, Candea thinks it is not enough. The couple are now seeking the aid of attorneys.

Years ago, I went to a Boston Market with my girlfriend (who was black), and I could hear the employees (all black) joking about my "jungle fever". They were t even remotely discreet about it.

The point being that the expression "jungle fever" is a) not a "racial slur" and b) predominantly known to, and used by, black people.

Not surprised then, that the valet in this case was black.

Jungle Fever = “you can’t possibly love that person, it can only be that you are together for the taboo thrill of sex with a person of another race...especially black and white”

Yes, a slur and insulting.

Like I said, most whites don’t know what it means, however, blacks are usually the ones who use the term - and derogatorily.

Because the MSM / Government Media complex has to keep the sheeple distracted since it no longer covers actual news like the Obamacare debacle, the IRS scandal, or the NSA abuse of power.

We’re in the midst of a “bigoted message scrawled on receipts” repeat.

Remember the black church arson hoax from the 1990’s? Then it was the “bigoted message scrawled on walls in colleges” scam. I guess the racists and bigots have retreated to writing things on scraps of paper now.

As it has been pointed out, since the race of the valet was not mentioned, it is almost certainly black. However, the media won’t let that get in the way of another blame whitey frenzy.

That’s because we racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, etc. folk in flyover country aren’t behaving in accordance with the Left’s stereotypes, and nothing must be allowed to stop the advancement of the narrative.

(I think the whole story is baloney, too.)

I’m more shocked that Spondivits has valet service.

That was my first thought as well. I remember sitting at the bar there once sharing a bucket of crab legs with a friend when all of a sudden I see a guy walking out with a Mossberg shotgun in his hands. Three minutes later, three East Point policemen rush in. I didn't know the details, but I knew where I was and what to expect, so I went back to eating my crab legs.

If I was a criminal in the ATL, the last police dept I would want to face is East Point.
