    Posted by on Oct 17th, 2011

    A Hooters restaurant in Johannesburg has been hit with a R1 million claim from two customers who say they were issued with a bill that had  “DARKIES”  written next to customer name.

    Here’s the till slip.

    Ya…Charmaine is definitely not getting a raise any time soon.

    “The Fourways Hooters has been hauled in front of the Equality Court after they issued a bill emblazoned with the word “darkies” to three customers.

    Complainants Steve Mweene and Felix Chalwe are claiming damages of R500 000 each from Hooters and a written unconditional apology. ” [News24]

    The Hooters chain is reknowned worldwide for employing young attractive waitresses that are scantily dressed with tight tops that emphasise the breasts. This SA branch may not have gotten the memo.

    I call my darkie friends “darkies” all the time, and they have no problem with it…then again, I don’t have a bunch of money they can make a quick buck off of.

    Plus, I bet if the waitress’ name was Thandi, they wouldn’t have made an issue.

    It’s time we all get over this “racial” crap….it’s old already.

    @Chago, you just said it yourself. They’re your friends. If friends call eachother bitches, skanks or whatever its based on comfort and mutual understanding on the connotations, context of the word and eachother. If a total stranger especially someone who is being paid to serve you had to call you a bitch or a slut etc people would definitely have a problem with it.

    I don’t know what people are going on about! Its really not a bad thing when being called a “darkie”.. I mean, then as Chago said, they shouldn’t call us “boertjies” coz not all “white” people are afrikaans.. I like different race groups.. I’m friends with all the different race groups! Yes I agree with Shana.. If its a total stranger, don’t call them names! Something will go wrong! Anyway! I just think we need to grow up as South Africans and stop being so immature about stupid names! Really!
