Interracial Couple in Georgia Upset Over Racial Slur on Parking Ticket
Sam and Candea Aarons, an interracial couple from Atlanta area, Georgia, are highly upset after they recently discovered an offensive racial slur written on their valet ticket after picking up their car.
They couple reportedly valet parked their car, and had dinner on New Year’s day at Spondivits restaurant in East Point, Georgia. After retrieving their vehicle and preparing to go home, they couldn’t help but notice a tag that was still attached to their set of keys. It read “jungle fever”.
Of course, the couple complained to the restaurant and the valet company. But rather than being apologized to, they were only offered a gift certificate for a free dinner. They turned it down.
“We have never been so blatantly described in such a blatantly appalling manner ever,” Candea Aarons said. “I shouldn’t have to feel this way. We had no idea that the valet was looking at us or thinking of us in such a manner.”
To make matters even worse, the parking attendant who wrote the message was Black.
The restaurant eventually released a statement saying that the employee had been fired, and that they “do not tolerate racism of any kind whatsoever.”
