Please stop playing the race card
Dear SJW’s: Please stop playing the race card!
Below is a “plea” (or better yet a desperate cry for attention) from a local area resident. She had some kind of verbal interaction at a cheap hair salon over at Newport Mall in Jersey City recently. She has since organized a “silent march” this weekend to protest what she is claiming was a “racist” incident. See our commentary afterward.
Letting businesses run as they openly support racism
“ALL LIVES MATTER”
Silent March Planned for Newport Centre Mall, Jersey City, NJ 07302 as a result of racist remarks made at one of the salons that they lease space to called V & C Image Hair Salon, located at 30 Mall Drive, Suite 117 (1st floor).
After a disagreement over the salons hidden prices (different from what they advertise), V & C Image Hair Salon staff said to me “Go back to your country if you can’t pay”, “Get out of here, find another salon and go complain somewhere else”, “If you can’t pay, go back to your cheap country. I will call security to throw you out”.
After almost ten minutes of harassment, threats and racist remarks, we are joining on Saturday, November 19th from 11-12pm to fight against racism. The gathering/walk will begin in front entrance of the Newport Centre mall on Washington Street (across from Newport PATH station), through the mall and in front of V&C Image Hair Salon.
Racism is not acceptable within our community. I live here, support the community and pay my due diligence taxes. There has been no apology or acknowledgment received from V & C Image Hair Salon, and no resolution from the Newport Centre Mall, even after an official complaint has been submitted to both parties.
Seriously? How is that racism? Could have been much worse!
For starters – this is only one side of the story. Nagging, cheapskate customers come in ALL SHAPES AND SIZES – FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE. I invite V & C Image Hair Salon to tell their side of the story.
And let’s analyze the allegedly “racist” remarks:
- “Scram. Find another salon” – Yeah, if you don’t want troublemakers – you ask them to leave. Same thing for a blubbering drunk in a tavern. Not racist.
- “Go back to your cheap country” – Sure, they mentioned a “country,” but nothing specific. It might have been a bit stereotypical – but everyone here has some kind of stereotypical judgments – and they are usually based on real-world experiences. The offended customer was obviously looking to get away with paying less than displayed – or failed to understand what many coupons indicate via fine print. Or that they just didn’t understand ENGLISH? Note they included two sentences that were practically identical. Lame attempt at boosting “evidence.”
I mean c’mon, already! Nothing there indicated racists remarks in my opinion. And it could have been much worse. Some people say things like “Drop Dead!” (wishing harm), or “Go to Hell, you fuck-face!”
But you can’t play any “social justice warrior” card with a direct personal insult. Wouldn’t get the “press” now would it?
Back in the day – if you had what you deemed an unpleasant experience with a business establishment, you’d stop patronizing them. Perhaps shared your story with a couple friends.
Today? If things don’t go perfectly your way – you have to pull out all stops, “call the troops!” organize protests and spend dedicated countless hours over a stupid disagreement.
And shit, if she was only harassed for a whopping 10 minutes (probably less), why not “be equal” and make the protest the same amount of time? Talk about inequality, bitch.
In all, this is a complete waste of time and effort. What are they going to gain?
In my book – they have a lot more to lose than to gain. “Hey Bob, here comes that trouble-making bitch again. Raise the prices!” Time for these people to get a frickin’ life. Learn a skill. Open your own salon. And please shut the F up and stop playing the race card NOW!
