A recap of the "Facts"

I find it interesting and very telling that so many of the moms here are completely ignoring the facts and jumping to the "racism" claim.

Let's break it down a little bit here.

This is a black owned business that many of the group were regulars at. Sounds like they liked this place and hadn't had any problems with the staff in the past if they continued to go there.

According to the FB page, this night, there was some sort of altercation between the complainer and someone in the group. Supposedly a foot being steeped on and words exchanged.

The group waited to be seated and the Manager let them stay and wait to be seated even after the complaint was made, but the complainer didn't feel comfortable after the incident and the manager didn't want to seat them all in the same area. I have to assume this was to avoid any further altercations. Seems reasonable.

The Manager was still planning to seat the group but explained that there was a problem and by his own admission, this is when the guy in the interview says he and the group reacted and began questioning and videoing the manager

AND... This is when they were asked to leave. When they whipped out a camera and got in the managers face. Not before.
