black people dont tip

It’s just true. Black people don’t tip.

I swear. When I first started waiting tables, I heard about how black people don’t tip. I didn’t believe it until I experienced it for myself. I have waited tables at three different restaurants in the past few years and it’s the same at each place. Black people don’t tip.

It doesn’t matter if you’re white or black or any other color, you’re most likely not getting a good tip. most often, I see $1 per person. If it’s a 4 top and the bill is $100, the tip will be $4. That’s accurate unless two of the people are children, then you’re getting $2 tip.

Because I give everyone a fair chance, this still hurts every time. Sometimes the table will be as sweet as can be, then tipped me the standard $1/person. I don’t see how something is racist if it’s true. Ask black people who wait tables. If they’re honest, they’ll tell you they know this to be true as well.

I’d just like to know why black people don’t tip. If you’re black, and you don’t tip, why not leave a comment on here.

P.S. I like The site.
P.P.S. This happened as recently as yesterday. We have an all you can eat rib special….the worst promotion ever. I will run back and forth for a table, refilling sweet tea and lemonade for an hour, even 2, as well as running plates of food, extra napkins, and dirty dishes, and still get no tip or a $1/person.

    Surprised there’s not more indignant ‘Not all…’ comments (even though nobody ever said ‘all’) or anecdotal stories, though I do see a few. I never get when people do that, they use themselves as an example-just because something is true for them doesn’t mean it’s true for the majority. Where I live, restaurants that have primarily black customers usually a.)have an EXTREMELY high turnover rate for staff, and b.)often times eventually just close down. That’s not my opinion either, that’s just what happens. Though there are a few places that fare a bit better, & those are places where they’ll have a required gratuity added into the bill.

    NBA AllStar weekend is every server/bartenders living hell. There is a reason why I request off Essence Festival and Bayou Classic. So many walk-outs, so much attitude, yes there are a few saving graces but it’s few and far between. I try to keep my cool but after getting stiffed time and time again and running my ass off, one just tends to give up.

    And drink.

    A lot.

    I don’t like being racist, I hate it, it hurts, but after so many years in the industry you learn a few things. African Americans, Teenagers, and bulk majority of foreigners just don’t tip, but even the foreigners will if you let them in that you only make tops 4 bucks an hour.

    I drive a cab and just today I picked up a black man who wanted to get to a job interview. He said he only had $7 but that he was told on the phone it would be more like $8 or 9 so I told him I’d take him as far as $7 would get him. Along the way we saw his “uncle” and he wanted me to pull over so he could get a couple of more dollars from him. When he got back in the cab he complained that the meter was still running and I told him “time is money”. He continued to constantly whine about the fare and I pulled over when the meter hit $7 and the entire way he had whined about not having any money or a job for four months and how he needed to get to this interview but never seeing how much of an idiot he was for waiting until the last possible minute to arrange transportation for his precious interview. He then said that he shouldn’t have even taken the cab if he couldn’t get to his interview and I said, “maybe you shouldn’t have called a cab then” and the douche got self-righteous with me and said I shouldn’t talk to him like a child because he’s a 39 year-old man and blah blah blah whine whine whine. He paid with $4.25 in coupons that he got for free and two one dollar bills and some change for a total of $7 and parted by saying it wasn’t his fault he had black skin and nappy hair, that was god’s doing. WTF does that have to do with anything?!

      It’s called the race card. Black people pull it all the time. They don’t need make any sense when they do that.

      As a manager of a transportation company, part of which is standard taxi service, I feel where you’re coming from.

      Is it allowed in your city or cab company to ask for an estimated fare at the beginning of the trip? In the city I live in, they’re allowed to do that. I had a driver ask me up front last month-we were going a bit farther, so I totally understood. If a person got offended, it’s probably cause they don’t have the money!

        It’s common to get an estimate. Chalmette Taxi receives these questions often. The best the dispatcher or driver can do is estimate the mileage and guess what the traffic will be like. An experienced taxi cab driver or taxi dispatcher can come pretty close to what the fare should be.

    There is no specific reason some black people don’t tip. They are all individuals and have their own seperate reasons for not tipping. Personally I always tip 20% plus 2 dollars at crap chain restaurants, and 35% at fine dining establishments. I will also note I did have 3 roommates in college who were servers, who would always complain about blacks not tipping, and ask me whats wrong with my people lol. Also had 2 girlfriends who were servers and told me black people don’t tip, so I felt servers pain a little bit more than your average black person. I have left a “0″ tip on a couple occasions though for real crappy service, one guy was snappy and threw a straw at my gf when she asked for one, and they other guy was sitting in my seat when I went to the bathroom hitting on my gf haha, so yea no tip for that guy and I leave with the girl lol. In closing if was you I would give them all the outstanding service you would give other patrons, because you never know who has money and doesn’t, I mean with how much you guys get paid hourly can you really risk losing out on any potential money, just because you want to sterotype a whole race.

      Well, we’re all very proud of you for being a decent human being. No one with any sense will say that black people don’t EVER tip. What is the consensus is that black people don’t tip as well or as often as they should (in American Culture).

        Yes black people tip. But the tip is so low it’s downright insulting. And the way taxes on tips work, you end up PAYING to wait on them if it falls below a certain percentage of the check. And I’m really sorry but it almost ALWAYS does. And they will run you ragged.

    I don’t know if that is exactly true…I believe its just a matter of luck. I just started as a waitress for the first time in my life in a predominantly black area. Yesterday two black ladies had a couple salads, their bill was about 15 dollars and I could not believe the tip they left me. At first I thought it was a five and some singles, which already had made me happy, but when I started to unfold five after five and singles too, it turned out to be 20 dollars!! Even the owner did not believe me till I showed it to him. On the other hand…I waited on three other tables, all blacks and was left a total of five dollars, One lady did not leave me ANYTHING, and I was very polite and very efficient. I know that a 20 dollar tip is probably not going to ever happen again, but I believe that if I am giving you great service I at least deserve a 2 dollar tip. Leaving nothing is just plain tacky, whether you are black OR white

      It’s not luck. When you’re an experienced server, you can gather enough data to make assumptions based on statistics. In a restaurant full of black people, you’re lucky if you get a table who tips well and has manners.

    I’m a valet and it’s the same in this business. They never tip!! There is this one black lady who asks us to pull up her car and warm it up and never gives us a damn dollar or even says thank you. She even had the balls to complain to the hotel one morning that we didn’t warm it up long enough. She had us go run and get thinks out of her car like a salad and Gatorade and bring it up to her room. Still not a damn dollar. Things like that just piss me off. I hate the entitlement. Black people are going to make it where no one wants to serve them and
    Places just start banning them
