You can call me a racist, a bigot, or anything else you can think of, but when I go into a Chinese restaurant I want to see Chinese people working there. I don’t want to see black people working there or Italian people working there or Mexican people working there, I want Chinese people working there, it makes the atmosphere much more authentic.
The reason I bring this up is because in New York City, which is run by a Communist Mayor, they have slapped a $5,000 fine on a Midtown Indian restaurant for trying to hire a server who is Indian, can you imagine that, what’s the world coming too? It seems that commission staffers have been trawling Craig’s list to ensnare unwary restaurant owners who violate the law for things like seeking a “waitress” instead of a “wait-person.”
It might be common sense that an Indian restaurant would try to hire a server familiar with its cuisine, but to the city’s enforcers, it was a glaring red flag. The law doesn’t allow ads that discriminate “based on national origin.” That is what you get from the Liberal-Progressive brain. There was no complaint from the public, there was no evidence of how many people viewed the posting, and there was no direct evidence that any qualified applicant was turned away, yet the Liberal-Progressives who run the city found it necessary to fine the restaurant owners $5,000.
When a person owns a business, they should be able to hire, fire and promote whoever they want and for whatever reason they want, after all, it is there business. If an owner wants to hire all woman, or all men, or all Peruvians that’s what they should be able to do without the government sticking its nose in.
I have said many times that I believe that all these anti-discrimination laws are unconstitutional, when the government tries to tell us what is fair for one group, they make it unfair to another group. In a free society, any person or group of persons has the right to associate with any other person or group of persons willing to associate with him or it on the basis of any standard and for any reason. And likewise, any person or group of persons has the right not to associate with any other person or group of persons on the basis of any standard and for any reason.
There is no doubt that common sense is a thing of the past in this country, but not being able to hire an Indian for an Indian restaurant is beyond belief. Even the fact that a restaurant owner can’t advertise for a waitress if that’s what he wants instead of waiters, is also beyond belief.
When will this insanity stop, when will we get common sense and freedom back in our country? When people have the balls to stand up against big government, that’s when. I think that too many people in this country have forgotten that it is we the people who are suppose to be in charge, not politicians. To many people have forgotten that this country is supposed to be a Government of the people, by the people, for the people.
