Proof Bartender's Racist Rant Put On Blast

Photobucket

Prepare to get ill.

This Facebook exchange below began with a bartender named Jessica Harr from Proof nightclub in the Gold Coast.

She was fired for her horribly threatening and racist comments, but it makes you wonder about the people they're hiring over there. In fact, several high-profile African-American nightclub promoters have confirmed that they've had problems with this venue in the past.

UPDATE: Proof owner Mike Bloem, who waited almost 24 hours to respond to the situation, had this to say about the incident: "Proof would like to confirm its belief in equality, fairness and tolerance to all our friends and partners. Sadly, on occasion, we are all exposed to ignorance and racism. We believe that by continuing to be true to our ideals and leading through our actions that each of us can be an agent for positive change."

As far as Jessica Harr's First Amendment rights on Facebook? I spoke with John V. Moore, the marketing communication consultant and Adjunct Faculty at Columbia College Chicago, and he had this to say:

"Many of Ms. (Harr)'s friends and defenders will feel that she is just exercising her First Amendment rights, but I would like to disabuse them of the notion that exercising those rights should protect her from losing her job or dealing with a backlash from those she has offended. The First Amendment only prohibits the government from making a law that would impede her freedom of speech. She exercised that freedom, which is her right, and if her employer wishes to fire her or people wish to complain they are within their rights as well."

wow. just wow. Can't believe these people think its ok to talk about someone else like that.

Proof does not condone any of this behavior and it will not be tolerated. She is no longer with our establishment.

Never visiting that place. UNACCEPTABLE. Hate speech is NOT covered under freedom of speech people!

Interesting because my job planned on having a happy hour there soon... seeing as how there are plenty black people on staff maybe we will reconsider and go to a classier establishment!

Disgraceful...I guess she dislikes the 1% of African she has in her!

We're all from the motherland Jessica!

Samantha McCoy said...

Someone should remind her that HER people took AFRICANS from their land and brought them over here! I don't know how or when blacks have been considered the bad ones when whites used to have pick-a-n*gg*rs..eating lunch while a slave is hung in front of them..among other things..many things..

If you can't say this ish to people's faces, insults and threats mean nada..she isn't as dumb as she appears..she knew not to say this ish in front of any of those black people she hates lol

I knew this place was on some racist mess.

I pray for peace~ When will we see that we are all ONE people and One Color there is no black or white just look into the mirror there is just different shades of color. We just have white ways of thinking and black ways of thinking! What do you think that means????? We will over come when there is just the HUMAN way of thinking! (SHE IS SICK)!

Renae said...

This is just unacceptable. Good for you Audarshia for calling this out--we all need to stand up and say this isn't right! Hard to believe some people can have so much hatred against others...it's toxic. I'm praying for her that she opens her eyes and has a change of heart. There should be no room in our society for this kind of racism. And, based on the Facebook comment I saw, I'm waiting to see Proof's official statement today. They do need to address this publicly.

Anonymous said...

Meh who cares? There's always going to be people who have these feelings and yes it's unacceptable but it's just never going to change. I don't think it's fair to classify her racist rant and feelings as a representation of Proof because she is just an individual and doesn't hold any baring to the club besides that she [was] a bartender there. An organization like that shouldn't be held responsible for a racist spew from a rogue employee. Nevertheless, FB is not the appropriate venue to vent your deep seeded hate, once it's out there, it's out there and I'm sure she understands that now; or at least I hope

Well we see who the ignorant ones really are..........That's why I think its funny not offensive. LMAO. Dumbasses. Now YOU'RE unemployed while I make twice as much as you WERE making as a filthy ass bartender. Lmao. Maybe if you had a job that required an education you would actually get to deal with intelligent people.....just a thought.

So let me get this straight. One of her commenters, Mr. Cuthbertson, in his Facebook photos, is holding his obviously mixed race nephew. Dude, do that kid a favor and stay out of his life. Way to go Uncle Andy!

Never heard of the place before today and it looks like it caters to an extremely douchey class of people anyhow. Not surprised.

I just got sick to my stomach, all of these ignorant racists need to be outed and fired, they are the cancer of society.

You should be careful when expressing your "thoughts"..
A lot of bartenders have the job as a way to pay for their education.
Of course Ms. Elizabeth is not the smartest person, but you're not showing much intelligence by putting down an entire work force.
If we all(I am a Beverage Manager/Bartender/Sommelier) decided tomorrow to work in another industry, what would you do? No where to go for dinner/drinks? Do not let yourself be brainwashed into thinking your education/job puts you above ANYONE! Jessica may be a disgusting racist, but you are a disgusting CLASSIST! Do us in the service industry a favor and STAY HOME!! We don't need you or your huge amounts of money!
By the way..who signs your paychecks? No one works for free in this world. Think before you speak.

Your first sentence is completely misleading. I'm not saying white people didn't expedite the slave trade in America, but the slave trade to the states was started by black Africans. History shows that slavery, in it's truest definition or indentured servitude, was around for a long, long time before white America. In fact, most slave traders/owners held as slaves their own, indigenous people, because that's who they had access to. I know it's easy to say that white people started the slave trade of black people in America, but in fact it was the black Africans and those in the Caribbean that started the slave trade in America.

I am a African American male that has hung out with a VIP manager from Proof at mixed & African American partys on a few occasions and she has always treated me with respect. I guess i'm trying to say dont blame the entire staff for the stupid racist comments of 1 idiot. I have been exposed to ignorant racist members of Chicagos night life industry at certain establishments but i have also met non blacks that i am proud to call my friend during my years of partying

Time out. Let's not blame Proof for such ignorance. This was not on Proof's facebook page nor was it said to someone inside the club. Some slob said it on her own personal page that USED to work there.

I agree.

Her sheer ignorance has nothing to do with her profession. People in the service industry do an awesome job, and many are well educated.

Hell, there are politicians, doctors and attorneys who have the same sentiments as this idiot. To me, they are just as ignorant.

This is Andy Cuthbertson and I just want to apologize for my comments that I wrote on her page.My intentions wasnt to get involved as soon as she started dropping some big racial slurs,but my explanation is this,I have a nephew and many many close african american friends and family members who are threatened by other african americans.My sisters babies daddy(hes a drug dealer gang member)was trying to kill my sister and my family.I had to sit outside daily waiting for him and his buds to show up with guns.They never came but they put my whole family in jeapordy.People dont realize something,is that some out there are putting a really bad taste in the race itself.I have to take a train and bus at midnight downtown where I see people holding knives and what ive seen before guns..I love people who are nice to me,i wasnt attacking an entire race i was attacking those who are in bad taste with me.I deeply and widely apologize for if anyone took offense to this,but this was to particular people with me saying how id like to beat some people up myself and how i agreed that alot of the african americans out there are making others look really bad.I do hope people will accept my apology.I do know that her comments was fierce and simply outrageous to a full extent.Im very sorry though to those who took offense,there was no support on her disliking the entire race,was more towards the individuals.Im sorry everyone,just wanted to give everyone my input.Im sure im gonna get bashed about it but i was saying some of the comments for a very good reason.Not towarsds everyone out there whos an african american.If you wish to message me or anything heres my email wearanter@gmail.com

312 Dining Diva said...

Andy, while we appreciate your apology, you're still making excuses for your comments, which were truly in bad taste.

You should have just said "I'm sorry for offending EVERYONE" and left it at that.

I truly hope you--and the rest of the racist ranters on that page--have learned something from this. This is going to haunt you all for a long time to come . . .

Proof is a great place, I frequent there and have never seen any unfair treatment of their patrons! You cannot blame the establishment for an occasional bad person who made the comments at home and not work! She is obviously a bad person who karma will surely visit! Blaming Proof is like NFL for Michael Vicks animal abuse scandal! Don't be ignorant yourself!

Anonymous said...

No excuse about it,this isnt towards the world of african americans.This is to specific people out there.I am sorry for offending everyone but this wasnt towards the entire race.I have people who are african americans who have tried to kill my family.I have every right to say that I dont like alot of them.Not a racist bastard like she was i wasnt calling people the n word or anything.Like i said I have friends and family whos part of the african american community.I do cherity work for some of those communities.I dont appreciate those who are killing drug dealing making a bad name for everybody else out there.Not sure what Jessica's deal was but mine is about those who are affecting my life and my family and workers and such.I dont appreciate those and i think im allowed to say that.Wouldnt you think at least?Hell ya I wanna kick some of their tush's for the things they do ex:killings and such.Something will haunt me if my nephew or someone that I know ends up dead bc of african americans that I know.Anyways Dining Diva this wasnt racist in any sort of way if you care to look through the eyes others instead of yourself.Read what I wrote and tell me that all of it is an excuse for ripping and tearing the culture and the race apart?I care and love the ones I call my brothers.Im a man of God and a very big christian.Im here to apologize and ask for forgiveness and give everyone an explanation.If you dont see what I see that's ok I understand I cant do anything about that.

I love that Andy was not only showing his racist views in his back & forth with Jessica, but commenting on what he believes to be a lack of intelligence by an entire race while in his post, he just about spelled every word - other than those of his name - wrong (not to mention the second grade grammar). (No offense to second graders).

Kristin said...

Appalling. It makes me sad to see that there are so many ignorant people on this earth. Senseless.

Peter Sobotka said...

@Andy
You threatened violence towards an entire race of people based on your limited interactions. Guess what? Apology or not, you've set yourself up to be identical all the KKK members, neo-Nazis, and other terrorists who go by any excuse to kill people who are different from them.

You have black friends? Relatives that aren't white? So did George Zimmerman and that didn't stop him from killing.

What is wrong with you that you think threatening to beat the shit out of people because they're black isn't racist? What you described exemplifies violent racism to the core.

You want to attack people who have hurt you? Fine. That's normal. Don't go around saying you want to beat up random members of that race. Hold the people who hurt you directly responsible.

It's like how I don't hate all white people, just specifically idiots like you who can't tell the difference between being a racist moron and being justifiably angry.

And would it kill you to learn proper English? God. You type like you're drunk. Are you drunk?

I'm sorry for what I wrote and realize that it was extremely wrongful of me.Im not a racist guy never will be never have been.If my comments come off like that than im sorry about that.

Looks like Chicago has at least one George Zimmerman in the making: someone who thinks relatives and friends who are black magically annul all their racism.

Funny thing, if you're not racist, you don't go around threatening to hurt people for their race.

But yeah, Andy Cuthbertson, not a racist, even though he likes to go around beating up blacks, because he has black friends.

No Peter i'm not drunk.This has been blown way out of proportion for the things that i've said.I said the things due to certain individuals that are currently in my life.That's all.This has been looked into way too far for what I wrote.So i'm leaving my comment at this.Apologize whether some people will accept it or not from the bottom of my heart!Im trying to talk about it and not hide from it all so please give me points for that for what Jessica and others has also said and got involved in.I was wrong with what I wrote.Take care everyone

Their FB comments were appalling. Period. End of story.

I have never heard of Proof but I don't believe that you can judge an establishment on one (past) employee's bad behavior. It appears that they dismissed her swiftly. If anything, they should be commended for that, not punished by boycotting them.

Wait a minute Andy, you said exactly this in response to all of the pure, ignorant hate that Jessica spat out: "Jess you just about summed up what I(sic) always felt". Wiggle all you like, it's like quicksand, you'll just sink faster.

Shawna Katie Bohn said...

As apalled as I am by the comments posted on facebook, I'm even more terrified that America is polarizing into a very racially fractured society. This is absolutely heartbreaking, for my own blended family and for each and every one of us.

Let's please all take a breath and try to use this situation as a catalyst for open communication and positive change.

Maybe we should all sit down to dinner together...

Anonymous said...

Andy, please don't fool yourself. The words you spoke, you spoke about your own nephew. You state that there are particular Blacks causing you grief. The better question that you might want to reflect on and ask your sister is why she not only involved herself with a drug dealing, gang banger but had a child with one. You might want to consider a bit of therapy to work out your clearly deep hate for my race, especially considering your nephew is one of us. I am going to say a prayer for you as you truly are in denial.

Angel Afterhours said...

I left my Facebook account open, and my friends went crazy on it. By liking statuses, posting stupid things on my wall, and making comments. I found out about Jessica's post through the notifications that came through my phone. As soon as I saw it, I deleted it, and blocked Jessica as a friend immediately. I then notified one of the managers at Proof, and they dealt with her swiftly, I in no way approve of racism. Being a Latino man, who was born and raised in Chicago (melting pot), has taught me the value of equality. My best friend, who is Kenyan, will truly vouch for that. I love my country, and everyone in it, no matter what nationality/gender/sexual preference.

It's funny that people only make it a huge deal when a white person makes a remark about another race, when everyone is some type of racist in thier own way. Also what does someones feelings about another race have to do with a place they work at?

Andy you are blaming a entire race because your sister dated a DRUG DEALER and he threatened your family, you should have blamed your sister for dating a man of his caliber and maybe your family would not have been placed in harms way white drug dealers also commit violent acts in case you didn't know.I was threatened with violence as a child by 3 white teenagers at Ford City Mall and know that i am 6'3 230 i dont blame your entire race for that incident. Regarding post that i have read about the intelligence level of bartenders in addition to hanging with a Proof VIP manager as i stated in a earlier post i know 2 bartenders that own their own clothing labels, my chiropractor worked as a bartender until his client base grew, i know a few that own rental real estate in middle or upper middle class neighborhoods and last year i met a bartender at a club i frequent that is a medical intern so stop the bartender bashing

Just wanted to clarify something:
Slavery has long existed throughout the ages. And yes, slavery existed in the African continent prior to the era of the Middle Passage. Yet, the African's idea of slavery was quite different as to how the European traders viewed it. The transaction required more than one group. As far as I know, the ships that brought the slaves were ran by Europeans.
In any case, it is very disappointing to see once again that we as a people have a long way to go. Chicago is a beautiful town, but lord does it have a ton of tension.

I am actually FB friends with this horrible excuse for a human being. I am also fb friends with all but one of the people in this conversation. Being mixed race I have encountered the BS on both ends of the stick. People as whole have lost it. If she wanted to rant like this why not create a private forum for it. Everyone is entitled to their own views. Just not in a public place. I feel like the guys went along with it because they see what they perceive as a hot chick and wanted a excuse to talk to her by any means necessary. I have actually been to a Angel Afterhours "Afterhours". There isn't a racist bone in that guys body. Someone probably did hack him. Jessica you should probably stay off your FB or at least change your name or disable peoples rights to post on your page. Issue a policy or retraction because things are not going to look so pretty for you. People are disgusted by your behavior. That convo has popped up all over the web. You need some major PR. I hope you are wealthy or have another job because this will haunt you.

Andy that's a cop out! I am a Black Man and years ago I was at a predominantly white club with TWO of my buddies. One of them accidentally stepped on a guy's foot AND Said EXCUSE me. The guy STILL pushed him and started some B.S. (i kept them from fighting in the club) and though we didn't start the mess or act out of control WE got kicked out. NOW while we were waiting outside for our third friend who we were seperated from (while he was off mingling) we were confronted by the guy from the club and about 30 to 40 people outside (No lie, that was even in the ppolice report, even though none of them were taken to jail... JUST US) I ended up getting hit and busted open on TWO places with a bat (Over 30 stitches) and my car was destroyed by the mob of people. I went straight from the hospital after being stitched up to jail where again NO one was locked up but my budddies and I. Now I could have been KILLED over that bullshyt! And I could also take that and say I don't like white ppl because of what they did to me and how they handled that BUT that's not who I am, and that's truthful to how I feel! That would be stupid to blame a whole race of people or DISLIKE MOST of a race of people over an INCIDENT whether it was fueled by biggotry or whatever! There are GOOD and BAD in ALL races. Whites are not exempt! There are White killers, Gangbangers, and dope dealers just like there are black ones, Asians, Latinos! We ALL eat, sleep, drink, bleed, piss, and shyt the same! The only difference is Looks! The DIFFERENCES are more so from person to person (of ALL Races) than they are actual different by races! (CULTURES are DiFFERENT) But we are ALL people! Me getting hit with a brick is NOT going to hurt any more or less than YOU getting hit with one... We both will PROBABLY bleed and MAY die. There are A$$holes in EVERY race! That's where the initial problems and issues should be... moreso with the A$$holes than a race of people. Like the A$$hole things you brothers and the young sister(s) were saying in those comments above. That mess was hurtful, ignorant, hateful and down right disrespectful and for what? That doesn't capture the essence of ANY Black Men or Women I know! It fits the bill of some A$$ES I know though of All colors! This isn't an attack on you either! Just sharing some wisdom so take it in love bruh! I hope you continue to grow as a PERSON and as a MAN and see that REAL MEN and WOMEN come in all shades of ALL RACES. The a$$holes are REALLy the Minority in the world (NOT the Minorities) They just kick up more dust and COMMAND more attention. Definitely think before you speak and are GROUPED with ANY IGNORANT brand of people spewing HATRED against ANY race as a whole. demons and devils don't have a color! The SPIRITS come in ALL forms, shapes, THOUGHTS and Races!! You should definitely be wise to thatas a young Christian man and realize we ARE ALL Brothers and Sisters! And EACH Person whatever color will be judged by their deeds and held accountable! However u try to put it you all are just feeding into RACISM and Ignorancce that keeps us ALL divided as a PEOPLE!! Peace to you!

Regardless of the fact that you might have beef with certain types of people (gangbangers etc.) no matter how much you feel you are entitled to saying whatever slanderous remarks you want about black people or anyone of a different race (because you are probably surrounded by other ignorant white ppl spewing out stereotypes and hate about black ppl while simultaneously calling each other the n word while listening to lil wayne in new era fitted caps), just know that the majority of society will look at you like an ignoramus and be lining up to tear you a new @$$h0Le :-D Can i get an amen?

I strongly agree! I personally think if Miss Dining Diva had a problem with what Jessica said, she should have exploited strictly just that and not the fact that she worked at Proof etc. If that's the case, maybe we should go to her school and put all over blogs and news that she's a "racist"and that she shouldn't be allowed to attend school because of her comments because racism is not condoned at her university. This was a big issue, but to take down an establishment with it where other people, NOT ONLY Jessica worked, was unfair to everybody. People who actually enjoyed coming to Proof and never had any problems before, ALL RACES, will now have second thoughts because you wanted to tell everybody that a "racist" worked there.

And let's stop crying about sad sappy stories about unfair racial treatments. Quite frankly, I'm exhausted with people playing the race card about their treatment in club environments, etc. We've all had bad experiences, I'm sure of this at EVERY establishment. How about we blame others, ourselves, or anything else besides "I got thrown out because I'm whatever race". Clubs are loud, there's a lot of miscommunication that can happen.

As for Angel Afterhours, you actually should have been fired along with Jessica for your comment and now you want to make excuses and sound like the noble guy who contacted managers so that they were aware of what was going on. Maybe you should have never said anything on that status at all. Grow up and stop making excuses. Just because you're latino does not excuse you from being a racist or the fact that your best friend is an African American or ANYTHING ELSE. You partook in that status, own up to it. You can't take back what you said.

Same goes for Andy. What's said is said. You can't apologize for what you said and say you didn't mean it because this blew up to be as big as it did. If this hadn't gone viral, you would've never taken back what you said! I'm almost SURE of that.

To sum it up, save all your sad sappy stories and breath of near death experiences because of your race. This is life and yeah what comes with it is shit. And SHIT HAPPENS.

Why is it ok for African Americans to call each other the "n" word, but when a white person says it, everyone starts dialing Jesse Jackson? I'm not racist one bit, BUT when there are words you don't want heard, don't use them yourselves. And EVERYONE needs to RELAX on the whole slavery situation. Africans WERE NOT THE ONLY race or nationality enslaved. Slavery has been around for Thousands upon THOUSANDS of years. So everyone needs to get off their high horse and get educated! Personally, I feel Miss Dining Diva is putting a young girl in jeopardy. Yes she said what she said, I'm sure there are MANY upon MANY days you cuss out other nationalities or a races, other than your own. If you say you never have, you should have been a nun, instead of a blogger. Shame on YOU Dining Diva. This could have been handled more maturely rather than posting it for it to go Viral. What did you achieve? More traffic on your lame blog? Congrats, If this girl gets injured because you wanted to be the "big bad wolf" it'll be on your conscious.

It's hilarious because she talks about people who can't get jobs, but I'm pretty sure she's going to have trouble getting one after potential future employers hear about this one.

So no one here works at bar? Sorry but anyone that does knows the frustration of dealing with some types of patrons. And there is a reason a stereotype is there. As dumb and rude as her remarks were, there is not one person on here that thinks a good proportion of black people act ok, don't tip, and act entitled while at the bar. If you ask any bartender who the best and worst clientele are, by race, an honest one will give you the truth. All the people on here aught to be reflecting on why that is. Can you think that there might be even the slightest cause for bar workers to be frustrated and blow up like this girl did?

312 Dining Diva said...

@ Anon 2:10pm: It is NOT okay for Jessica to threaten violence against another person in an open forum or any forum, for that matter. Also, or did you not read her entire rant, did you notice that she went way beyond the n-word. And it is NEVER okay to use that word either.

I cannot believe you have empathy for such a vile person.

Also, anyone claiming "not to be a racist" typically is. And if you don't like the content on 312DD, I advise you stay off.

Are you seriously this clueless? So if a group of white girls who are friends call each other "skanks" and "hoes" in either jest or camaraderie, does that give a man license to refer to any of those girls in the same manner?

Point is most white people in predominantly white clubs would prefer that traditional black people stay away. It's that way all over the country. I live in Atlanta and I'm a black male. My buddies chase white women and are oblivious to the subtle racism where it stands out like a sore thumb to me. I do frequent clubs with mixed races but only the only ones where I feel my presence is appreciated. Blue Martini is one of those places. None in Atlanta but Orlando and Scottsdale are prime examples. Bouncer told my friend his sandles were too casual then let a white cat in with track shoes. We are all educated, six figure earning, intelligent brothers, the kind white people love to have as friends. But these predominantly white clubs would still prefer that we take our business elsewhere. So I do. I go to black owned establishments most of the time. Jazz clubs, private cigar lounges or events promoted by respected blacks. I simpley don't go where I'm not wanted. I have no problem with that.

This hate speech and name calling however is pathetic, and shows who the actual ignorant person is...but i will say most blacks tip poorly, want half a gallon of liquor in a $3 happy hour LIT, and treat the general staff pretty bad...They are usually the ones being loud, being rude (having the ringtone full blast AT THE TABLE, being on the phone AT THE TABLE) and otherwise disrespectful to everyone in the establishment. Not all blacks act this way, but the majority do. It is what it is.

I think that racism is a result of fear and ignorance. Andy expressed some real fears that he has and maybe he hasn't had much education. I don't think it helps to say awful things about him. More of the same name calling that the original facebook post was about.
His apology wasn't perfect but I commend him for the effort. I hope Andy learns something from this experience and that people will show him some forgiveness.

I agree with your entire post. I'm black and hate people using the n word, including other black people. I think it is an emotionally charged word capable of generating a response, so people frequently use it. Andy, I don't know you, but you repeated attempts to make amends I can tell you sincerely regret your choice of words. I just hope that you realize the point people are trying to make is that you blame a group of people for the actions of a few. There are definitely bad people in every race, and I hope evolution eventually weeds them out of existence.

Lol you cannot be serious by stating black africans/caribbeans started the slave trade in america WHEN IN FACT, BLACKS AMERICANS/CARIBBEANS WERE BROUGHT HERE DURING THE TRADE. LOL. THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM HAS CLEARLY FAILED YOU!!!
I am pretty certain that you are familiar with a man named CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, who inadvertently stumpled upon america. That man took back with him some indigenous americans back to europe with him to display them to his queen. Some scholars attributes his actions as one of the many instances of the slave trade in AMerica.
Let me be clear here: slavery is an old institution (biblical references are an example ). White enslaved whites, blacks enslaved blacks, arabs enslaved HOWEVER, the europeans settlers turned the practice into a INHUMANE DEBAUCHERY.
PLEASE, EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE TOPIC INSTEAD OF SPEWING B.S. .

I've seen good servers and even managers being disrespected by black customers and from time to time walk out on their bill and try and get stuff for free. Why can't every one no matter what race you are be good and honest when dineing out and if you get good service, leave a good tip. The enonomy is not a way to get out of paying your tab or leave a good tip if receive good service. Jess right on!

Social media is a good way to have some of the most unduly ignorant statements follow you around for the rest of your life. One of the most interesting things I find about this situation is that in an attempt to clear their names, two individuals identifying themselves as "Andy" and "Angel Afterhours" have only made themselves look even more ignorant and foolish. First, "Andy" claims he is in no way racist. Yet, if you go back and read the screen shot if the conversation, he's the first person to respond by saying "porch monkeys?" yeah, that sounds reasonable and balanced. Use a racial slur to support claims of not being racist.
Second, "Angel Afterhours" who clearly was involved in the fray states on this site that he is a "Latino man" born in raised in "Chicago (melting pot)". Ummmmm what??? Anyone who knows anything about Chicago knows it is NOT a melting pot. Chicago is one of the most segregated cities in America with a long history of racial strife.

I don't know whether to be mad at this ignorance or sadden by it. But let me address something first. The comments that blacks are the worse tippers, I can agree. Some are bad tippers. I am a black woman and have been out with associates and have actually gotten into an argument about tipping. My argument had always been the food was good and the service was good. So I tip. Always.And it goes both ways, I have been given horrible service and I still tip. I know that there is an assumption based on my skin color that I won't tip. So each time I go out I make sure to. Trying to change perceptions one cocktail at a time.
Now about this rant by this person and the posts giving her an internet hi five, this is beyond ridiculous. I swear sometimes I forget this is 2012. I could have swore we all originated from Africa. We are all so mixed its ridiculous. America wasnt called the Melting Pot for nothing. By the way, I recently had my blood analyzed to trace my ancestory. Guess what? 20% Caucasion, 60% African, 15% Irish, 5% Polynesian. And racism still exist? SMH

Why is it ok for African Americans to call each other the "n" word, but when a white person says it, everyone starts dialing Jesse Jackson?

"Who is dialing jessie jackson, also just because somebody jumps off a bridge doesn't mean you need to follow correct?"

I'm not racist one bit, BUT when there are words you don't want heard, don't use them yourselves.

"umm again please see my first response LMAO"

And EVERYONE needs to RELAX on the whole slavery situation. Africans WERE NOT THE ONLY race or nationality enslaved. Slavery has been around for Thousands upon THOUSANDS of years.

"Absolutely and europeans did enslave other europeans however when they came to america they were free same can't be said about africans who came to america."

So everyone needs to get off their high horse and get educated! Personally, I feel Miss Dining Diva is putting a young girl in jeopardy.

"First of all she represents a company and in the corporate world anything you say is a liability especially racial and religious rants. Proof can not afford to lose to the competition because of a stupid girl and her f-tarded comments."

Yes she said what she said, I'm sure there are MANY upon MANY days you cuss out other nationalities or a races, other than your own. If you say you never have, you should have been a nun, instead of a blogger. Shame on YOU Dining Diva. This could have been handled more maturely rather than posting it for it to go Viral. What did you achieve? More traffic on your lame blog? Congrats, If this girl gets injured because you wanted to be the "big bad wolf" it'll be on your conscious.

"Well nothing you say is sacred and the stupidest thing she could have done was mader her boss her friend, in the corporate world you have no friends especially in management. SHe got set up and her dumb behind played right into it."

Anonymous said...

So glad she was fired... as a mixed race server, I have something to add if her rant was initially about tipping.

To white bartenders/servers/management: Yes, some black people don't tip at all or tip under 15%, not because they're racist, but because some don't know better or don't know etiquette. Please re-think your "I would never hire them" stance as many of my black friends in the service industry suffer for job discrimination. Guess what, the black patrons that don't tip you, don't tip black bartenders/servers either. We all suffer serving anyone with poor tip etiquette. The racist name calling is unnecessary and invites bad karma.

To black patrons:
Please remember not every white/non-black bartender is racist. Standard pours are 1 to 1.5 oz. per drink. No, the bartender can't give you more liquor without charging for a double. House/club rules apply. Please tip 18-20% minimum. Order your alcohol with a 'splash' of coke, soda, mixer to taste more alcohol. Suspect bad service/racism? Then resolve it with management. Thank you

Here is a humorous youtube video from a black bartender re: tips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MFj5X54Ew4

Will she find another job? Sure, this is Chicago, she's white and blond and unfortunately many downtown and north-side establishments share her views.

Mr. Cuthbertson, not only did you condemn an entire race of people, you threatened physical violence based solely on race and what you deem to be unappealing characteristics of the race. Do you realize that not only could your comments be classified as hate speech, they also are terroristic threats, for which you could be jailed? I urge you to broaden your views. Unsavory characters exist in every race of people in the world -- including yours. I also encourage you to practice tolerance and to work to make the world a better place, instead of spewing hatred for an entire race of people based on limited knowledge of a few individuals.

Anonymous said...

While I completely agree with Samantha McCoy's sentiments, as a student of etymology, I must offer a correction on the origin of the term "picnic." There is a little-known etymology hoax that circulated on the internet a few years that stated that the origin of "picnic" was a shortening of the phrase "pick-a-n****r" and that in the rural south where lynchings were a horrific reality, groups of whites would hang random black men or women from trees while eating a lunch.

This is false. The word picnic originally derives from the French verb "piquer" ("to pick" or "peck"), and then rhyming it with a nonsense syllable. An English example might be a term of endearment like "cuddly-wuddly." The term first appeared in a French book in the late 17th century.

Now, an unfortunate fact of the matter is that because of the widespread nature of the false etymology of "picnic," the word has these dark associations without any actual historical fact behind it. To whit, because so many people have read the false origin of picnic, some people now conjure images of a lynching, even though the word has nothing at all to do with something so terrible.

At any rate, this bartender was a vile and sorry excuse for a human.

I so love how the majority of the people that are making these racist comments are all anonymous.This is 2012 and it is so much hate and ignorance in the world. Would it be fair to say that all the racist people are only intimidated of a black man or woman. I am a very successful Criminal Attorney and business owner. You should never judge everybody on something that one person has done. I live in California, the percentage of Caucasian people that I prosecute is 48 to 52%. Should I dislike all Caucasian people? Does it make them all bad? I think not!! I can say that a lot of you that are pointing your finger at black people should really take a long long look at your self. I have been to that place and actually had an encounter with a barmaid who kept walking pass my party until I told her that she had a $100.00 tip coming and she changed her tune immediately. Needless to say, she never received my tip and i gave it to the another barmaid that was done with her shift. You racist people grow the hell up and get a damn life. I feel so sorry for all of you. You all are pitiful and a disgrace to the human race.

I worked as a front-waiter at a fine dining place once (my first white-table-cloth job after working in bars and burger joints), where the staff (mostly gay male restaurant lifers and actress/models) insisted that blacks and women were just not worth waiting on, since they tipped poorly. I suspected this might be a self-fulfilling prophecy: you expect bad tips, you give bad service, you get bad tips. I told the maitre d' to give me all the blacks and women. He did. I had two or two and a half seatings per shift (this was a lunch gig) rather than one or one-and-a-half, and I and my team treated every table like they were white guys with expense accounts. Made so freaking much money (even when some of the customers lived down to the stereotype, I had so many of them!) my backwaiter and busboy were the envy of the place and I got promoted to nights over people with much more time on the job. Lesson? Racism and sexism are good at one thing: producing self-fulfilling prophecies.

For everybody defending Proof, I would just like to highlight their responsibility as an employer to create and nurture and environment that promotes a business culture true to the ideals expressed in their official response to this incident. Its one thing to preach equality. Its another thing completely to see that it is maintained in your work environment. The pure audacity of this employee speaks to a probable truth that this sort of thought process and hate speech was actually TOLERATED within the venue. She had no problem airing it out in public because she is so used to it being tolerated in the Proof bubble that she lives in. Of course, Proofs natural response as a public entity was to distance themselves from the young lady's comments, but for me that's too little too late. If you ask me, this wasn't a rogue employee. It was just a rogue post. Let that marinate.

You all are angry with black people because they don't tip well? If only we didn't judge people based off of monetary value. Blacks probably earn the least in this country, some of us have just enough to get what we're getting...so a tip is sometimes out of the question. So, should I be treated differently then? If you're answer is yes, it's probably because your mind is operating under their system. Common sense tells you that we are all human beings and we should all should be treated equally and fairly. But, who uses common sense anymore? The people who created capitalism, created racism and created and perpetuate the poor conditions blacks live in now. They have us fighting amongst each other instead of fighting them. They laugh at shit like this. It's all a part of the game.

Some people are defending this arguing that black people don't tip and so a bartender has a natural frustration about this. I am black and I always tip. If the service is good I tip 20%. If the service is superb, I've tipped as much as 30%. But sometimes I notice servers who seem to be uncomfortable with the idea of serving me, openly rude, or otherwise assume I will eat whatever slop they put on the plate no matter how cold they have allowed it to get before giving it to me. To those people, I tip < $1 just to give them a lesson. Don't expect a tip is mandatory. IF you want to treat your clientele like animals, then they are not obligated to supplement your income.

Ok maybe there are some black folks that represent the entire African American community badly. However, people have to learn not to categorize one race as being the same. I can't look at all white people and say they are racist, red necks, trailer trash, bimbos, airheads, smell like dogs, etc...we know the stereotypes...it isn't true for all white people.

Just like with the stereotypes that black people are gang members and black woman are all the same with the neck rolling and loudness...and ratchet'ness'(I've seen plenty of white woman act this way too.)

Not all black people are like this so for you to say "...so insane how one race of people can be so fucking incompetent and disgusting" clearly she wasn't talking about just one specific person or group of people she was dealing with at the time. She referred to every single person with black in them.

(And if she was a tad bit more educated she would know she also has some African in her too and therefore included herself in that category, but that's another discussion.)

So when Ryan, Andy, and Britt "Diamond" responded in agreement, they knew exactly what she meant. And if you didn't mean the entire race maybe you should have specified. OR better yet, don't respond at all to the ignorant comment. That just encouraged her to continue.

Zoe was the only one who saw something wrong with the comment and was the only one to call her out on being racist (Hitler).

And just because you feel a certain way, that doesn't mean you have to always say it. That's just rude. For instance, I think Jessica Elizabeth's weave is horrible, but that doesn't mean I have to say it. lol

So Andy, since you're so apologetic...why didn't you call her out on being a racist to begin with?

I think it's because you do agree with her and also because you, along with other millions of fools, thought you would put your comment on a public website for everyone to see and no one would find out about it. Yeah that's smart. Genius.

So you degrade an entire group of people because you got a bad tip?? Every race is capable of tipping horribly. I am black and was a waitress in a primarily white bar and got screwed on tips plenty of times. I am smart enough to realize that anyone can screw you out of a decent tip. There are bad apples in every group. You don't go on a racist rant because of it. You work harder to earn a better one next time. Unfortunately you are in a service industry, meaning you serve others. They are going to act entitiled no matter their skin. Some take it to the extreme and its frustrating but if you want a good tip, suck it up and push through it.

Regardless of why she said it, her comments were vile and offensive. I condemn any racist rant regardless of who is delivering it. The New Black Panther Party is just as damaging as this woman.

It sucks that we still have such ignorance in the world today, but we always have and I honestly don't see it changing soon. People like this guy Andy who try to make excuses for saying offensive things are even sadder then those who admit to their ways. At least a person who admits they are racist is honest about it and not a coward who will talk big to look cool and fit in then when called out tries to cover up and make weak excuses for their actions. Andy, your a weak minded person who plays follow the leader. She could have said she hated tacos and you would have put some rant about how a taco tried to beat up your grandma or something. Just stop now before you dig that hole deeper.
As for this club, it's very unfair to assume that it's a racist establishment based on one persons ignorant actions. To say that it is racist as a whole is as ignorant as the statements this girl made. You can't judge the entire tree based off just 1 bad apple. They did the right thing and let her go. There is not much more then can or should have to do from there to prove they are above this whole situation.
All this said I am glad someone was able to and also willing to bring this to light. People who are ok with using social media to spread their ignorant and hateful opinions should be ok with the entire world knowing and seeing it. You can't put up something like this and not expect to get noticed as the hateful person you are. And Andy, my suggestion to you is maybe take a day or two and really think about your life and if you want to be a follower willing to sacrifice your integrity just to fit in or do you want to be your own man with your own views and thoughts. Right now all you have managed to do is make excuses for the ignorant things you have said.

@Mikey G

Let's put this whole 'freederm er speeeech' argument to rest:

You may not know this but clubs are considered private sector. That means freedom of speech does not protect a public employee's right to speak in any manner in which a company believes is not aligned with their values. This can also be outlined in a conduct clause in her employment contract. In this age where we now, via the internet, publicly expose our personal relationships, education and employment for all strangers to see, she would've been wise to have safeguards to protect herself from this outcome.

You also fail to forget that her job is to service patrons, which I'm sure wasn't dictated by color when she interviewed for it. Now we can only speculate how she treated patrons based on color but if her online outburst was any indication, what Proof did was not only just cause to fire her - they made a smart business decision. Money is money and business owners don't care where it comes from. Her actions will be detrimental to the business to a degree even though the club responded in accordance to public perception, they will lose some money out of this. I think that's enough to get someone fired.

So, lessons?

* The government will not rid someone because they have a shitty disposition towards black people. A business will.

* Don't f#ck with business.

A hateful and ignorant comment isn't made better by hate and ignorant responses. Ive known and worked with Jessica for a while. While I didn't get along with her, I don't believe she is a horrible person. She was wrong with her actions, she has been punished for it. For everyone who has responded with more negative words, you're not helping. As a society we need to rise above hate, teach each other better and pick each other up when we are down. There is enough hate in this world, adding to it isn't productive.

Ahem a quote from Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger.

There's nothin' a white person could ever say to me that will ever catch me off-guard. Ever! I'm always lookin' for some racism! No matter where the fuck I'm at, I'm like "where the racism at? Where it at, where it at, where it at?" No matter where I'm at. I could be sittin' down with Regis Philbin, doin' an interview, talkin' about Madagascar 2, sayin' "yeah, Regis, Madagascar 2's real good, man. I play a zebra again! Oh, this motherfucker's great!" And right in the middle of the interview, Regis'll pull a pencil out of his pocket, stab me in the neck and I'd be like "I shoulda seen it comin'. I let Regis get too close." I'll be mad at me. I'll apologize--"hey, man, I left my neck all out, man. I'm sorry, man, I'm sorry."

I'm offended by what she said but I'm glad she said it outloud and let her true beauty show for everyone. That's what 'merica is about.

what she said was truly disgraceful not only to Blacks but to our entire country. How can this country represent freedom and independence if we hate each other, for something no one has control over. (I dont recall being asked if I wanted to be a specific race or gender before birth.) People please, the world is dangerous without all of this mess. If we all stop hating our difference, we could love our similarities. If we were all one race, one religion, one sexuality, we would be robots. Our differences are what make us want to visit other countries, experience different clubs. Would you go to a club if everyone was white, had blonde hair, blue eyes, wore the same clothes, there is only one drink, and all the music was the same song. WITHOUT DIFFERENT CULTURE, DIFFERENT RACES, ETC, THERE WOULD BE NO CHOICE. WE WOULD ALL HAVE ONE MIND. I dont want to live in that world.

Let me first start off by saying-Leave slavery out of it. As @Anon April 3 9:29pm says we're all wage slaves unless you work for yourself. It is as simple as this- Did Jessica have the right to her opinion (yes). Did Proof have the right to fire her for those views (yes). I would hazard a guess and say I'm sure her level of service matched her mindset when dealing with AfAm clientele and could no longer be shrugged off when displayed so carelessly on FB. Jessica also ranted how could a whole race be so ignorant(unless Proof is bigger and more popular that I imagine) the whole the AfAm race hasn't experienced her special brand of charm nor she ours to indict a whole ethnic group. The same useless argument could be used to judge all white people based on the affirmative responses to her racist rant. Let's agree to disagree shall we? Note-As an Admin Supervisor I'd like to say LAY OFF SERVICE WORKERS. The job choice has little to do with education but with economic necessity OR they just like their job. Nothing anonymous here. I stand by my words.

Not surprising but it is time to turn the page Black people. If Whites like this disturbed White girl and her buddies don't like Black people then let them be. You can't make a dog meow like a cat just like you can't make a cat bark like a dog. People are going to be what they are.

Another thing we need to stop doing is throwing out the "racist" tag to anyone that say vulgar and disgusting things towards Blacks. These are bigots. They are bigoted towards Black people because of their race. A racist uses their authority or money to deny your civil liberties because of your race. This girl was a bartender. Other than a drink, how is she going to deny you anything? She's serving drinks, not firing you from your job or kicking you out of the neighborhood. A racist can do those things not a bigot.

The owners & mgmt of PROOF should not be held accountable for her remarks, but commended for their swift response to this issue.

I would hope that Jessica Elizabeth now knows that everyone doesn't agree with her RACIST remarks and will think before she speaks.

Did Jessica ever think the reason she received lousy tips was because she had given lousy service. Who in their right mind would do otherwise? Jessica, you're right, you have a life outside of the club. So far outside, I'd be surprised if you're ever allowed to visit.

Andy, as you're well aware we have an African American President, that also happens to be bi-racial. Did you ever stop and think that it took more than the US (I'm black) as well to elect him? We are only 12% of the U.S. population. He not only received the popular vote but an overwheliming amount of the electorial votes. That is because there are bi-racial americans that were not considered. Not to mention the fact that a lot of white people voted for him too. Keep in mind that for every bi-racial child out there, they have grandparents, aunts, uncles & cousins that want to see someone that looks like them make a difference.

Angel, you're no better than Andy. For you to say that you have a Kenyen friend is interesting to say the least. You have 1 black friend. With that being said, I know you haven't spoken with him because people from African believe themselves to be better than African Americans because they were never slaves.

Brit, you're classic. It appears you were following your BLONDE friend. It's too bad that it takes one bleach blonde to make them all look bad. What did they every do to you?

Hats off to ZOE for calling Jessica out.

I've known nightclub owners and once blacks start showing up, it's the kiss of death for the establishment. They come in, buy one drink and go outside to their car to drink the stuff they brought with them. Then it's "white flight" onto a place they feel safe and comfortable and the bar shuts down in a month..

No Andy you don't get a pass for apologizing for your comments.

Here is a SIDE note: GEORGE ZIMMERMAN planned the murder of Trayvon Martin, from start-to-finish;

His words:

"f uc king_C OO N", "They always get away", "he's up to no-good", "looks like he's REACHING for something", "He's Drunk".

Sound Familiar? ZIMMERMAN wanted to be a cop, even the police knew he was to racist.

A news report is saying the screams on the police recording are not ZIMMERMANS.

I BELIEVE THEY ARE THAT RACIST-PIG SCREAMS. I believe those screams were another one of his racists ploys, to establish a reason for the murder.

Like I said in an earlier post, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN planned THIS MURDER FROM START-TO-FINISH.

Beware, my brethren, these "NON-RACIST" white-people are up to their old strategies again. Lets see, how this play-out!!! STAY TUNED IN.

"Chicago is one of the most segregated cities in America with a long history of racial strife."

Yup, that's one reason why I hate it. Philly is bad, but not as bad as SHITCAGO.

As for black people not tipping, I used to be a server and I always tip generously. And I am not loud or rude.

Lastly, I get tired of the argument that "blacks use the n word." Um, I never use it and neither does anybody I know. Anyone who uses it is ignorant, no matter what their color, and that includes millionaire comedians and rappers.

As for this woman's comments, I don't care, as long as she doesn't say it to my face and her feelings don't impact on my life. Not all, of course, but many white people feel this way. I'm just surprised that she was stupid enough to post them on a public forum.

To the ignorant fool posting about zimmerman, zimmerman is HISPANIC where are your facts/evidence that the Hispanic man "planned to kill" ?
Did you know nbc actually apologized for playing an edited version of the 911 call? Probably not because people like you dont care about facts, its all about defamation of character, white character. even tho zimmerman isn't white! The media says he is because it fits their PC white= bad minority= good standards. How much black on (real) white crime happens compared to white on black? Not enough, so the media created the trayvon was murdered by a white racist story, and your a sucker for falling for it.
As for jessica Elizabeth, who cares? Everyone on here is acting as tho blacks dont harbor racist feelings! Give me a fucking break.

I was shocked when I read this. But, as I read the comments I became even more upset. This is a dumb ignorant girl. Who cares what color skin she has. There are racist people of all colors not just white people. Why are people making this a black and white thing? It’s a dumb racist girl! Publicly calling out blatant racist I’M ALL ABOUT! Starting a fueled race war I’m not. Prime example is the idiot in Florida that was about to start burning Qurans. Did that guys feeling accurately portray the feelings of all Americans towards Muslims? NO it didn’t, but the world media made it look that way! All people saw is Americans are burning Qurans. STOP YOUR TORCH MOB and stop fueling hate! YES she is dumb! Yes she should be ostracized. But guess what? If you think this represents the feelings of white people or you think this has any correlation with Zimmerman (which by the way is Hispanic not white) or Trayvon Martin than your just as ignorant! Why get all worked up for girl that is destined to work the Grave Yard shift at The Golden Nugget “wondering where it all went wrong?”

Everyone bases their own opinions off of their own experiences.

No white can safely go dine or party on the west side or south side of the city. This is a problem with common behavior in the black community.

Holding the victim who is sick of that behavior responsible is as wrong as the girl making broad generalizations about every negro person.

Blacks should not be surprised that their own fellow blacks insane conduct has left a lot of angry people of other races just wishing to be segregated from them.

It is really more important for blacks to solve the behavior problems with their own communities than to worry about racism from others.

very few people I know care what your skin tone is, but those same people care a lot about the fact that large swaths of chicago are too dangerous to drive through,

and the MOST dangerous, chaotic and decrepit are all-black areas that were once functional all-white neighborhoods until whites had to flee.

What's up with the dumb broad claiming she was raped by a black man? Wake up lady. If what you say is true, then you were raped by a MAN who happened to be black. Are you saying that there are no white rapists? If you believe that then you need to check your local prison, jail, or sex offender list. I can assure you that you'll see numerous white sex offenders there. Or better yet,I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you were trying to infer that being raped by a white man would have been better? I would think not! I can't imagine being raped being a pleasurable experience for anyone. Needless to say, your claim is that all blacks are monkeys. If that's the case baby, it means you were raped by one. If I was raped by a monkey, it's not something I'd post on the internet. I'd keep it to myself. By the way, if you ever go to the zoo don't wear loose clothing because monkeys gossip. When a monkey hits one, they all want to have fun!lol

So why is it a bad thing that the owner probably did the exact same thing before going off half-cocked and making a bad situation even worse?

Just for the record, I am not a racist. But lets put one thing to bed. White people didn't take blacks from Africa. Africans took their own people from Africa and sold them into slavory all around the world. And while PART of America had slaves, even in the begaining not all whites agreed to it. And with out the whites discuss with slavory, the blacks would still be slaves. What this woman and her friends said is sad. But that shoe fits on both sides. There are blacks that act just as bad. Yet noone says anything because they are black. In order to stop hate both sides have to stop at the same time.

"Freedom" includes the right of people to VOLUNTARILY segregate.

The black community in the USA has a violence and crime problem that is only matched in Africa.
Almost every single black community is un-livable in the USA.. 99.5%

We used to have more peace and more urban areas that whites actually built that white people could live in and raise families when it was legal to form a covenant and sell only to other whites, irish, germans, italians.. or whoever else you wanted to live around you.

Blacks in large pct do not raise or control their offspring and they destroy entire cities and regions.

People are sick of it. I do not hate blacks but I do hate the non-stop black crime spree and like this girl said, I simply want TO LIVE AROUND MY OWN KIND!!

That = freedom. Forced busing into dangerous black areas, Forced integration at bayonet point = NOT FREE.

Booker T. Washington himself a former slave, warned that a portion of the blacks could NOT be integrated. They were too much for even other blacks to deal with.

You could only integrate functional, decent blacks, but the underclass needed some controls on it.

Booker T. Washington got called every name in the book, but he was right.

Many Blacks want to cry out all day about "racism" but black crime and violence is never attributed to the BLACK community. We have had enough.
