I love how it "matters" that she's the mother of Chris Rock. Gives the the suit so much more/less (pick one, doesn't matter) validity.

So what is this? The announcement of the intention to announce? I'm going to announce tomorrow that I'm going to sue you.

Good luck proving that.

I think Cracker Barrel or Bob Evans got accused of the same thing years ago.

Waffle House and Cracker Barrell have each faced litigation over this issue in the last several years, don't know about Denny's or Bob Evans.

Story time:
I had to travel on business a year or so ago with a black girl from the office, and our dinner choices were Cracker Barrel or an IHOP about 5 extra miles out of our way from our hotel. She insisted on the IHOP and wouldn't say why at first. Then she explained that she didn't eat at CB based on the aforementioned litigation and a personal boycott of the place. Then she implied that I was a racist if I didn't comply with her personal boycott of CB and get moving toward a non-racist establishment. I thought about dropping her off at IHOP and telling her I'd be back after I ate my racist dinner, but didn't think that would wind up being a good move, professionally speaking.

I ate there once. It was a very sad day, since the food was like food you feed to sick people.

Or you could've pulled a Fresh Groovin' and ate at both.

So, which of the two is actually what happened:

1) She went in and demanded special treatment because she is Chris Rock's mother.
2) She went in and ordered something not on the menu and when told that they didn't serve that there, left in a huff and said that they didn't serve black people.

Al Sharpton needs to die in a grease induced heart attack.
