Lawsuit Alleges Landmark Steakhouse Employees Referred to African-American Customer as 'McStinkynigger' and 'McNigshit'

landmark.jpg
In the Corona del Mar universe, Landmark Steakhouse is for MILFs-in-training, for gals not old enough for the Quiet Woman but too old to serve as eye candy over at Gulfstream. Its food is forgettable; its drinks pedestrian. I wouldn't go there if the meal was free, but I never once felt uncomfortable at the restaurant on account of my ethnicity or even my empty wallet.

Thank God I'm not Mark McHenry. In a federal lawsuit filed last Friday, McHenry--who is African-American--alleged Landmark employees replaced his name on credit card receipts with crude racial slurs--this, despite the fact he was a regular customer at Landmark.

The Orange County Register first broke this story, but them being a family paper, you couldn't make sense of what were the offending slurs. Thankfully, the Weekly ain't a family paper--and we have the offending receipts, which were part of the complaint filed.

Here's one. And now, the other:

Eek! The general manager and owner of the group that owns Landmark, CDM Restaurants, of course deny their establishments are racists, but the evidence presented above is pretty damn damning that they're at least guilty of having idiot employees. We'll see what a judge has to say...

It's 2012, and still we're dealing with this ignorant crap.  Proof-positive that this will never die because this poison is being passed down from generation to generation.  Shaking my head...

Its an unfortunate situation to be in on either side, I think no matter how friendly a customer is, always deploy a professional attitude towards them, keep all jokes to a minimum, no sex jokes, racial, political nor religious talks, i.e. conversations with customers period, the guy might have just been waiting for the perfect storm situation to occur, or the employee was an absolute idiot, who might have not been properly trained, overly naive ETC.

McHenry your not getting compensated for the racial slurs....Think about it...If your a regular at this establishment and their writing these racial remarks on your receipts...Can you imagine what they were doing to your food?..So, really that's what your being compensated for....I don't want to even think about the things you were eating......Suggestion....Just because you feel your a successful businessman don't expect to be treated any different from any other non successful black person, You should try eating at home....Then you'll know exactly what's going in your food...

 It is shocking that these morons or moron would have the nerve, gall and audacity to put that on a receipt....there has been comments that black people are terrible tippers but this man was tipping about 20% which is a good tip....the standard is 20% and an extra dollar for special service.....on valentines day, I tipped $4 on a $6 tab because I told her it was a cupid tax, you do these things when you go there often or they let you order something for less after a time of day deadline passed.....

Regardless,of what anyone 'thinks,by law any person of color,religion,sexual preference or sex,is entitled to the same respect as the majority that frequents a legal business that is requried to pay state and federal tax and licensing.There is NO doubt the culprit was/is a racist therefore, entitled full punishment to the law.Most often people/companies learn lessons and understand the law,once their pocket books are hit.

Seriously. Even as a crude joke it's still offensive. Now the restaurant owner will have to pay up and pay to train his employees not to be racist assholes.

One last note...I realize I'm very late blogging about this (I don't live in CA), but just to show you I read the blogs,"Andi, Gustavo, and Andrew, you should just go ahead and blow each other.  We won't look..."

BTW, is it important that I wouldn't EVER file a lawsuit over something like this?  If my receipt said "WhiteTrashDouchebag!", I'd just wonder what I did to piss them off.  It would be a laugh to me, and I'd try to be extra-nice IF I ever went back.  Too bad that "Lawsuit" has become the American "supplement."

What the hell??  You have the freedom to THINK anything you want to, but what kind of DUMB*SS would print it out?  No matter what your racist beliefs are, only a moron would do something like this!  Someone deserves punishment for such a stupid act.  The restaurant pays, then they sue the bartender to recoup!

Black people will never get respected until they turned their communities and nations around. Racism isn't a form of ignorance, it's a form of arrogance. Period. 

No one harrass  or belittle those they are afraid of.  Growing up Asians were considered the inferior yellow race, but now they are suddenly part of the White race.

What happened? Before The housing crisis i thought we had made progress in racial discrimination. Are groups looking for someone to blame tough times on? It seems like Dr Kings' dream is slipping down a slippery slope. down an avenue of ignorance, racial crime and scapegoat politics.. I thought my 1 yr old would have a better tomorrow but even with a black president; police, prisons and now waiters are proving otherwise

@Normanwest I tell them, they actually OWE me a tip, for having to be within my spatial presence. How lucky they are to experience my existence within a 10 foot radius. So deduct that from the 100.00 dollar FEE I should charge you for allowing you the good fortune of my presence.

@Astro Well, I have to agree with you there. Even the successful Black people won't help build their own home Countries. They just get rich and fuck fuck fuck. lol Seriously though, Blacks need to prove themselves in the global view of things. As of now, they''re still at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Africa is still a 3rd world country. Where as S. Korea went from 3rd to 1st world economic powerhouse within 10 years. Look it up.
