January 4, 2014 Atlanta Georgia (NYDailyNews) — A Georgia couple started their new year with a sad reminder that racism still exists.
Sam Aarons, a U.S. Army sergeant major, and his wife Candea Aarons found the words “jungle fever” written on their valet ticket after what was supposed to be a celebratory New Year’s Day meal.
Now, the Aarons just feel hurt and shocked.
“I was upset, but more disappointed. More disappointed that this is 2014 and we still have individuals out there who still have these beliefs,” Sam Aarons, of Columbus, told WTVM.
Sam, who has just come back from serving in Kuwait, decided to take his wife to Spondivits restaurant in East Point for a nice seafood dinner after a day of shopping. The valet who parked their car was allegedly an African American man who seemed friendly enough.
“The boldness. To put something like this on a card, attach it to your customer’s key chain in such a way that they are sure it is not going to fall off, and that they are actually going to get this piece of paper and read it,” Candea said. “Who does that, January 1, 2014, who does that?”
It’s a common practice for valets or waiters to jot down quick notes to remember their customers. But some employees in the service industry have gotten in hot water after leaving offensive words, like fat, on valet tickets.
The Aarons feel they were the targets of discrimination. They said they had never been labeled in this way during the 13 years that they’ve been together as a couple.
“To me those words were racially motivated,” Candea told News One.
Chef Glenn Gane, of Spondivits restaurant, released a statement saying that “Spondivits does not tolerate racial speech of any kind.” The company that hired the valet, APS, confirmed to WSB-TV that the man had been fired. His identity has not been revealed.
Although the man has lost his job, Candea thinks it is not enough. The couple are now seeking the aid of attorneys.
“I was unprepared and I was unaware racism is alive and well,” she said.
