I worked as a pizza delivery driver - Why don't black people tip?
I took a part time job to make some extra cash. I was disappointed to discover that some stereotypes are true.
For the sake of fairness, a small minority of black people did tip, but only a token amount.
IMHO, this is also why serving staff at places like IHOP and Denny's are reluctant to wait on a table full of black folks. They know they will not be receiving a tip.
It was really sad to see and I tried to not let it taint my opinion as a whole.

You are correct Kern. I have even left extra tip money after black friends of mine didn't tip or not much at all. Look what happened to Denny's a few years ago. Das raht

Not only do they not tip, they expect special treatment and do not even want to pay the bill. I was in a restaurant that featured a buffet style dinner. A table full of mama monkeys got the roast beef. One sent it back to the kitchen several times because it was "too red". Finally the waiter explained that she had gotten "rare" roast beef from the buffet and should order something from the menu if she wanted it specially cooked. After much snorting and carrying on in true monkey fashion one of them made the remark "He must don't know who de prezdent is". This was in 2009. Then they all started arguing with the poor waiter until the manager came out and told them to eat or leave but quit disturbing other diners. They said if they didn't get what they wanted they would not pay for what they "et". Mind you they were shoveling it in as fast as they could go but already trying to figure out how to get out of paying.

The only time that I ever went to Golden Corral I saw exactly that with unruly chillin runnin rounds. Purple Feathers Hats, the works. It was comical, yet pathetic.

Man listen if the service is good i'll tip if you have me waiting a hour for a damn pizza .... I probably wont depending on how a feel i always tip gave a waitress a $20 tip she did a great job. Give another $100 oh and i always tip the Papa John's and dominos guy. It depends on the person overall.

Blacks are notoriously know to be horrible tippers . Hate to say it most are not used to dinning out at expensive restaurants. But it's not just black people it's most poor people who are no acquainted with the service culture.

Well actually... My people that have good jobs tip very well. I used to work for Domino's when I was young and when I went to the wealthy neighborhoods the blacks I delivered to tipped. Now sometimes when I when I went to the lower-middle class or poor neighborhoods I still got a good tip. But people can't give what the don't have.

Another thing... When I dealt with Americanized Asians they tip. When I dealt with Asians that spoke little English and had yet to assimilate I felt they didn't know that they were supposed to tip.

Of course there are those folks in every race that are dying to spit on someone who is "serving" them. It happens.

No one is ENTITLED to a tip.

Tips are GRATUITY. That means the person served leaves a little something extra for the effort made to deliver their quality of service. I'm black and I tip generously when the service is good and I tip very generously when the service and food are above average. However, if my service is bad I'll tip much less and give the establishment a bad restaurant review online. I don't like bad service. If you are unhappy with your job, then resign and move on. Paying customers shouldn't have to be a part of your misery through bad service you provide.
