The title in this story is exactly whats wrong with race relations in this country...

Why does it matter that the BLACK guy had his food spit on?

Why does it matter that the WHITE people supposedly spit on his food?

Someone spit on this mans food and it is disgusting! Wrong is wrong! And wrong doesn't have a color.

But people who insist on using color as a identification only have an interest to drive a wedge between themselves and those a different color then them.

Wow! Remarks like this is sad. It was a simple black man as i am sure someone could tell writing the article and some kids working at burger king spitting on food. One thing i know when i was younger (15/16years of age) and working at a fast food restaurant, you had juvenile kids like this that would do stuff regardless of color so for you to then talk about a black owned "foodjoint" just shows your kidlike mind! Point blank its wrong of someone to spit in your food. Like one other person said already DNA test it is all.

ERIE, Pa.A... "WHITE"... Ohio man claims in a federal discrimination lawsuit that a northwestern Pennsylvania Burger King worker spat on his food while another worker tried to obscure the man's view of the incident.

A spokeswoman from Burger King's Miami headquarters did not immediately respond to questions about the lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Erie.

Glenn Goodwin, of Cleveland, claims the incident took place in November 2008 at a Burger King in Fairview, about 10 miles southwest of Erie.

The lawsuit contends police investigated and discovered saliva in Goodwin's food, but his attorney, Jeff Yelsky, wouldn't say if criminal charges resulted.

Yelsky says the Burger King workers, who are not identified in the lawsuit, were...."BLACK".

change the color....now who cares???

If they did spit in his food, it's probably because he was acting like an ass toward them. That's why I don't eat anywhere that I would have to special order or return my food.

Something tells me that you do not have a harley, you may not even have a motorcycle and that you may not even be white - because this is the kind of comment that is more designed to make the people you pretend to be, look like racists and fools - which is unfair to the majority of decent bikers and white people.

Right after the Fairview Burger King opened, myself and a friend became violently ill after eating there. I contacted the corporate office in Erie and I was offered some free whopper coupons. I have never eaten there again. Anyone who eats at any of the fast food resturants is taking a chance of getting sick. The ignorant young people hired at these places are scary. They don't care if you get sick as long as they get a good laugh. They don't wash their hands regularly, they don't wash themselves regularly!!! They can't do any simple math in their heads. This is definitely the "stupid" self-centered generation. They have no respect for others.
