probally nothing, those that try and play the racisim card all there life, find that every situation that doesnt go there way is because they are of a diffrent race. Probally didnt have a room open near the pool or one near the bar to give you.

"Go my way" I asked for towels and washcloths because there was only one of each in the room. Attitude is not what is deserved no greeting no response . I don't know how you live but where i'm from people don't have to pull the race card because people are treated like people not property. When we checked out the next morning my 6 year old daughter told this lady bye, have a good day she wouldn't even look at her.. 6 years old there's shouldn't be that much hate in any ones heart..... I had to explain to my daughter about racism at an early age because she did not understand why this lady did not speak back. My daughter and I prayed for this lady, that the lord will humble her heart.

If a white gets a flat tire in a black area they are raped or killed. THAT is racism.

Many folks in Morganton are deaf, as a school for the deaf is based there. When I ask a Hispanic maid for towels and she just looks at me, is that racism?

She was probably just a naturally hateful person who didn't want to be working...if you are not a willing to try to be nice, do not take a job in customer service.

sounds like you are her husband! glad all people in morganton are not like this. the gentleman should not have been treated like this because of his color.he is certainly not teaching his child to be like you. thank GOD there are really nice people left in this world.maybe she will give you a room by the pool after you have been by the bar.

There's plenty of racism in Morganton, it's either that or most of the people are fat, old, ugly and bitter.

anyone can be raped or killed doesn't matter what their color is or what neighborhood they live in. and besides majority of rapist usually are white males so learn your facts before saying something as stupid as you did about that beening racism. sounds like to me you are racist now do you really think that looks good on you? NOT!!

I hate that to you n now Morganton will be that racist town. That having been said there is a lot of racism in our tiny town anyone who says otherwise is in denial. I'm a white woman but I see and hear it daily here. Its so sad uneducated and closed-minded. If you are ever in town again I suggest the Hampton race isn't an issue there everyones money is green. On the off chance it was there you stayed call mitch I guarantee he will make you feel much better about the incident. I'm so sorry to hear you were treated badly in our town but please know that the most of its are full of southern charm and wit wind would love for you to come back and experience that side.
