This incident is just further evidence that racism is not dead and that ignorance is on the rampage....I can only imagine how this American soldier must feel, knowing that every day she puts her life on the line for the likes of this man to have the freedom that he he holds dear.....only to return the favor by calling her racial slurs and having the audacity to lay his filthy hands on her in the presence of her child...This child will never forget this incident and her life will never be the same....In that light, he should be judged accordingly and his life should never be the same either...these are NOT the sixties...white people can't go around beating black people "just because" or turning water hoses on them "just because"...the end result won't be the same as back then....not meant to be a's just the truth...that african american soldier is a human being...who deserved to be treated as such..

Didn't she know that Cracker Barrel has a long time problem with Blacks and Gays. IF they don't like them, do you think the regular "White" patrons will?

If it had been the other way around and some black guy did that to a white women this would have being on all the major news outlets. Im not trying to incite a race war, but all this over obama being selected as the president?? look at all the things bush did that blk people didnt agree with....Katrina....Iraq....and to add insult after leaving the white house he moved into a house where blks are not allowed. I wish someone would put their hands on a female family member of mine, he wouldnt need a jail cell....I WOULD!!!!!
