Why does most black people tip very little or nothing at all . I'm a black person and even the people in my family don't tip . It makes me sick to my stomach when I go out with them and they try to tip 2 bucks on a $40 meal . That's why white people get good service , most of them understand how to tip . So the next time you go to a resturant and nobody wants to serve you , a taxi passes you by , the housekeeper at a hotel is short with you , it's because of you being selfish or your fellow black people being selfish . Oh yea when you go to the Doctors office or go visit your lawyer , just remember , that person might have been in the service industry and remembers that most black people are selfish pieces of sh.t They might have some prejudice based on when they where struggling thru school and your selfish butt came in got good service and left 2 bucks on a $100 bill .
I do not think it has anything to do with being greedy or cheap but just ignorant of modern culture. It was not terribly long ago blacks weren't even allowed into restaurants or establishments where they would be on the served end of the transaction. Even after Jim Crow was put aside, only local neighborhood places welcomed them. It has only been in recent years that blacks have ventured outside their comfort zones and frequented nice, upscale places. Their lack of tipping skills is just a result of a lack of knowledge of modern etiquette.

My white family who have always lived in rural, small towns where only restaurants were diners or some local family-style places are now travelling more and coming to visit me and experiencing better dining establishments and their tipping skills embarrass the hell out of me. I just try to overlook it (and offer to pay the tip myself) and chalk it up to ignorance on thier part, through really no fault of their own. There seem to be a lot of other posters on this thread who are ignorant as well.

The states would be a better place if they still could not come in any business unless they were there to clean the toilet,

And this commentary is being offered by one that contributes so much. There must be a religious reason for their shortfalls. Being as informed as you like to believe that you are, you must have a tangible explanation for everything. Such unabridged wisdom. Not unlike that of the sandwich placard wearing world savior, screaming thru a megaphone on a busy downtown street corner. Not to insinuate that the message is untrue, but good news can be delivered wrong, thus adversely impacting the effectiveness.
I guess it's obvious that I am bothered by hypocrisy and by those that practice it.

we are all sinners, hypocrits and evil, which is why its not me you strive to follow but Jesus Christ....follow me and die, follow christ,and live...our difference mr.observer of worlds? I can admit im evil, you are just another arrogant haterof god and proud of your filthy deeds and mockery of god. Trust Jesus, Not Revelations...none are perfect, righteousness is a path not a goal. Not my wisdom, gods, I, like you am but a fool, ita gods words that will judge us not mine, know the difference.

Ur right roy, most black folks are so cheap when it comes to tipping. Prejudiceness dosent happen most times unless there have been many occasions where the same race does the same things over and over again. For ex. If u have 10 black people come in and 9 of them leave horrible tips, u start to put 2 & 2 together an realize majority of them people have not been educated on whats a proper tip %. Not to mention u have to put up with the loud, arrigant f'n monkeys the whole time there settin next to ya an hope they dont start shootin cuase sum1 said sumthin that might of offended them.

All i see is a group of ignorant people hating blacks. "they steal" "they kill" "they collect welfare" its always the same crap. The white man is the most backward ass being there is. you people make it seem like blacks are the worst--- when in reality you are! You people have wronged every other race at least once and still think so highly of yourself. You could blame blacks for everything, but dont even have the human decency to admit you guys are just as responsible or even more so for how screwed up the world is. Really? The white man will never be the best. As long as whites feel superior they will never be superior.
