It’s kind of a wonderful thing that people of all races in America can interact and get along and share common courtesies despite the wedges being driven every single day. What has the media done today to help? Well, CNN tried to convince women who didn’t think President Trump’s tweets calling out “The Squad” were racist that they were wrong; Salon informed us that Republicans will never say that racism is “racism” because they’re all racist; and POLITICO pitched in with a piece explaining the racist history of tipping.
Analysis: You might not think of tipping as a legacy of slavery, but it has a far more racialized history than most Americans realize. https://t.co/2HdWYOko2O

I'll stop tipping this weekend and point my server to your article…..
God knows I don't want to be a racist.

Another racist post by a leftist publication for the purpose of causing racial division

Oh gee! It's 2019 and we need to actually stay in the realities of era we live in. I'm sure tipped workers aren't thinking of it's origins. They are just trying to make rent or feed their kids. Stop racializing everything. We don't live in those times.

I’ll stop tipping then to do my part to fight racism.

After reading an article in Politico, it seems that anyone who tips is a racist. You are looking down on the person serving you. This is racist, I will no longer be leaving tips, but a short explanation on the bill of my support for my server. #racist

Last politico staff meeting: "Ok people, go out and find some shit we can call racist and write about it."

You could also stay at home and save money. Tip yourself the money you saved. Pat yourself on the back and call it a day.

Boy, thank God you put this article out! Now we can all show how big of racist we are by giving a few more bucks to the pizza guy… do you guys @politico ever get tired of being race-baiters? Pitiful…

That said, everyone should still tip liberally for good service.

I am a life-long conservative and a liberal tipper, even when service isn't great. I tip well because I have worked in restaurants and depended on tips.
I am against a federal minimum wage because I understand how economics works.
Do service workers support min wage over tips?

No, at least, not the smart ones.

So we should all stop tipping.

Tipping is ancient. How to twist things really well.

Oh stop it. People have been paying extra for good/better services since caveman days

Molten-hot take: Trump sends his racist tweets from the White House, which was built by slaves https://t.co/HMUEuxZ6rz
