Veteran Once Denied Free Meal Now Aims To Feed 1 Million Veterans | BlackDoctor | Page 2

A similar incident happened to my Dad Edward Palmer during the Korean War in the 1950s right in our nation’s capital of Washington DC! 

Not much has changed for Black Veterans. The false accuser was a Trump supporter. Even though the Veteran presented his Military ID and Discharge papers his meal was still taken away. 

As a US ARMY VETERAN This makes me feel sad but at least things worked out so he could fed many homeless Veterans but probably not at Chili’s.

  1. This manager needs to be MORE than disciplined – he needs to be FIRED! I won’t be eating at Chilis after watching this disgrace!! I vote with my wallet!

    1. Yes Sister a boycott is in order. Feel Free to return to the original post and spread the word. At least a great deal of money was raised to help this Black Veteran and he in turn is helping other Veterans, especially Homeless Veterans. BOYCOTT CHILIS!!

      1. I mean REALLY! Even if the guy was “simply” a hungry homeless person who had never served, how stupid of that manager to make a scene over a single meal. And even if he did NOT see the vet’s papers, why not look immediately instead of getting up on his ego-based high horse?

        It undid all the otherwise good will that I’m sure Chili’s Vet-meals program was supposed to inspire. Penny-wise, pound foolish!

    1. The incoming Tyrant approves this kind of thing. He was supported by the KKK, the American Nazi Party and even some whites who call themselves Christians, ie The Christian Identity Movement all these groups plan on exterminating Blacks, Muslims, Jews, Asians and other minorities. Dhrump is fulfilling his promise to Make America white again! This is what happens when you get a Fascist in office.

  2. I’m shocked. Aren’t there laws against this kind of thing? I mean, yes, good people shamed this Chili place but it’s not enough. Sorry, I don’t really know what it’s like in the US so I shouldn’t comment but how do these companies get away with it?

    1. Unfortunately racism, bigotry and discrimination is ingrained in American society. Even though there are laws against discrimination they are not enforced as they should be. And now with the tyrant and dictator about to take office things are going to get much worse for Black Americans.

    2. The incoming Tyrant approves this kind of thing. He was supported by the KKK, the American Nazi Party and even some whites who call themselves Christians, ie The Christian Identity Movement all these groups plan on exterminating Blacks, Muslims, Jews, Asians and other minorities. Dhrump is fulfilling his promise to Make America white again! This is what happens when you get a Fascist/Racist in as Leader of the Free World. But if will no longer be free or safe for African Americans and/or other minorities.

    1. We are going backwards to the America of the 1950s when I was born. Back to the Jim Crow. Our incoming President promised that he would make America “White” again and looks like he is going to succeed. Trump condones this kind of discrimination. Remember what he said about the Gold Star family the Khans. You only count in the USA if you are white. Everyone else will be eliminated.

      1. This is the most horrible thought. I hope that the people around T. are smart enough to keep him from such actions. It would be crazy if there are refugees coming from the USA. I pray that this nightmare won’t ever be real!

      2. White Americans will never change a system that benefits them and racism/bigotry/discrimination benefits white America, Corporations and Big Business. That’s why Trump was voted President so America can return to the days of Jim Crow. What Hitler did to the Jews in Germany is exactly what Trump will do to African-Americans, Muslims, the Disabled and any other group he hates.

        Best example is the Native Americans. They are on lock-down on Reservations, they will never get back their country or lands and they mostly live in abject poverty. History repeats itself.

      3. A horror scenario! But there are white people standing up for their brothers and sisters, no matter what color or culture – back then and there are even more today. It is not as it was 70 years ago. But I hope that it doesn’t get that far. Trump cannot decide on his own.

      4. The Congress and Senate are ruled by Republicans. They will approve any measure he puts through. As in the case of all the Black men/women murdered by rogue cops there was little or no outcry from white America because those scenarios do not affect them and most just don’t care. Real Life!

      5. I have to admit that I don’t see a lot the domestic affairs from here. Something that I am convinced of is that such a behavior would not be tolerated by other contries! It would be a step back in evolution! I don’t know how much that could affect any domestic decisions. I know it has no influence but I really care!

      6. That’s why it is so important we all need to act that way. Each little act of kindness has its effect and causes ripples. There may still be some who try to defend their bad intentions (and of course it is not of support when they are in leading positions) but the development goes towards the other direction…. which such leaders even more. Sometimes I think we need such people to stick together even more for each other!

      7. So true. I refuse to follow evil. There is no defense for wickedness. I do my best to see people as individuals not as stereotypes. Over the years God has lead me to open my mind to other cultures and religions. Learned to listen and appreciation other traditions outside of the ones I’m familiar with. Makes it easier to get along with people plus you get to enjoy new ideas and cultural celebrations. God made the earth with different types of people for a reason.

      8. You said it all here, Deborah! That is exactly it. “See each person as an individual and you will never stop reaching new shores, understand more, get insights over insights,…” The open-minded see so much more! That was a wonderful message, Deborah! I hope many read it!

  4. That is pathetic, that young man looks as though he has no respect at all to any Servicemen, I agree there should be a high profile boycott of that store.
    Keep us informed if there is any updates.

    1. Thanks. I will let you know of any updates if and when I receive them. That restaurant manager should be fired and Yes there should be a boycott of all Chili’s restaurants. Hit’em in the pocketbook!! Again thanks for reading and supporting me!
