Baltimore restaurant didn't let black mother and son in because of dress code while white kid was inside wearing similar clothing
The African-American mother is close to file a lawsuit against a Baltimore restaurant after she and her 9-year-old son weren’t allowed to come inside to eat allegedly because of her son’s T-shirt and shorts. The apologies from the restaurant didn’t satisfy the woman as she says the incident traumatized her child.
This was the first time the boy ever faced the descrimination, the woman said.
It happened at Ouzo Bay restaurant. Marcia Grant thinks that the incident is a deal of racism because the same dress-code demand didn’t obviously apply to a white child in the restaurant as her video shows.
This place is said to be well-known for its discrimination. Again, the apologies are not accepted and the mom is never going to visit this place again.
Grant’s spokesman, Michelle Watts, said that the woman retained civil right attorney. Watts believes that the only difference between Grant's son, Dallas, and a white kid who was allowed in Ouzo Bay was color of skin. What about a dress code, the both boys were wearing almost similar clothing, the video shows.
In the video it can be heard a manager tries to explain that Grant’s son can’t eat at the restaurant because he was wearing the shorts. But it can be seen that camera catches a white boy wearing shorts, T-short and sneakers too.
In the result of the incident two managers were fired, including the one who didn’t let Grant and her son dine at the restaurant.
The decision to file a lawsuit isn't made yet, Watts said.
