Interracial Couple Gets Valet Ticket With Words ‘Jungle Fever’
A U.S. Army sergeant major just back from Kuwait and his wife went to Spondivits in East Point on New Year’s Day, but what they found on their key ring when they got home left them deeply hurt.
“I shouldn’t have to feel this way,” said Candea Aarons.
When Candea and her husband Sam got home they noticed the tag left by the man who they say valet parked their car, with the words “jungle fever,” a derogatory slur used to describe interracial couples.
“We have never been so blatantly described in such a blatantly appalling manner ever,” Candea Aarons said…
The restaurant’s chef, Glenn Gane, told Diamant the valet worked for a contractor called APS Valet.
In a statement, Gane said, “Spondivits does not tolerate racial speech of any kind.”
The valet company says the attendant in question no longer works for them.
