    I'm also becoming less optimistic about the GOP being pushed out of power by demographic changes.

    trump's AmeriKKKa: Denny's manager tried to eject 3 black women after they complained about racial slurs

    Yes, Denny's has had problems like this before the current occupant of the White House moved in, but 5 or 10 years ago it seemed like we'd occasionally see a lull in public acts of overt racism and now you can find something like this just about anywhere every single day.

    I'd sure love to see the return of the boycott to pressure for action on civil rights. The Montgomery bus boycott was more complicated than just a tired Rosa Parks not wanting to give up her seat, and the refusal of blacks to ride costing the city money, but it did cost the city enormously from a revenue standpoint and put a huge strain on their public transportation. And while the users may have been predominantly black residents, plenty of white people used the buses too.

    If people of color refused to offer Denny's their business and those of us who identify as white and see Denny's as complicit in allowing racist behavior did the same, the place would shut down in short order. If every cop in the world stopped going to Starbucks it wouldn't amount to anything more than a blip on their revenue radar, but if every person out there who is tired of racism boycotted Starbucks after the Philadelphia incident, Starbucks would have either ceased to exist or led the way in real corporate accountability.

    I'm tired of living in a country where so much vile racism is commonplace. These corporations can't claim ignorance to it. At best it is willful blindness and at worst they are guilty of actual racist policies. I don't frequent Denny's often, but they've seen the last of my business.

    *Raises hand* My best friend Shelby and I (we're both trans) eat there all the time when we're together. Denny's never complains about us using the women's room, and this is important, Shelby and I can talk for 4 hours. Denny's doesn't tell us we have to get out of there!

    And this is from North Carolina: A Denny's manager stood up for a trans woman who had the cops called on her for using the bathroom.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Still going pretty strong in Minnesota. Even though it didn't start here, a franchisee here expanded the hell out of them.

    Strange they choose to "identify as white". Cause there's no such thing as "white privilege".
