“No Confederate Flag is Going to Keep Me Away”: Black Woman Eats at Racist Diner For Tasty BBQ Sauce
by Yvette Carnell
Would you eat at a restaurant owned by racists just because you loved the BBQ sauce? No thinking black person would, but Teowonna Clifton does.
The restaurant in question is ‘Maurice’s’ in South Carolina, and the owner flies a Confederate flag over his establishment, and passes out literature such as “The Biblical Defense for Slavery”, but none of that stops Ms. Clifton from chowing down:
“I know, I know. Black people are not supposed to eat at Maurice’s. But I disobeyed that unwritten law years ago. The best thing about Maurice’s is the amazing sauce. Coming from North Myrtle Beach, my family was accustomed to vinegar-based sauces. Mustard-based sauce was unheard of. When I tried Maurice’s for the first time, I was hooked — and no Confederate flag was going to keep me away.”
So if you’re ever wondering why the rest of the world doesn’t take us seriously, just think of Teowonna Clifton, who puts a BBQ sandwich ahead of the suffering of her ancestors, and happily hands over her black dollar to a man who believes she should still be in shackles.
You may be able to take a Negro off the plantation, but you can’t always take the plantation out of the Negro. One gets the unsettling feeling that Teowonna Clifton wouldn’t be all that displeased if this were 1812 instead of 2012. A slave mentality knows no time.
