- A Burger King manager was told to “go back to Mexico” for speaking Spanish in a Florida fast food restaurant
- Huh, um, uh oh, she said what.
Thanks to Sarkes Corner Florida Bureau Correspondent and sister Cindy Mamelian for another Head Scratching story about a couple of Florida Crackerettes.
The General Manager of a Burger King restaurant in Florida was told by an old White Crackerette customer to “go back to Mexico” if he wanted to keep speaking Spanish.
General Manager Ricardo Castillo, who is of Puerto Rican descent, was berated by two unidentified Crackerttes as they were eating in the restaurant in Eustis, FL, 40 miles north of Orlando.
“You’re in America, you should speak American English,” one Crackerette yelled at Manager Castillo. She continued: ”Yeah, yeah, go back to Mexico if you want to keep speaking Spanish, go back to your Mexican country, your state, your country.”
Huh, um, uh oh, she said what.
These Florida Crackerttes took a play out of the Conservative Queen Sarah Palin playbook. Queen Palin once said that Hispanics in the US should speck “American”.
Burger King customer Neyzha Borrero recorded the heated exchange stating that the Crackeretts complained to the manager because he spoke Spanish in front of them. Castillo was doing some paperwork at a table when one of his employees came and spoke with him in Spanish. Borrero stated: ”The two ladies were next to the manager, and after the employee left, they told Castillo they wanted to complain.”
Thinking it was about the meal, the manager offered to give them credit or a free dessert, Borrero said. But instead, they said that he shouldn’t be speaking Spanish in public because “we are in the USA.” After being told to go back to Mexico, Castillo can be heard saying, “Guess what ma’am, I’m not Mexican, I’m not Mexican but you’re being very prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant, right now.”
A spokesman for Burger King said: “There is no place for discrimination in our restaurants. We expect employees and guests to treat each other with respect. This incident took place at a franchised restaurant and the owner is looking into the matter.”
Sarkes cannot tell the exact age of the unidentified Racist Crackerttes, but they do look old. As such, they will probably have made their Celestial Exit by the time Hispanics become the majority in 2040 and the White Man is a Minority.
Sarkes always digs deeper into such stories. Sarkes thinks that the Old White Women were just practicing for an upcoming Trump Rally by chanting: “Send Him Back!, Send Him Back!, Send Him Back!”.
