Three Texas women who were seen in a video allegedly attacking a NYC restaurant hostess after their vaccination cards were questioned said they were racially profiled and called the n-word.

The trio, who are black, are now claiming their unnamed 24 year-old hostess, who is Asian, was actually the aggressor, and have called for her to be fired.

They spoke out two days after Thursday's incident at popular Upper West Side restaurant Carmines. Restaurant staff jumped in to defend their coworker, who was left with viruses and scratches, with footage of the brawl making headlines across the United States.

Since then, lawyers for the women and the restaurant exchanged words, and Hawk Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter NY, said they plan to hold a protest on Monday.

Texas civil rights lawyer Justin Moore told Daily News, 'This hostess clearly has some anger management issues and unfortunately her aggression and her violence led to something that three Black women are being punished for.'

A lawyer for Carmine's denied the Texas women's accusation.

These differences in interpretation are what investigations, courts of law, and jury trials are for. Does not look good for the tourists, however.

This is turning into a media dog's breakfast.

The three black women are claiming they had proof of vaccination but the asian hostess insisted their vaccination certificates were fake because they were black.
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/18/nyre ... fight.html

Footage shows three women had, in fact, provided documentation of Covid vaccinations. The altercation began after two men who joined their party several minutes later were unable to provide proof, the lawyers for both sides said.

Several minutes later, three men arrive to join the group, but only one of the three shows a vaccination card, lawyers for both sides said. A short time later, after the three women, who are Black, have joined the men outside, the fight breaks out.

Justin Moore, a lawyer who represents one of the women, Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, said that the hostess used a racial slur and spoke condescendingly to the patrons, suggesting that their vaccination cards were fake.

This suggest the Asian hostess may have told little "white lies"

It's crazy that the hostess was assaulted for asking for proof of vaccination. That's what I said.
