03a-24-couple-415.jpgA student and his girlfriend are outraged after being called a “black couple” on their receipt by staff at a London pub.Johnson Abraham, 24, and Roxanne Duhur, 21, claim they were the only couple dining when they received their bill at the Slug and Lettuce in Islington Green.Mr Abraham, a mechanical engineering student from Dalston, was at the pub last month with Ms Duhur to celebrate her new job as an estate agent.They ordered at the bar, without a table number, before going upstairs to find a seat. When they went to pay for the meal the comment “upstairs blk couple” was printed on the bill.Mr Abraham said: “I was outraged. They wouldn't have written white couple'. I do class it as racism. It spoiled what should have been a celebration.”Slug and Lettuce area manager Nick O'Donnell said: “We often put a note on orders to help reduce the chances of it being sent to the wrong table."I agree the language was inappropriate. I apologise for the upset caused.”Mr O'Donnell offered the couple a free meal with champagne, but Mr Abraham said: “I want an apology. The manager apologised but the waitress hasn't.”

I can see how it could be construed as racism but no, I don't think it is. It is unpleasant however.

No. Insecurity that's all. Its just easy to spot a black couple. And why are they begin for an apology. Are they black leaders or something?

Black people are bothered by this?
I think the sweeping generalisation would be more bothersome.
