The following article, ‘Jim Crow’ Cracker Barrel Is the Left’s Latest Target — ‘Why Do Black PPL Eat’ There, Asks Woman, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Just watch. Cracker Barrel didn’t need the leftist mob coming after it to make the restaurant chain more popular. But it most likely will.
Can I get an amen or what, Chick-fil-A?
For some reason, completely out of the blue, Cracker Barrel is now racist. Anybody want to guess why?

From Pop Culture:
The ongoing protests in response to the death of George Floyd have not only called for widespread police reform, but have also re-opened a lot of conversations on racism throughout the U.S. Such is the case with Cracker Barrel, the Tennessee-based restaurant chain, and a lawsuit it settled back in 2004.
As Fox News reported at the time, Cracker Barrel settled a number of lawsuits filed by or supported by the NAACP, citing the chain’s numerous allegations of racism toward customers and employees for $8.7 million. Among the lawsuits, customers in 16 states said they were subjected to racial slurs, served food taken from the trash and segregated them due to their race. The settlement came just months after the chain had settled another lawsuit with the Justice Department, which made similar claims. Now, stories about Cracker Barrel have begun recirculating online.
In 2004 Cracker barrel settled a discrimination lawsuit because- allowed white servers to refuse to wait on African-American customers;
– segregated customer seating by race;
– seated white customers before African-American customers who arrived earlier.
