Lawsuit: Black Man Accuses Establishment of Discrimination

An African American man who says he was asked to prepay for his meal at an Oregon restaurant despite white diners not having to has filed a $100,000 discrimination suit.

Brian Eason went to grab a meal at Elmer’s on Dec. 16 of last year. The 44-year-old real estate agent’s lawsuit claims that a waitress took his order, then “demanded that he prepay for his meal,” according to the lawsuit.

“I was kind of curious about it and said ‘Well, is that new?’ And she said ‘Yes, we had a few walk-aways and my boss asked me to ask for prepayment,'” Eason said Wednesday.

Eason didn’t think anything of it until he ordered another drink and the waitress again wanted him to pay in advance. “I said ‘This is kind of odd that I have to prepay every time I order my food and drink,'” Eason recounted. “She said, ‘I think it’s discrimination and my boss is here, and she’s forcing me to have me do this.'”
