A Christian waiter at a restaurant in Texas was denied a tip and told on the bill note “we don’t tip terrorist,” presumably because of his Arabic name.
The waiter has said that he sees the situation as a test of faith, but said that Jesus Christ died on the cross for racists as well.
Khalil Cavil, 20, who works for Saltgrass Steak House in Odessa, wrote about his experience on Sunday in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.
“Last night at work I received this note from one of my tables. At the moment I didn’t know what to think nor what to say, I was sick to my stomach. I share this because I want people to understand that this racism, and this hatred still exists. Although this is nothing new, it is still something that will test your faith,” Cavil wrote, with a link to the bill receipt in which the unnamed customer had circled the name “Khalil” and wrote with a pen, “we don’t tip terrorist.”
“All day I’ve had to remind myself that Jesus died for these people too. I have decided to let this encourage me, and fuel me to change the world the only way I know how. So to all the haters out there, keep talkin, [you’re] only helping me step into my destiny,” the waiter added.
Cavil told a local news station in Midland that he was named after a friend of his father who was killed in an accident while serving in the military.
The story has since been picked up by several news outlets, with the post gaining over 22,000 responses on Facebook.
