    White Customers Asked To Pay More

    Food Stall Serves Up A Social Experiment: White Customers Asked To Pay More

    March 2, 2018




    A customer approaches the window at Saartj, a pop-up food stall in New Orleans running a social experiment. Customers of color are charged the listed $12 price for a meal. White customers are told about the income gap in New Orleans between whites and African-Americans and asked whether they want to pay $30 instead, a price that reflects the gap.

    Can a $12 lunch change the way people think about racial wealth disparity in America? How about a $30 lunch? That's the premise behind a social experiment playing out in a New Orleans food stall.

    Chef Tunde Way opened his pop-up stall in the city's Roux Carre venue in early February. The listed price for the Nigerian food is $12. But when white people walk up to order, they are asked whether they want to pay $30. Why? "It's two-and-a half times more than the $12 meal, which reflects the income disparity" between whites and African-Americans in New Orleans, says Wey.

    The median income for African-American households in New Orleans fell from $32,332 in 2000 to $27,812 in 2013 in inflation-adjusted dollars, according to The Data Center's New Orleans Index at Ten. Over the same time, median income for white households in the city remained roughly the same, $61,117 to $60,070. In 2013, the median household income for African-Americans in metro New Orleans was 54 percent lower than for whites.

    Wey says that when customers come up to his window to place an order, he tells them that his food stall aims to engage people on the topic of racial income and wealth disparities and to share statistics on these disparities. He then informs them that customers who identify as white are being asked to pay the higher $30 price to reflect these disparities. Customers also have the option to pay the listed $12 price. The difference between the $12 and $30 meals, all customers are informed, will be redistributed to minorities who buy food at the stall. How do white customers react to the proposition?

    "Some of them are enthusiastic, some of them are bamboozled a bit by it," Wey says. "But the majority of white folks, nearly 80 percent, decided to pay."

    "That was definitely higher than we expected," says Anjali Prasertong, a graduate student in public health at Tulane University who helped Wey design the experiment and collect data.

    Customers who agree to buy lunch were asked to fill out a brief survey online. A subset of these diners were also pulled aside and interviewed about how income and wealth disparities have played out in their own lives.

    Prasertong points to one anecdote from an African-American customer whom she interviewed. "I asked her, 'If you had been given access to more resources while you were growing up, would that have changed your life in any way?' " Prasertong recalls. "She immediately had an example."

    The woman told Prasertong that when she was a college student, she was offered an unpaid summer White House internship in Washington, D.C. But that meant she would have had to find a way to support herself in another city instead of spending the summer earning money that she could use to help pay for school in the fall. The woman passed on the internship, Prasertong says, because "she realized, 'Oh, it's just for rich people' " meaning students whose parents could afford to subsidize them while they worked for free. "She still went on to be successful, but if she'd done that internship, who knows what she'd be doing?"

    "One of the things I took away from interviewing people was a greater awareness that people of color have thought about wealth disparity and how it has touched their lives and the kinds of things they've lost out on because they didn't have access to the resources their white friends did," says Prasertong. "Not that [white people] weren't aware, but they never really thought about how ... that might have affected where they are in the world in relation to people of color. They never stopped to think, 'Oh, that car my parents gave me in college allowed me to drive across town to get a good job.' "

    As Prasertong points out, "It's not a strict scientific study." One limitation of this experiment is that the customers who came to the stall were all in a higher-than-average income bracket. Prasertong says that may be one reason why the vast majority of customers of color African-Americans, Latinos and Asians declined to sign up to receive the redistributed money made from charging whites the higher price.

    As of Feb. 28, the day the premise of the experiment was revealed in a Times-Picayune article, 64 people had completed the survey, which included 32 whites, Prasertong says. Twenty-five white customers paid the extra $18, adding up to a pool of $450. Only six people of color had signed up for distributions, which they would split evenly among them, $75 each.

    The food stall called Saartj, a reference to a 19th-century black South African woman infamously paraded as a "freak show" in Europe will be open through Sunday, though the data collection part of the experiment is now over.

    While this experiment focused on racial income disparity in New Orleans, the numbers when it comes to the racial wealth gap in America are even starker. White families accumulate more wealth more quickly than do families made up of people of color. As NPR's Code Switch team has reported:

    "In 2013, the median white family held 13 times as much net wealth as the median black family and 10 times as much wealth as the median Latino family, according to the Federal Reserve's Survey of Consumer Finances."

    There are many reasons cited behind this gap, including slavery and institutional and governmental discrimination that excluded people of color from programs that helped Americans build wealth and pass it down through the generations. As Code Switch writes: "Segregation and redlining by banks made it impossible for many black and Latino families to secure mortgages, for example. The GI Bill, which helped establish an American middle class by helping veterans pay for college and buy homes after World War II, mostly excluded people of color."

    One goal of his experiment, says Wey, is to get people to think about how the racial wealth and income gaps affect their own lives and also how they can as individuals be a force for change.

    "We think of this as a systemic issue, like something that happens outside of ourselves, when in fact the aggregate sum of all of our actions and choices exacerbates or ameliorates the wealth gap," says Wey. That includes actions like "where we choose to send our children to school, where we choose to buy a home and critically, how we choose to spend our money and where we choose to spend our money. "

    Any white person that would pay more is a stupid lib with white guilt. I don't care if they pay more.

    You are not going to catch me eating there regardless of the price.
    Would someone please let me know how we have spun out of control?
    Has the captain let go of the wheel?
    Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?

    The whites should reach in the window, drag him out, beat him until his brains are oozing out, and steal the food.

    That's the BLACK way...

    Pop up?

    I hope the owner finds the experiment fails to attract any white business.
    Deal with people like that, and you can expect that they have spat in your food.
    I'll bet the business was opened with .gov money. So much for entrepreneurship.
    As someone else pointed out, the $12 comes from .gov money too, so it seems to me that it is the whites who should be offered a discount.

    I'm on Social Security, so I have less money than either the blacks or whites. I couldn't afford to pay even the $12 for lunch.

    So when's the Revolution? God or Money? Choose.

    Well when you drop out of school and/or don't give a tinker's damn about your education or future and decide multigenerational welfare is a good way of life, then yeah - this is the sort of thing that tends to happen.

    Not whitey's fault they're a self-destructive race.

    I'm betting he doesn't have a proper restaurant license and inspection. Eat there, get sick, seek medical treatment and sue the bastard.
    There are at least 2 or 3 ways his ass could have wound up in court.

    Then there is the other alternative. Pull out your gun, dump his food all over him, trash his little stall, and take all the money he collected.
    Tell him you were just self identifying as black and acting appropriately.

    What the article doesn't say is how many people told him to go fu*k himself when told their bill is $30 and not the $12 as advertised.

    What is the adjusted income of blacks when you add in all the government benefits and the fact that they pay much lower if any taxes?

    Well your the one that said to millwright:
    So you are saying you don't like niggers either.

    Welcome to the nigger hating club.
    I just was trying to define your term "nigger" thats all, so I gave 3 options which probably all 3 were wrong. When in grade school for the first time hearing that term it meant "a stupid ignorant person" now it is a used as a derogatory racial overtone towards the black race.

    I tend to only use the word to describe people that are stupid or ignorant trashy types whether they be white, black, brown, or yellow.

    You figure crowder does lots of social experiments on the liberal cities asking a mixed race of people a series of questions and they completely make stuff up in some of their answers and very few people know the answers that are correct.

    He's a nigger because he's a commie turd who thinks the income disparity has nothing to do with IQ or work ethic or family values or 5th generation welfare baby mommas

    I wonder if it ever occurred to the Black "super race" that the reason they're so poor compared to whites is their choice to live as single parents on welfare? I know a number of middle class Blacks that are both educated and married, absolutely no different than married white middle class families. A two income household with two working parents will generally be prosperous and thrive. Simple economics from choosing the moral path (employment and marriage). For some reason our glorious government, media and leaders never seem to notice the obvious. Although in the case of Marxist Progressives, they want a dependent under class so they can stay in power, so they perpetuate the system to keep Blacks "in their place"...oh, the irony!

    Huh.
    the premise that blacks are not able to learn or develop job skills to earn as much as a white man is kinda lazy thinking.
    it is illegal ofr any business to base pay on race.
    pay is generally based on skills, education and experience.

    so this Chef is stating that blacks are not capable of working like whites so they can have a job like whites so white people need to feel sorry for the blacks and give them money.

    if there is income disparity then it is because not enough blacks want to go to school or apprentice or work to get the better paying jobs.

    And if you had charged the blacks $30 and the the whites $12, you would have been called a racist, the NAACP would have done a protest march, Jessie the black ball Jackson would have been all over you like white on rice calling for a lawsuit and Black Lives Matter would have been there to protest and close you down.....

    It's a shed. What kind of "Gournet Meals" is he serving that would be worth $12 much less $30?

    I see that an expect hot dogs, pre-rolled soft tacos and plastic bags of chips, there is no way in hell I'd go there and pay $12-I can do an All-you-can eat Red Lobster for less or a Chinese buffet for a lot less and no be subjected to someone's bullshit about "Inequalities" of this world.

    Nope, A small percentage of blacks who commit crimes actually go to jail for their crimes.
    Even though our jails are overcrowded with blacks, the fact that such a small percentage of black criminals wind up in jail, just shows you how screwed up our legal system is.
    Black people commit crimes like that all the time and get away with it.

    For every attack like I described less than half of the perps are apprehended and even then a lot of them walk instead of going to jail.
    You need some real life experience.

    Probably the same as what the UN gives to starving Ethiopians to refeed them before they die.
    It's called PlumperNutter
    Peanut Butter, Powdered Milk and sugar. Tolerated well by people on the brink of death by starvation.
    Nestle makes it and ships it in dehydrated powered form that stores well and can be rehydrated easily.

    I'd like to get some for survival food

    Great advertising "gimmick" - blacks will patronize his place and gladly pay the $12 for a $4 hunk o'dog because they will think they're sticking it to "whitey" - IF . . . a guilt embedded "white" person buys a meal there it will have a gob of spit in it somewhere. GAAAAGGGGAAAHHH!!
    The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. Abraham Lincoln, 1859

    I see that an expect hot dogs, pre-rolled soft tacos and plastic bags of chips, there is no way in hell I'd go there and pay $12-I can do an All-you-can eat Red Lobster for less or a Chinese buffet for a lot less and no be subjected to someone's bullshit about "Inequalities" of this world.
    Dude, some of the best ribs I ever eat come out of a shed like that in the heart of chattanooga. Family owned and family cooked. We all stood there waiting for the ribs and other food they sold.
