Liberal Claims Tipping is Slavery – Rebutted!
This video by “Louder With Crowder” debunks the myths presented in Isabell Niu’s video on Fusion. The follow up by “Louder With Crowder’s” Steven Crowder goes through the Fusion video and takes to task the various points.
One of the claims portrayed on the Fusion video was that tipping started in America, and was tied to slavery. That was proven to be false, though, as the roots of tipping actually began with European aristocrats. Crowder’s research found evidence of tipping going back as far as the Middle Ages, proving the practice and what we think of as slavery do not, in fact, go hand-in-hand at all.
Crowder continues by refuting the claim that tipping institutionally discriminates against black workers. While there is data that suggests blacks in service roles may actually make less money, there is nothing to suggest racism is the reason.
Crowder points out that according to data, black Americans tip less than their white counterparts. Since these workers tend to work and live in more minority-rich environments, it stands to reason that they might make less because other black Americas are tipping them less, not because of the color of their skin as it is portrayed in Fusion’s video.
To prove his point, Crowder highlights a study authored by Dr. Michael Lynn that showed, “The average tip from a black customer is about 13% of the bill. The average tip from a white customer is about 16.5% of the bill.”
