ATLANTA, GA — For well over a year now, we here at Melanoid Nation have gone to great lengths to provide you with information on a plethora of Black businesses, regardless of whether they’re small business, mid-size business, or large businesses. We have constantly ‘beat the drum’ by informing (and encouraging) you on how and where to patronize Black-owned businesses, and the following story is yet another example of why we in Black Society don’t have a choice but to support those who support us.
Ben Hill Custom Cleaners is a dry cleaning service located in the Metro Atlanta area, and it is owned by a non-Melanoid person. A Black man and his son pulled up to the drive-thru to pick up his dry cleaned clothes, and was met with an extremely rude reception by the business’s owner. Check out the video below to see the the whole scenario unfold for yourself.
There is an old saying that goes, “Go where you are celebrated, not tolerated”. In this case, the owner of Ben Hill Custom Cleaners did not even display the slightest inkling of tolerance for his Black customer(s). Black Society, are THESE the types of people who you trust to give you exemplary customer service?
