SALON EMPLOYEE REFERS TO ASIAN CUSTOMER AS "CHINKY EYES"
« on: December 23, 2018, 02:24:18 PM »
So you sit down in the salon chair to get your hair done... and get smacked in the head with some every day racism. That's what happened to an Asian woman who recently saw herself described as "chinky eyes" on a receipt at a Manhattan hair salon. Yup, the racial receipt. We know it well.

Briana Tae was getting her hair blown out at the Drybar in Murray Hill in anticipation of her upcoming nursing school pinning ceremony. But when she saw the receipt slip describing her service, she saw that under the category "Description" one of the employees had scrawled the derogatory slur to describe her.

"I'm sorry, what?" Tae wrote in a Facebook post, sharing a photo of the receipt. "I was the ONLY customer waiting with my friend and rather than describe me by my hair that was in a bun or by my black jacket or as a girl with a friend, I was described as a girl with chinky eyes."


Tae confronted the employee who wrote the slur, but the woman apparently didn't see a problem with it.

"She could not understand why it was an issue and why it was highly inappropriate to write such a description," Tae says. "She tried to make me feel somewhat better by saying she had chinky eyes too."

She doesn't really have chinky eyes from what I see. I can see why there would be outrage at the mis-description....
