Major Protest Tmrw @ Houstons Steakhouse Over Racism
By Jack Barnes
Atlanta residents will protest Houston’s Steakhouse tomorrow over multiple accounts of alleged racism inflicted upon patrons who are people of color. This will be the second demonstration in Atlanta led by local actress, poet and business owner, Ernestine Johnson.
The protests were triggered after Johnson made an Instagram post claiming she and her large party were discriminated against. Atlanta hip-hop artist T.I. immediately launched a boycott of the restaurant chain, who’s parent company is Hillstone Restaurant Group. More artists including Rick Ross and Tiny Harris have joined the effort.
On his official Instagram account, T.I. stated, “OK, so I’ve heard four different stories from four different sources about discrimination against us at two separate Houston’s Steakhouse locations in my city,” he said in an initial post about the protest. “Tomorrow we get answers. #HoustonsWeHaveAProblem.”
