A Detroit-area waitress was pleasantly surprised Monday night when the black man she had served left her a tip.

Emily Anderson of Roseville, MI has been a waitress at a local restaurant for 18 months, and, according to her, a black customer has never left her a tip.

"It's something black people just don't do," said Anderson. "Ask any server you know, and they'll tell you that black people don't leave tips."

Anderson acknowledged that even the black waitresses whom she works with dread waiting on black customers because of their tendency not to tip.

"I work with a lot of black girls. They're my good friends," Anderson said, "and they'll even tell you that black people don't tip."

On Monday night, though, when Anderson went to collect the gentleman's check, he told her to keep the change.

"It wasn't an 'Oh, my God! Post it on social media'-tip," she said. "But it was a decent tip. And coming from a black person, I guess you could call it a great tip."

Anderson pointed out that there are many countries around the world where tipping a server is not the norm, which she compared to black people in the United States not tipping.

"I'm not racist at all. In fact, my ex-boyfriend was black," Anderson said. "Which really made me realize that the only big tip coming from a black guy will be in his pants. And I'm not talking about his wallet."
