Emergency call on Blacks for what is termed ‘stupid’ may never seize to exist, as a Subway employee called the police on a Black family enjoying their dinner, with claims that they pose security threats to the restaurant.
The whites female worker of the store which is located at Newman in Georgia, alerted 911 raising alarm on the family because she had the impression that the family visited the restroom a suspicious number of times.
The employee whose name was withheld, alleges that her believe was the family was planning to rob the restaurant.
It was, however, gathered that the Dobson were on their way home from their grandmother’s birthday party when Othniel and Felicia Dobson, along with their children, aged 19, 13, 12, and 8, stopped to have dinner.
“One employee, a white woman named Sandra, wasn’t that friendly — it seemed like she was making our sandwiches begrudgingly — but we didn’t pay much attention,” Felicia, 40, told Yahoo Lifestyle. “We paid for our food, sat at a table, and I read a few pages of my book.”
Following Felicia’s defense of the family, Sandra has since been placed ok administrative leave by her employer.
In a statement made available to the public, spokeswoman for Subway says, “Respect for every individual is a core value of Subway. It is our expectation and each Franchisee’s goal to make sure that every guest will always be treated with the respect and integrity they deserve.

“I take this very seriously and I am fully investigating. I have interviewed all employees involved and will reach out to the family to offer my sincerest apology. I have also used this opportunity to reiterate to my staff the importance of making everyone feel welcome and providing great customer service.” Rosh Patel, the franchise owner adds.
