Crushcakes was hit twice this morning for their Tip Jar in Santa Barbara. The first time was a white male adult (WMA) in his late 20's, 5'9" and wearing a jacket and a red flannel blanket. He was last seen West Bound on Victoria.

A friend told me her daughter applied for a scholarship offered to Spanish kids. Her parents were from Spain so she was definitely Spanish. She was told the offer was only for Mexicans. Make any sense?

I was corrected once by a friend who is Hispanic. She is from Mexico but her family is 100% Spanish from Spain. She told me she considered herself white, and she was insulted that I would think anything other than that.

Aren't Hispanics of European descent white? Wikipedia: "In the United States, a White Hispanic is an American citizen or resident who is racially white and of Hispanic descent. The term white, itself an official U.S. racial category, refers to people "having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe".

Hispanic means they originally came from Hispania or the Iberian Peninsula. Wiki sort of makes things up, check their disclaimer or "needs conformation". At any rate it means from there and here it means Spanish speaker although if from Portugal they are definitely not Spanish speakers and as my Brazilian friends will tell you they won't usually speak it unless absolutely necessary.......Anyway it's not about race as Hispanics can be any race or mixed just like Latinos or Central American Spanish speakers.

Hispanic means your mother tongue is spanish. Latino means you are of descent from somewhere in Latin America. There are Hispanics who are not Latino, and there are Latinos who are not Hispanic (such as folks from Brazil. Their mother tongue would be Portuguese, not Spanish).

No Hispanics are not white they would be horrified how could you even think that, My DOG!

My understanding that in Europe, when one goes to a restaurant, they do not tip (so I was told.) Maybe they do now. I have never been to Europe. Could have been a couple of homeless guys.

it's getting a bit more common to tip. General rule if you enjoyed your meal and the service was good, you leave a tip @ 5-10%

When I go into coffee shops or other places that brandish tip jars, quite often the jar contains a goodly amount of cash. Flush with bills. More than once I've thought about asking an employee if it wasn't time to unload the cash and not have it there to tempt people. But, after once having a woman accuse me of larcenous scheming thinking because I warned her against keeping her open handbag (+wallet in plain view) unattended in her grocery cart, I now bite my tongue.

The accumulating cash in tip jars, the wallet in the open purse in the shopping cart, things that normal honest people would never worry about apparently whisper to the grifters and thieves until the temptation is just too much. Not to worry, $haria law lops off the stealing hand. That'll fix 'em.

RR Tracks, Mission Creek, Westside Center, West Victoria Street, West Anapamu Street bridge, Bohnett Park -- the new vagrant crime corridor. Patrol this area carefully and fix the fences. Daily.

If you are willing to pay 20 dollars for a cupcake or 13.00 for a cup of coffee then sure let’s take away to tips.Nobody can pay a living wage selling cupcakes.

Tips are for customers who want to show appreciation; wages are what workers accept if they want the job. Not related.

Time for Crushcakes to do away with the jar. Time to crack down on vagrants wearing blankets. Alas.

This proliferation of tip jars is an embarrassment . Seeding a jar with a 5$ or a 10$ is a joke.

The 1st guy must have told the 2nd one what a score he made. Ripping off people who actually work for their money.

Oh come on you residents of The People's Republic of Santa Barbara... Don't you want your fellow humans (in this case, no doubt vagrants) to live with what they desire...? A cold "40" or a "rock" of Meth heaven...? I am sure those that are in the S.B. State Street Marching Against #%&@* would gladly help this poor fellow(s) out... You get what you deserve people- Deal with it or DO something about it...

LOL...whites are a minority in California. They aren't even a majority if you remove all other races and just compare white and hispanics. It's only whitewashed to you because you are segregating yourself from other cultures in your own little bubble.

@155, I wouldn't say CA is whitewashed (been to any big city lately?) but SB, kinda. That was my first thought when moving here from the northeast - something felt off - then I realized that there weren't many black people. It was weird.

@ A-155 What the ---- are you talking about...? More than 40% of the population of S. Cal is "white"... You are insane.

Roger, CA is very whitewashed compared to other places especially on the East Coast. When I first moved here, I was amazed at how whitewashed it is. Very few people of color here. Except maybe in places like certain parts of LA but how many folks "of color" do you see here? Not many.

Roger Mar 28, 2019 03:05 PM

Someone has a resentment because they no longer love California and they are running away to another state where no people of color live except for his own kind in the Garden of Eden of Murica...

It sucks these people work hard serving others only to have their tips ripped off by free loading scum.

Legally and ethically, the servers still must be paid their tips earned (or an estimation), it is not on the employees to bear the consequences of a crime committed against the business. The business has insurance to cover this type of thing.
