CIAA Accuses Ritz-Carlotn Hotel in North Carolina of Racist Actions

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) was very upset after what they thought was a “black” surcharge was added to their bill while staying at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in North Carolina.

The CIAA is an organization made up of a majority of African American’s, and was confused why they were charged an additional 15 percent because they have never received such a charge from previous visits.

According to WBTV, the charge was named, and was given to those who weren’t even associated with the organization. One diner, Patrice Wright stated, “When she [a Ritz-Carlton server] brought the receipt, there was a CIAA surcharge that was included. And we thought that’s interesting because we have frequented the establishment several times and never had any surcharge that was associated with any organization that was in town.”

The hotel then addressed the issue by stating, “Due to the size of the CIAA event, we instituted a modest 15% service charge for our lobby beverage servers, on whom the event places significant demands throughout the weekend.”

After questioning from multiple parties the hotel finally released an official apology for the incident saying, “We would like to apologize to any guests we may have offended by the addition of a service charge we implemented at a recent event in our lobby lounge. The service charge was not intended to single out any particular group or organization and we deeply regret any misunderstanding this may have caused. It is important for all guests to feel welcomed at our hotel and for them to receive the highest level of service, respect and hospitality we strive for every day.”
