Race-Based Pizza Delivery
I'm white, and so it just came to my attention that out of about 12 pizza places within a 5 mile radius of my house, only Domino's, Pizza Hut, and an expensive local chain will actually deliver to me. My neighbor told me it's because we live near Braggtown, a predominantly black area. I was in shock. I live in NC, but I hail originally from the Chicagoland area, where I was under the impression that pizza places that didn't deliver soon went out of business. Has anyone else heard about/ experienced anything like this?!
(And kudos to my local mom-and-pop Indian restaurant for delivering to me. Love you, Kebab n' Curry!)
