EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Olive Garden has fired the manager of one of its restaurants in southwestern Indiana who was accused of complying with a white customer’s demand to replace her table’s black server with one who wasn’t black. Olive Garden spokeswoman Meagan Bernstein said yesterday that the company doesn’t tolerate discrimination and decided to “separate with the manager involved” after completing its investigation of the incident last weekend at the restaurant in Evansville. Amira Donahue, a black 16-year-old host, says the manager complied with a female customer’s demands that her group’s black server be replaced with a non-black one.
