Samuel and Candea Aarons dropped off their car to celebrate the New Year at Spondivits Bar and Grill, a popular restaurant in Atlanta. Their car was parked by the valet, according to local station WSB-TV.

Now generally, once your car is returned, any “tag” is removed – as it was only used for ID purposes; but when the Aaron’s got home, they noticed a tag was still on their key ring with a little note from the valet that read: “Jungle Fever.”

For the uninformed: “Jungle fever” is a derogatory term used to describe interracial couples.

The valet, alleged to have left the message, was a black man employed by APS Valet – not the restaurant. He was fired less than 24-hours later.

Needless to say, the Aarons were outraged.

“I’ve never had their tag left on the key,” Mrs Aarons said. “He wanted us to see it.”

Sgt Major Aarons, a military veteran who recently returned from a deployment in Kuwait, was also deeply upset by the note.

“We have never been so blatantly described in such a blatantly appalling manner ever,” Mrs Aarons said.

“We had no idea that the valet was looking at us or thinking of us in such a manner.

“I was unaware, I was unprepared and I was unaware racism is alive and well.”

  1. I was unaware racism is alive and well.” Please!!!! That is the reason we as blacks need to take our race seriously. Whites never will. Sleeping with the enemy has not done good things for our race.
