This is unconscionable. Any lovers of freedom who still live in the Detroit area should patronize the 1917 American Bistro as frequently as they possibly can. Don Studvent is simply a businessman. Period. He wasn’t making a political statement by catering the Trump event. He was just plying his trade and earning a living. But the totalitarian left wants to crush all dissent, and destroy anyone and everyone who dares even to show any humanity toward those whom it hates. And so Studvent’s business is being boycotted. Boycotters “are saying that because of Trump’s rocky relationship with the Black community, no Black-owned business should do business with him or his family members.” What rocky relationship? Black unemployment is at record lows. But the facts don’t matter to the left.
“Black-Owned Restaurant Facing Boycott After Catering a Trump Event,” Blackbusiness.org, November 11, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
Chef Don Studvent, a Black business owner in Detroit, Michigan, is under fire for catering an event for Donald Trump’s son. His 7-year old restaurant, the 1917 American Bistro, serves well-prepared dishes ranging from grilled shrimp, salmon and chicken to blackened or deep-fried catfish. But they are facing a potential boycott by other African Americans and other protestors against Donald Trump’s presidency….
People began accusing him of “selling out” and postings on Facebook started to appear calling for people to boycott his restaurant and catering service.
Business is business… right?
Studvent believes that “business is business” and has nothing to do with politics, but the public has turned the event into a political issue. They are saying that because of Trump’s rocky relationship with the Black community, no Black-owned business should do business with him or his family members….
The bad publicity has left Studvent’s restaurant almost empty lately. He is hoping that it all blows over soon, and that he gets his former customers back. He says that the whole thing is unfair, and very hurtful to his company and his employees.
“I don’t deserve this crap,” Studvent told WYYZ.com.
