A restaurant is charging white customers more to highlight racial wealth inequality

A restaurant in New Orleans is hoping to raise awareness of racial wealth differences in the country by charging white customers more.

SAARTJ is a pop-up restaurant in the Louisiana city run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey who will be charging white customers $18 (£13) extra for their meal.

Much like the cafe in Melbourne, Australia which charged a 'man-tax' due to the gender pay gap, SAARTJ is charging an increase to highlight the racial pay gap in New Orleans.

In 2013, a study found that the average household income of an African-American in the city was 54 per cent lower than that of a white person.

That of course is discrimination and is illegal. Any white person who goes in that restaurant is crazy. Lets see if he can make it with only black customers? I doubt it.We need to send his black a$$ back to nigeria where he came from.

Pretty simple, you get paid what you are worth. You set your value. Period.
