Report: Georgia Interracial Couple Upset After “Jungle Fever” Written on Key Chain
Hmm… Fake or Hate?
A Georgia interracial couple says they are very upset after a valet parking attendant reportedly wrote “jungle fever” on their key chain.
A Georgia couple says they’re still in shock after they were the target of racism at a popular local restaurant.
A U.S. Army sergeant major just back from Kuwait and his wife went to Spondivits in East Point on New Year’s Day, but what they found on their key ring when they got home left them deeply hurt.
“I shouldn’t have to feel this way,” said Candea Aarons.
When Candea and her husband Sam got home they noticed the tag left by the man who they say valet parked their car, with the words “jungle fever,” a derogatory slur used to describe interracial couples.
“We have never been so blatantly described in such a blatantly appalling manner ever,” Candea Aarons said.
Aarons said the ugly message left her and her husband deeply hurt.
“We had no idea that the valet was looking at us or thinking of us in such a manner,” she said.
