    doinbizzness- You've got to be kidding. If they were white, they would have said so. If they were Hispanic, you would know that too. It was all part of the physical description. And 'let the racism begin'? I don't know when I have ever seen racism slip past the moderators, but good luck.

    My husband and I have eaten at this KFC twice and it's scary to go through the drive-thru let alone go inside! I almost had to call the cops once because some woman was panhandling in the drive-thru and wouldn't leave me alone. The area is just bad.

    rrnjmm1999 - I agree with you. How is the article supposed to read? "two men whose ethnicity we cannot disclose due to possible accusations of racism, entered the restaurant just before 8:30 a.m. Oct. 18 and demanded money"?

    I'm more alarmed by the time the holdup took place. 8:30AM? That's a good 2 hours before the store opens. Don't stores still make late night cash deposites also? If so, the robbers *should* have only seen the till from a register. Unless KFC does breakfast, there's absolutely NO reason these two thugs should have even been inside the store to rob them! Management and staff could be there early, but.....Potential inside job set up perhaps???
