WOW, THIS STORY IS GOING TO TAKE THE WEB BY STORM. YOU JUST KNOW THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA IS GOING TO RUN WITH THIS ONE… JUST KIDDING YOU WILL NEVER HEAR ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT TRUMP OR A TRUMP SUPPORTER ON THE NEWS. LOOK UP THE STATISTICS, CONSERVATIVES DO EXPONENTIALLY MORE CHARITY THAN LIBERALS, IT’S JUST HOW WE ARE WIRED.
LIFTABLE Reports: Most of us take a few moments to decide whether to tip 15 or 20 percent when we receive the bill at a restaurant. But one group of customers at Busboys & Poets in Washington D.C. scrapped those usual numbers and, instead, aimed much, much higher.
Waitress Rosalynd Harris, who is black, found herself waiting on a table of white Texan men wearing cowboy hats. Just a few days earlier, Rosalynd had participated in the Women’s March; the men were in town for Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Seeing as they were coming from very different perspectives during such a contentious political season, their interactions could have been uncomfortable, to say the least. However, everything turned out to be quite the opposite.
After the men left, Rosalynd was shocked to see the numbers on the receipt: a $450 tip for a “subtotal” of $72.60. Along with this amazing tip, came a note.
The handwritten note read: “We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless!”

“You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you,” Rosalyn shared. “But (these men are) more embracing than even some of my more liberal friends, and there was a real authenticity in our exchange. This definitely reshaped my perspective. Republican, Democrat, liberal are all subcategories to what we are experiencing. It instills a lot of hope.”
