Texas cookie store SUSPENDS teenage employee who paid for cop's brownie after another customer called him RACIST for not receiving same treatment!

A Texas teenager who was fired after he paid for a brownie for a police officer in line at his cookie stand will be reinstated.

Zachary Randolph, 18, is an employee at Great American Cookies in the Katy Mills Mall in Katy, Texas. But his employment was in jeopardy for a few days after a moment of generosity on the job.
One week ago, a police officer came to Great American Cookies and ordered a brownie, a $2.75 purchase. Randolph offered to pay for the officer’s brownie out of his own money. The police officer thanked him and walked away.

It was the conduct of the next family in line that got Randolph in trouble. When they got to the counter, they asked if he’d be paying for them, too. In a viral Facebook post, Randolph’s mother said her son’s job was threatened and that he was accused of being racist:

My son replied with “I’m sorry I bought his because he is wearing a badge”…… then this customer started verbally attacking him, calling my son a racist, & threatened to beat him up. His wife threatened to go back there and slap him.. The middle aged man sat down his little daughter and tried to come behind the counter to attack him. Thankfully his coworker defused the situation. The man then said “I will get you fired.”

 The next day, Randolph was summoned to a meeting with his manager and upper manager. While upper management supposedly wanted him fired for the incident, his direct manager would not fire him, saying he was a good worker and under consideration for management at the time of the incident.

No good deed goes unpunished, and they did issue Randolph a warning and a one-week suspension. Not everyone agreed; Zachary certainly didn’t.

“A lot of people I know my age don’t support police officers. I don’t think it’s fair,” he told Fox26 Houston.

But things were about to change again. As the story got more attention, Great American Cookies executives got the decision reversed. Biju George, the owner and operator of the Katy Mills Great American Cookies, issued this statement:

On behalf of Great American Cookies Katy Mills, we owe the employee an apology. It was never an issue that he purchased a brownie for a police officer, but rather the events that unfolded with another customer in line at the time. However, after further review, we realize that the employee was in fact in the right and we continue to reach out to him and his mom to issue an apology. The corrective action and suspension was reversed immediately and we hope to connect with him today.
In an emailed statement to the Houston Chronicle, Great American Cookies Executive Vice President David Kaiser wrote:

Great American Cookies proudly supports Law Enforcement, First Responders and all who serve our country. […] Though our stores are independently managed and operated, when the situation first arose, we reached out to the franchisee to ensure that the situation was addressed and handled appropriately.


  1. Those darn Inuit! Always causing trouble with their fake charges of racism! Oh, wait... Now that I think about it, the Inuit have not caused much trouble. Maybe it was the Indigenous Patagonians. No, that does not sound right either...

    OK, you get the point.

    They clearly show the race of the young man (Caucasian) but seem mysteriously silent on the race of the trouble making self-entitled family. Why is that? Are there any readers who did not immediately picture an African-American couple and their child? Why is that? Is it maybe because years of observation have informed us all of what the most likely chance is?

    Please, please, please! To all my African American brothers and sisters who may read this, please listen up! As a young man in the 1960s I was a strong supporter of the civil rights movement -- and that was not always a pleasant stance to take back then. I was excited to think that we were moving to a society that would "judge people on the content of their character and not on the colour of their skin." Well, it is half a century later and the judgement is in. The black community has utterly failed to step up and become equal partners with the whites and Asians. Look at the out of wedlock child birth statistics. Look at the crime statistics. Look at drug use statistics. Look at the scholastic levels of black students. White people didn't cause any of that. Yelling "RACISM!" is the all too common response to anyone who points out the truth.

    When America was prosperous the non-black community could afford the losses incurred by giving black non-performers a pass. Today, times are getting rough, money is getting tight and the days of buying off the black community with more free stuff are almost over. The rest of America is getting pissed off and if we ever see a race war it will not last long. White folk have a long fuse but remember -- they are the people who wiped out Dresden and burned Hiroshima to ashes. Don't get in a race war.

    Please, please, please, to the black community in America. Police yourself, don't stand up for troublemakers, don't make excuses for thugs and thieves. It may already be too late, but unless the majority of African Americans of this country do a quick U-turn to self responsibility, things may get VERY ugly.

  2. Jason isn't but apparently you are.

  3. that rapier, sardonic wit is just too much for me! how do you do it? how does that steel trap mind come up with such literary genius?? please. please, regale this board with more of that intelligence!

  4. ^^The Iibtard is strong in this one.

  5. I am not much for literature and wit, I am more of a facts and figures kind of guy.
    Sorry that I can't amuse you.


    What would happen if all Blacks suddenly left America…which would be 13.3% of our total population?
    The prison population would go down by 73%,
    There would be 63% less gang members,
    Obesity percentage would drop 21%,
    Average IQ would go up 10.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan,
    Average SAT scores would go up almost 100 points,
    Average ACT scores would go up 5.5 points.
    AIDS & HIV would go down by 65%,
    Chlamydia cases would go down 54%,
    Gonorrhea would go down 69%,
    Syphilis would go down 58%.
    The average income for Americans would go up over $20,000 a year,
    Amount of people in poverty would drop 34%,
    Homelessness would go down 57%,
    Welfare recipients would go down by 42%,
    And Democrats Would Lose 76% Of Their Voting Base.

    Have a nice day.

  6. you're not much for history either, are you? you think slavery ended in 1865? you think social engineering has nothing to do with all the "facts" you cited?

    you know nothing of which you purport to speak. take that white sheet off your head and maybe you'll "see" a little better.

  7. It doesn't take a "genius" to recognize an "idiot" when they see one.
    Satisfied Mr. Brainiac?

  8. Apparently you're a racist also. Not too bright either.

  9. I salute you sir. You are part of the solution.

  10. Inuits ?? Patagonian ?? Humm I think they were Swedes of african appearance ?? Those darn swedes ??

  11. oohhhh.... that hurt! you don't disappoint, I'll give ya that! now why don't you go slap your mamma for letting the best part of you drip down her hind leg.

  12. Why would I want to go hide behind a woman cop's dress when I can smell your stench coming from you hiding there. You're afraid aren't you boy?

  13. In my earlier comment I said: "Yelling "RACISM!" is the all too common response to anyone who points out the truth."

    Keysbum says to PJ: "take that white sheet off your head and maybe you'll "see" a little better."

    That pretty well proves my point.

    All those black people killing black people? Gotta be because of white racism... All those black children with no black father to help raise them? Gotta be because of white racism. All those black students in black schools with black teachers and black principals and black mayors and yet they still can't read at a third grade level? White people did that. Gotta be white racism.

    Sure there are a lot of factors for all those things, but white racism is way, way down the list. After fifty years of observation, including going to a majority black high school, a majority black college and living for the last 15 years in a majority black neighborhood, I think I have seen enough to come to a decision. Here is why so many (not all) black people have failed in this life. You ready? Black parents do not say, "YOU'RE WHAT?!" Go ahead and laugh if it makes you feel better.

    Most (not all) whites and Asian parents, when their child says "I'm going to go hang out with my friends" respond with "YOU"RE WHAT?! Did you finish that homework from math class? No? You finish that first, THEN you go see your friends!"

    Most (not all) whites and Asian parents, when their child says "I'm
    going to go see Jimmy, I'll be back later" respond with "YOU"RE WHAT?! Jimmy?! Jimmy is a punk. Jimmy was already arrested once and I know he drinks. You stay away from Jimmy. Besides, you have chores to do right here at home."

    Most (not all) black parents don't say YOU"RE WHAT?! or don't say it enough. It is child abuse not to say YOU'RE WHAT?!, but way too many black children do not have a father at home, and many don't have a mother around either. Maybe their grandmother is raising them, and she is too old or too tired. The reason may be irrelevant but the child suffers anyway, and eventually the child become an adult who cannot read, cannot keep a job, thinks following the rules of society is for chumps and worst of all, worst of all, is completely unprepared to be a parent of his or her own children.

    Blame it on whatever factors you wish, but the truth is, the current situation is untenable. There will be massive tears, but what can't go on won't go on.

  15. What does my comment have to do with history, slavery or social engineering? How could you possibly infer that I do not know of these things?
    If I erred in what I said, then by all means correct the error, mere assertions have no weight.
    It is so transparent and childish to attempt to connect me to the Klan, and yet that is the best refutation that you can come up with.
    Please by all means give me facts or figures to help me 'see' better.
    I 'see' that you have no time for Grammar or correct punctuation, it demonstrates, not that you are progressive, intellectual or 'modern, merely that you are untutored and common.
