Labeling a person an accent has nothing to do with race. They are simply grouping customers together and putting a label on that group and as the people they are referring to has a different accent than the norm for their area it is simply a factual label.

No different than a group labeled Canadians or musicians. They also never stated any hate towards all people of such a group but merely stated that they have a tendency to be difficult customers where they don't believe the business is worth the headache.

I am getting tired of all the people these days trying so hard left and right to label others with negative labels such as racist, openly or between the lines. Simply so they can feel better about themselves instead of putting more effort in to making themselves better.

The most judgemental and hateful people I have met are those who make the biggest claim to not be so.

I never judge people blindly. Only after knowing them do I judge them. That being said I do take it as a warning sign that people claim to fight for social justice or those of faith. Warning sign not judgement as srated in my experience the most judgemental and hateful people are those who claim to be the least of such.

I'm not a social warrior. This is an international forum, people from all over the world all colors, races, sexes, religions, with only one thing in common, plumbing.
Ps: perhaps you were already thinking the same thing as nowhere in my post did I call anyone a racist.

I never said that you called anyone a racist. I said "if you are trying to say that". I was simply trying to tell you what I understood your post to mean. You wrote "maybe in your adds you should write whites only". Can you blame me for reading that between the lines to mean racist? Seemed like a reference to old days where racist business owners posted signs saying those exact words "whites only"

Can you elaborate on your statement so we can get a clear picture? I'm not sure to understand it...

Wait, first you write that nowhere did you call anyone a racist but now you say it was meant exactly as it was taken. It was taken to mean racist. Now please either man up and clearly state your opinion and stand by it or stop trying to throw insults out and then hide behind not having said it in those direct words.

I most definitely meant it as it was taken. I just never called anyone racist, I could have been just giving advice ala $hitrunsdownhill.

No, no you certainly never called anyone a racist by that word but you did just admit it was meant that way. Now since you said yourself that members here are from all over the world and of all races I would like to ask why you jump to conclusions that others using the term accents must be white racist people? They could just as well be of any other race and talking about any other group than themselves or even of their own race but from a different place with different accent. Why do you single out white people as racist? I believe that in itself actually makes you the racist. Are you by chance of a minority group in the place where you live and if so do you have a tendency to call anyone a racist because you find comfort in the victim mentality? I would encourage you to think about striving to make yourself a better person than those you disagree with instead of trying to tear them down.
