Detroit Woman Receives Racist Text Message From Limo Company

A Detroit woman is accusing a local limo company of racist behavior by sending her a text message with racist language in it. Candis Doss claims that she contacted the Detroit Limo Party Bus Company to book a vehicle for her mom’s birthday party, but an employee at the company sent her a racist text message when her call to them dropped.

Doss told MyFox Detroit that she was inquiring about prices when she was disconnected. Shortly afterwards, she received a text message which said: “Why do black people always just hang up…Is it an inherited thing to be rude? Or is it because you were slaves for so long?”

The woman claimed she was outraged by the incident and had never experienced such racist treatment before. “It never happened to me, or somebody that was just close to me, where I could feel what they feel,” said Doss. “I mean, it’s just like…when is it gonna stop?”

The Detroit Limo Party Bus Company confirmed that they were aware of the incident and currently investigating the matter internally. In the meantime, a rival service called the Metro Party Bus company has reached out to Doss and offered her free transportation for her mom’s birthday party.
