    I was born, raised, and continue to live in Richmond. I remember being a little girl and hearing my parents tell me about how the people at “Cain’s Diner” would not serve blacks. I remember feeling so sorry not only for the people who were discriminated against, but also for the town itself because of the owner’s ignorance. Spreading hatred like that is a dangerous thing. I’m happy that the people who were once not allowed to step inside are now the owners. It is a great example of karma and a great testament of overcoming society’s obstacles. Good for you, Stop And Go!!!!

    I was a student at EKU 1999-2003. I walked by the then empty Cain’s Diner building wondering what would ever happen to that place! I’m glad to see the Stop ‘n Go has been welcomed to the community! I can’t wait to get back to Richmond and try it out!

    White, Black, Red, or Yellow; Green still speaks the same. All the business that was lost because those people judged others on their skin color, in place of their money in hand. Just too bad for them and their business–it is done for them now.

    May the new owners have the best of business and serve all the colors of the city, county, and this proud country of ours.

    I was born in Richmond and raised their until I was 12 years. I went back to go to EKU. As a person of color I hated Richmond and the white folks that used to call me out my name. I will never stop back in the racist town of Richmond, KY!!

  6. What up people !

    The Good Doctor here – I’m proud of my brothers – this is what Richmond needs
    - every town has a soul/bbq joint – if you have any type of black population – you have black services – Richmond has been de-voied of that foe years – i challange
    everyone else to step up an start your own business – it dose not have tobe specifically for the Black Community – but it’s a business thats good for everyone
    - their is a lot of talent in Richmond – we just need to believe – look at Stop & Go

    I supported you when you set up at the old American Legion parking lot. I would be disappointed when I’d drive by and you weren’t there. I hope and pray for your continued success.
