it's not an income thing nor is it a race thing. you will get rich people not tipping as well. like i said before, it's the way you're raised and it depends on the people you are with.

I tip 5-10%, and I am indian.

Doesn't bother me. I bagged groceries for $6 an hour when I was 15 (don't think I ever got a tip, even once). If someone can give me a compelling reason why waiters/waitresses/pizza boys/whatever deserve more than that $6 I might tip more.

Given that they get $2.38 salary a $1 tip from 4 customers gives then $6.38. They don't deserve more.
