    What in the article indicates it was about race? The mere fact that it concerns a group of African Americans?

    Well, that's my attitude about the racism allegation: what is it based on?

    Of course! Had it been a group of white folks there would have been be no accusation of race being a factor.

    It would seem odd that a restaurant would kick people out because someone felt threatened. It could be the decision came once the party started recording the event and that without that they wouldn't have been asked to leave. It could be that perhaps there was some interaction between the other patrons and this group. It could be a straight up act of unabashed racism.

    The reason? The shift manager allegedly told Brown that a white customer felt "threatened" by his party. When one of Brown's companions started filming the exchange, the shift manager is said to have told the group to leave.

    "[That] totally alarmed all of us because we're sitting there peaceably for two hours," Brown told the news outlet.

    Wild Wing Cafe Kicks Out 25 African Americans After White Customer Felt 'Threatened': Report

    "I had a dream" where restaurants would not turn away black diners who were waiting peacefully for 2 hours to get seated because "1 white customer felt threatened". Sorry, but this is just horrible. The last day's dinner of these people was ruined because of the unreasonable feelings of 1 diner in a restaurant.

    I blame the manager for this disaster. She should have reasoned with the "fearful" customer and solved this. This is a public image nightmare for this company due to intolerance and what looks like racism on a weekend that was the 50th anniversary of the march on Washington and one of the most monumental events in the civil rights struggle.

    I also wonder, whether the same would have happened if 1 black person had complained he/she felt threatened by a large group of white people.
    If 25 black people were asked to leave a restaurant because 1 white guy felt uncomfortable, it would have taken a swat team to get them out of there.

    This story is BS.

    The one part I do believe is that they could have waited 2 hours - a 2 hour wait won't keep a black man from a chicken wing

    This is from someone who says she's a waitress and was there.

    Woman from Wild Wings Contacts Radio Facts, States Black Patrons Asked to Leave for Several Reasons

    You’re only getting one side of story here. I work at the restaurant and your representation of the events is way off base. The group was being loud and obnoxious to both customers and staffers. They kept complaining about their long wait and were talking about how “whitey” was able to get seated, but they were not. The problem was that they had a large group and insisted on sitting next to each other. We only had one area that could accommodate their large group and the patrons in that area were not done. So yes, some “whities” were able to be seated before them, but only because they were going to a different area. We also seated non-whites in other areas too…They made this a racial issue before anything. One of the guests also insulted a deaf white girl because she didn’t respond to one of them telling her to move (she was deaf and didn’t hear them) They were also all standing in the middle of the walk way, making it difficult for customers to leave. We asked them if they could move over, but they said they can stand wherever they want, and if we wanted them out of the way then we should seat them. The customer that was offended was offended by a particular individual’s constant uses of the word “n*gger” When asked to stop, he threw out a long string of racial epithets against one of my co-workers.
    Is she who she says? Dunno, but I'd say it's as reliable as the Facebook post that some are using as gospel.

    That sounds pretty logical.

    It certainly strikes me as being more realistic than a restaurant turning away 25 paying customers to please 1, and the behavior described seems consistent with the tone of the Facebook post.

    Keep in mind, the only source which even claimed the whole thing was in response to a single customer complaint in the first place is the guy who posted on Facebook. So who knows if they were even told that? Could very well have been many customer complaints, or even just the restaurant managing the situation on its own.

    "The group was being loud and obnoxious to both customers and staffers. They kept complaining about their long wait and were talking about how “whitey” was able to get seated, but they were not."

    This sort of thing would definitely intimidate other diners.



    No reservations and 25 people to seat. That sounds like a set up. I think the restaurant was being pretty patient to let them hang around complaining for two hours.

    I don't know about it being a setup but I did work in restaurants during college and if a large group showed up without a reservation it always caused a problem. 25 people is more than a "large" party...it a freaking huge party for any restaurant not set up for that kind of thing.
