    Not necessarily, because it takes someone complaining to initiate asking them to leave.

    Being regulars doesn't mean anything. If NBC will doctor a phone call to make it seem racist then I wouldn't put it past anyone to omit key details. If the customer's complaint seemed unreasonable during the event then the manager would have likely ignored it.

    People have posted to boycott the restaurant. Of course they are going to offer a free meal and apologize to try and save their business.

    According to CBS affiliate WCSC-TV, Michael Brown and 24 of his family and friends were at Wild Wing Cafe celebrating his cousin's final day in Charleston, S.C., last month when the group was suddenly told to leave.

    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.



    There are a lot of places to eat in the USA.

    Why would anyone wait two hours to get a meal?

    If they were that bad to which they needed to be tossed out and were threatening others the management would have called the police. It is the carolinas, and a rowdy black crowd who was threatening people would be something the police would have dealt with. The reason we know this is BS is because there was no police involvement because calling them for a false report would be a crime. I have been in a similar situation having been thrown out of an AL walmarrt for supposedly flashing a customer while in drag. When their security came up to me and asked me to leave they said a customer had complained i exposed myself to them. I told them they had cameras and if I had done it i would be under arrest and not asked to leave. In m case the situation went further as i complained as i left and they decided to call the police and tell them I was drunk and flashing people. That resulted in some charges and some firings at the store. You have to have a good reason to call the police, and a rowdy group of threatening black people would be a reasonable thing to call about if they were threatening. That is why they did not call because there was no threat.

    If you have any proof that this happened, let's see it.

    I never wait, if I go to a resturant and I have to wait in line or if I have to have a seat and wait for a table, I move on to the next resturant. Before I will stand in line or wait for a table, I'll go to Burger King first. It is like Yogi Berra said, "No one goes there anymore, its too crowded."
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I had exactly the same thought.

    The White dude who was standing his ground in this story could have whipped out his Uzi and sent all of those threatening 'others' to their maker.

    So I guess that we could say that this could have tuned out a lot worse.

    I could say a lot more, but I'll just leave it at that for now.

    If your establishement has a beer/liquor license then you are very reluctant to call the police to your location. The number of disturbance calls to police is a matter of public record and can affect the keeping/renewal of that important license on which your business depends. This is why many such establishments spend their own money on private security/bouncers.
