    Yes, imagine using racism in a thread discussing racism. Again, can't get anything past you slugger ...

    PS discussing racism, if it actually occurred, and what it is, isn't the same as declaring something racism. And if you would bother reading the thread you would notice that I am one of the people pointing to a lack of evidence for racism, or racial motivations

    Yeah, this was pretty blatant... and they got at least part of it on video!

    The fact that Management was contacted several times over a period of weeks, and only made a move to "rectify" the situation after it hit social media leads me to believe they didn't think kicking a group of black people out "because they can" was a big deal. I agree with the guy being interviewed. It clearly WAS a big deal, and they don't want free food. They want the policy that if a white person feels "threatened", black people can be kicked out "because they can" changed.

    I don't blame him one damned bit. Anyone who looks for excuses to call this something other than what it was... blatant racism condoned by management... should frankly be ashamed of themselves.

    Looking when you cross the street has nothing to do with fear.

    I carry and have clicked off my safety once and had my thumb on it twice. I was scared, or at least reasonalby in fear for my life. See post 172. Not the same thing.

    Her premise was that anyone who was willing to use a weapon to defend themselves was "scared".

    I replied with post #191.

    Are you able to follow that line of reasoning?

    Is she who she says? Dunno, but I'd say it's as reliable as the Facebook post that some are using as gospel.
    Yep.

    This is what I figured. I guess I should read the whole thread before posting as I read.

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.
    Bull****. I've worked security at a liquor establishment and the last thing you want to do is call the police on unruly patrons.

    Your logic fails.

    I'm taking a shot at her general assertion that this is something which doesn't happen often. It does. White only, black only businesses exist today. They just don't label themselves as such. Try getting a loan in Harlem as a white guy or black clientele at certain barbershops down South. Won't happen.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yep.

    When my immediate family gets together, that can, we normally have 12-16 people. We always make reservations, and many places say we don't have that large of an area.

    That's often for a reason. Go somewhere else than. Rather short sighted not to make a reservation with more than 4-6 people, depending on the place.

    How was it blatant?

    or something going viral on the internet has much more of an impact on your business than a personal complaint ....

    I agree with the guy being interviewed. It clearly WAS a big deal, and they don't want free food. They want the policy that if a white person feels "threatened", black people can be kicked out "because they can" changed.
    There have been accusations the person complaining felt threatened because they were verbally assaulted and threatened by a member of his party ...

    I don't blame him one damned bit. Anyone who looks for excuses to call this something other than what it was... blatant racism condoned by management... should frankly be ashamed of themselves.
    Why not actually articulate something resembling an argument as opposed to simply declaring people that disagree with you are racist?
