    It's supposition. If there was a loud obnoxious white group that was trying to cause problems for the staff then they probably would throw them out.

    Seriously though, get a sense of humor.
    It's only funny if you enjoy the racism.

    and like the black group, members of the white group could allege racism as the basis for their ejection from the premises
    the difficulty, for either group, is to prove that the reason for their treatment was due to their race/ethnicity/color

    Let's be honest, folks would just point and laugh at any white group's claim of racism, nor would a group of white folks likely play that card. This is behavior black comedians lampoon about "black culture" all the time. Get loud, rowdy and inconsiderate, get called on it, cry racism.

    Just watched the original Scary Movie again last night, the theatre scene is dead on here.

    It's only not funny if you let it affect you personally when it doesn't have to. The same goes for racism / racial humor towards any race, if you let it offend you, it has power over you.

    The greater difficulty would be in recognizing your own faults and coming to the realization that it might have had absolutely nothing to do with race/ethnicity/color.

    Wow. I see. The problem isn't that you're racist, it's that others let it bother them.

    Wow.

    Everyone who makes a joke about "keeping a black man away from a chicken wing" and thinks it's funny is at least a little racist, yes. And it's you who add to the planetary discomfort by doing so.

    That's on you. It's entirely your problem. None of mine, period.

    I don't have anything further to say about it.

    But it's ok for black people to say white people can't dance, or are snooty, or can't jump, or are nerdy, etc etc etc?

    The problem is on people who take simple, humorous observations of a culture too seriously and cry racism.

    You can keep being offended and living a life of anger while the rest of us just live our lives.
