    Everything's racist to you all of a sudden.

    Why don't you want to stop, pull back, and consider that maybe it didn't happen (either at all - or as this one customer says it did). What made his one post irrefutable proof, to you?

    I still stand by my belief that there's no proof it even happened.

There could have also been a particular action or something said by one in the group that triggered the other customer's concern.
    The group had been waiting for a table for two hours. If they were rowdy, the mgmt should have said something to them long before that

    Maybe they were afraid of this exact situation happening - being accused of being racist because they couldn't be seated.

    But seriously - I fail to grasp how a group of people would happily wait two hours, outside, for anything. Who does that? That's entirely illogical.

    No, it isn't, Aunt Spiker. tererun is calling a spade a spade. As a white person, I have the undeserved privilege of this news story simply being that--a news story. To deny the mere existence of this white privilege, let alone to do anything about it, enables the problem.

    i personally would not wait for so long, but I know that there are people who do that. In addition, most restaurants are not equipped to handle a walk-in party of 25. They may have waited thinking that no one else would be able to accommodate their group.

    If the restaurant had a valid reason for denying them service, then why would they offer the people a free meal?

    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.
    Why wasn't the one white customer kicked out? Seems like bad managing.

    If they started to "document" the event. Many businesses dont allow for video or filming on their property.
    That's it! They were asked to leave after they started filming the incident and the manager got upset.

    This business has the right to refuse service to anyone, case closed.

    If this group of black rowdies thinks they were discriminated against, let them call their buddy, Eric Holder, at the Department of Justice.

The pastor apologized, told us to come get our food (he escorted us) and to please please go to another level to enjoy it. He was afraid his congregation would cause us problems.

    We laughed our asses off, thanked the pastor and did just that. It happens. But I don't believe it happened at Buffalo Wild Wings based on this account.
    Haven't you been listening to the black activist? Only whites can be racist; blacks are incapable of such action.

    Nice touch of racism. Ditto your avatar. George Wallace would be proud.

    I think the psychology of it works like this: If they knew ahead of time it would be two hours, they wouldn't do it. It is the expectation they may be seated at any moment that keeps them waiting and the longer they wait, the more they have invested in the process. It all works incrementally.
