    Wild Wing Cafe Kicks Out 25 African Americans After White Customer Felt 'Threa[W:423]

    Right as the country commemorates the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, people are flocking to social media to condemn a South Carolina restaurant for its allegedly racist actions.

    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.

    Of course they wouldn't, it's South Carolina the state that started the Civil War.

    The article has no details about how the group was acting. They want to give the impression that the other customer felt threatened purely because they were black. However, I've seen multiple instances where a group would describe themselves as acting normal and I would have described them as rather rowdy. There could have also been a particular action or something said by one in the group that triggered the other customer's concern.

    I see at as a positive that the "threatened" person did not just use the Stand your ground law in SC to wipe out those threatening him..

    Two hours is a long time not to turn over 25 seats.

    They had been in the restaurant for 2 hours, if they were acting badly they would have been thrown out long before that.

    The story from Live5news writes that they were regular customers. There is no indication that they were misbehaving and were just refused because someone felt threatened by the group of black people. The story also says it was 1 guest who felt threatened, if they were an actual threat more diners would have felt threatened and we have no evidence of this happening.

    If they have were problem customers they would not have been offered free meals but they would have been told it was your fault so please don't come to our restaurant ever again.
