Blacks Asked To Leave Restaurant Because White Diner Felt Threatened [VIDEO]


Post-racial America loses another positive mark in the win-loss column, this after a group of Black diners celebrating a joyous occasion were allegedly denied entry to a restaurant because a white patron felt threatened.

WCSC, a CBS station in Charleston, S.C., broke the story last week of Michael Brown and a going away celebration he and his family attempted to host at the Wild Wing Cafe in July. Brown claims that his large party was refused seating by the shift manager in the casual eatery because a white guest didn’t feel comfortable with them there.

From WCSC:

“She said there’s a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” explains Brown. “Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before.”

Brown says while he was talking to the shift manager, someone in his group began videotaping the conversation. Brown says that’s when the manager became upset and refused to seat them.

“I asked her I want to be clear with you,” says Brown. “I said so you’re telling me I have to leave. She said I have a right to deny you service. I said so you’re asking me to leave because you’re upset because he was recording you, after we’ve waited for two hours, and after you’ve already pretty much discriminated on us, and she answered yes.”

Brown took to Facebook with a fiery tirade, which caught the attention of the Cafe’s chief marketing officer, Debra Stokes. Brown and Stokes spoke, and according to the Wild Wing rep, the pair had a “good conversation” but Brown is demanding more action.

“We weren’t coming there for a free meal. When we came there that night, we were coming to patronize the business,” said Brown. “This is not a situation where you can just give us a free meal and everything is OK because it’s deeper than that.”

    Reason why I don’t patronize much of anything anymore, and then when another business closes, I just sit back laughing at they close the doors….

    • JohnGaltShrugged

      They have closed several red lobsters in town which always were jam packed with customers and they are both close to black neighborhoods.

  • james

    They were quiet my a$$. They were loud as hell.

  • Guest

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they were kept waiting for 2 hours with the hopes that they would just go away and the seating discussion wouldn’t have to be had.

  • ShortyStackofAwesome

    ridiculous, why do we do this to eachother? whites to blacks, blacks to whites, browns to blacks, etc. “cant we all just get along” (RIP Rodney)

    • JohnGaltShrugged

      To make that statement shows how absolutely out of touch with reality you are.

  • respect

    i wouldn’t support them either; I’m glad he spoke up and spoke out about this business. Boycotts do work-you do not need my money if you do not respect me.

  • atlasshrugged2u

    what can I say that has not been said already!

  • CPLA

    They must have done something in order to be refused service. I suspect they were acting obnoxious.

    • JohnGaltShrugged

      If you want to see why go to a large metro city 500,000 to 1,000,000 people and go in a longhorn or outback wherever that is near a black neighborhood and go in and sit down and order an appetizer and just watch.

      Then come back here and comment on what you see.

      Zero manners

      They think a 15 dollar steak buy hand and foot waiter service


      go out and google blacks don’t tip

  • JohnGaltShrugged

    If you have ever spent any time around blacks you completely understand why they were booted out of the establishment.

    Blacks Don’t Tip………google it

    Blacks are loud and obnoxious…..google it youtube it

    Blacks want marque service and don’t want to pay for it……

    If you call them out they automatically go into CAT5 chimpout mode.

    I’m just a guy with the balls to say what you were already thinking.

    Vote this post up if you agree with me.

    All the blacks should boycott. The company will lose about $3.
