ACCUSATIONS OF A RACIST DOOR POLICY AT MY PREVIOUS BAR
Unfortunately, the internet is forever. I've tried to get the photos and a couple of fictional articles removed but have had no success so here goes...
It's true that, at my previous bar Continental, we denied entry for several reasons, including Dress Code and Saggy Jeans worn below the butt.
This look originated in prison because of their "No Belts" policy. Not a style I welcomed in my bar.
Initially when we were asked "Can I pull them up?" we responded "Yes of course."
However once inside, 10 out of 10 would drop their pants back down.
There were 3 Formal Complaints made at the NYC COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS about our door Policy. At my first interview I answered all questions honestly and also mentioned our 16 Surveillance Cameras. They weren't aware of this at all. I suggested they select 5 random dates to view my door policy with their own eyes and they did exactly that.
ALL 3 COMPLAINTS WERE IMMEDIATELY DISMISSED!
This is documented. Call them 212 306 7450
I am waiting on copies of the Dismissal to post here.
They remarked "There are always people of color working there and drinking there and many more caucasians are turned away at the door than people of color."
There were 2 Protests outside my bar with a third scheduled. No one showed up for the third Protest in spite of their Leader promoting it with flyers.
Why? Because at the second protest they sent in 4 people of color, not wearing saggy jeans and all 4 got in. Of course.
I realized this when I saw them inside the bar and later hanging out outside with the protesters.
Had they done their test of our Door Policy BEFORE they protested nobody would have ever shown up to protest.
The NY Times came under cover and reported that "40% of the crowd were people of color."
And my friends and ex girlfriends of color have had a good laugh at these accusations and supported me throughout. As did my security crew who were mostly black.
HAS ANYONE RETRACTED THEIR ACCUSATIONS, STORIES OR PHOTOS??? OF COURSE NOT.
BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES GUILTY OF BLIND HATRED AND THIS IS ALL PROJECTION.
So to the people that post that I'm a racist without knowing the facts and will continue to even after reading this...it's a horrible thing to say about someone, especially when it's truly the opposite of who I am.
it's Bad Karma and it will come back to you.
