This Bar’s Dress Code Is Being Called Racist, But Is It Really?

Leave a comment

This is from Independent Journal Review.

After reading the dress code there is no mention of race in it.

If I ran a bar or restaurant I would not allow this type of dress either.

Are blacks the only ones to dress in this manner?

I have seen white folks dressing this way also.

 

Can a dress code be racist? Some people in Minneapolis say, emphatically, yes. Bar Louie in uptown Minneapolis bars a host of apparel, including “flat bill hats,” “large chains” and “excessively baggy clothing.” “Might as well just say, ‘No black folks allowed,’” says one local resident. “It’s ridiculous.”

In order for a dress code to be “racist,” one would have to assume that an establishment would admit white people if they wore the barred clothing. And yes, we’ve all seen white guys who “dress black.” (See: Justin Bieber)

This is not to suggest that all white people – or black people – who dress like Justin Bieber behave like Justin Bieber. Or Tupak Shakur. But it is to suggest that there is a certain behavior pattern that generally goes along with those who wear all or most of the gear barred by Bar Louie’s dress code.

So it’s really a matter of barring behavior vs. barring blacks – or people ofany color, is it not? 

Besides, do those who call the dress code “racist” really believe that blacks who adhere to the policy will be turned away at the door? Or treated less welcome?

Let’s look at it another way: If the dress code listed the apparel that wasacceptable vs. that which is not (collared shirts, casual slacks, etc.), would that be “racist” as well?

The bottom line is this: if a bar or restaurant wants to establish a dress code in an effort to protect its investment, it should have every right to do so.

BOOM: Wahlberg to Bieber: ‘Pull your pants up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed, you little bastard.’

This is from Clash Daily.

This is advice many of the youth today need to follow.

There are some older people that need to follow this advice also.

About two weeks ago or so I saw an old man in his 60’s wearing his

pants so low hie underwear was showing he had a pony tail.

I wanted to tell him pull your pants up moron.

 

 

So, when Mark Wahlberg blasted wayward teenager Justin Bieber on Tuesday you know that ‘the Biebs’ knew that the superstar actor was straight talking with him.

The 19-year-old has endured a summer of madness with various run-ins with both the police and photographers that culminated in him facing an assault charge for spitting on a DJ during a Cleveland nightclub brawl.

And all of these incidents have not been lost on the 42-year-old producer and actor who had been rumored to be lining-up Bieber to star in a future basketball movie alongside him.

The 2 Guns star – who got in trouble with the Boston police numerous times as a teen and who developed a drug addiction before turning his life around – has stepped up to the plate to put Bieber firmly in his place.

The Fighter star told the UK Sun newspaper:’Justin, are you listening?’

‘Don’t be so naughty, yeah? Be a nice boy, pull your [pants] up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed, you little bastard.’

Why I Carry a Firearm

Brigid over at Home on the Range posted this.







Because bad guys rarely shoot themselves.
Because rapists consider a whistle as foreplay.
Because I can’t throw a pit bull at 1200 feet per second.

Because I’d look stupid pushing a gun around in a stroller.

Because my Acme Dehydrated Boulders are in my other bag.

Because a cop that isn’t in my purse is at least 10 minutes away.

Because lightning never hits the bad guy at the opportune time.
Because Steven Seagal isn’t here to hide behind (literally, not figuratively).

Because the only belt I earned in martial arts is the one that kept my shirt on.

Because throwing a jar of angry bees just pisses off the average armed burglar.

Because a running chainsaw is just hard to get through the aisle at Quick E Mart late at night.

Because to run, I need a sports bra that makes me look like I’m expecting an assassination attempt.

Because with a Smith and Wesson, it doesn’t matter that I have the upper body strength of Justin Bieber.
Because if you think an underwire bra is uncomfortable, try a couple of Ninja Stars in your shirt pocket.

Because when I say (deadpan) “Stop, or I’ll kick your butt” it doesn’t sound as scary as when Chuck Norris says it.

Because tying angry Grizzlies to the front, side and rear of my car might stop the average carjacker, it’s a bitch in traffic.

Because as a law abiding citizen, the United States Constitution affirms that right, and my city and state support it.

Because the world is not the one I grew up in.
