Racism And Houston Clubs: The Nightfly's Story
You didn't have a club already full of one race when several members of another race showed up and tried to get in; this was a scheduled private party booked in advance. And no one was denied access to anywhere; everyone was allowed in and then, for reasons that have yet to be sorted out or adequately explained, asked to leave.
If what some people are claiming is true, that a mostly black crowd was kicked out of a "white club" and told that the club was closing early only to re-open later on the same evening and serve white customers, then 2010 ended with an abhorrent, explicit display of wholesale racism.
Everyone pretty much agrees: Racism exists and it's not good, but it's not going to disappear simply because everyone knows that it's not good. Racism is everywhere and it tinges all things, both implicitly and explicitly.
But that still doesn't make it okay.
