Granted, we don't have nearly as diverse of a population here, but I
cannot imagine ever seeing people turned away from any function
because they are black...at least not at this level of
participation...we aren't talking about a few old Sullivans sitting
around drinking moonshine. Even HERE, I rarely go to any function
without some mixture of race....and we have something like 5% AA in
Iowa. And remember, these folks make a point of hauling them colored
folks away with police if they DARE try to enter.
This is wrong, pure and simple. Stop making excuses for wrong
