Can a dress code be “racist”? That’s what some people are calling a Minneapolis bar’s new clothing policy, KMSP-TV reported.
“Might as well just say, ‘No black folks allowed,’” local Michelle Horovitz said. ”It’s ridiculous.”
Horovitz runs Appetite For Change — an organization that espouses a “dedication to racial, economic and social justice.”
The policy, posted in Bar Louie’s uptown Minneapolis location, bans a host of apparel on weekend nights, including “flat bill hats,” “large chains,” “long plain white T-shirts” and “excessively baggy clothing.”
No Flat-Billed Hats
No Sleeveless Under Shirts
No Excessively Baggy Clothing
No Large Chains Worn Outside Of Shirt
No Long Plain White T-Shirts
No Athletic Apparel
No Sports Jerseys Unless Collared
Some onlookers agreed that the policy was effectively targeting black people.
“If you do not want African-Americans to frequent your establishment, then maybe you should just say that and not just break it down to the dress code,” onlooker Imani Vincent told KMSP.
But most commenters on KMSP’s website seemed to completely disagree, saying it was about conduct, not race.
Flat bill hat = hispanic
sleeveless undershirts = white trash
baggy clothing = black
Equal opportunity offender, finally, a store that wants decent people.
How did anyone come up with this Dress Code being Racist and Targeting Black People?
I see plenty of Whites and Hispanics that dress like this.
I look at the list and they are Targeting Gang Bangers, and wanna-be Gang Bangers.
And lets not look into Michelle Horovitz she has no agenda here.
Yes, she does, as noted: “Social and racial justice”.
And we see that agenda in full Progressive mode, as she continued to comment:
“Minnesota might be the nicest, healthiest, cleanest state in America, but we have huge issues as far as segregation, racism, systematic oppression — and people want to look the other way,” Horovitz said. “This is not okay, and we’re not going to patronize you if you don’t change your policy.”
Somehow I don’t think she’s ever stepped foot in Bar Louie. Maybe Bar Alinsky.
What do you think? Is the bar being racist?
Or being prudent to keep out “lowlifes” of all colors and creeds? Let us know in the comments below…
