COMMUNITY PSA: I receive a LOT of requests from people to write/blog about or post various things on my facebook page. Some times I do it but most times I don’t. This particular situation was brought to my attention last week. I think it’s more than worthy of my wall and your time to read and discuss.
The BIG take away from the blog is, “Don’t patronize Downtown Sports Bar and Grill in Raleigh, NC.” It seems that they had a brain fart and imagined that it was 1960′s America again. You know that wonderfully nostalgic time in American history when Negro’s and Blanco’s couldn’t “legally” occupy the same space and time.
Now mind you the author of this blog is Blanco and the person affected most by the incident was Negro and a Morehouse man.
That said, read the blog and tell me what you think. What say YE?!!!

The takeaway: Don’t patronize Downtown Sports Bar and Grill in Raleigh, NC. Also, if you’re white and you’re the only person in the restaurant, you might want to ask around to make sure your favorite establishments aren’t pulling this kind of shit.
As for Jonathan, he’s a former student of mine. I call him “Mr. President” because he’s one of the most intimidatingly accomplished and polished undergrads I’ve ever met. He’s also one of the nicest people I know. He wouldn’t lie about something like this.
