Group of 25 Black people waited two hours to get in a Wild Wing Cafe restaurant in North Charleston

Digital and Radio Facts: This place has had MANY complaints of the same type since this happened in August of 2013. Who was it that created the chicken wing concept again?

Once again we are witnessing the true power of social media. You are hearing about this story because one man posted about his experience on Facebook at a Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston, SC, where his friends and family suffered some “1960's” style discrimination.

A group of 25 Black people waited two hours to get in a Wild Wing Cafe restaurant in North Charleston, South Carolina, only to be asked to leave almost immediately after entering the restaurant because a white customer felt “threatened” by their presence. One member of the group, Michael Brown,  took his complaint to Facebook when the corporate office of the restaurant did not call him back after placing several calls.

Mr Brown says he was celebrating his cousin's last day in Charleston last month at Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston. He says after his party of 25 peacefully waited two hours for a (read the rest of the story by clicking “Next” above or below< table, the shift manager told them there was a “situation.” She said “there's a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we're sitting there peaceably for two hours,” explains Brown. “Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before.”

Brown says while he was talking to the shift manager, someone in his group began videotaping the conversation. Brown says that's when the manager became upset and refused to seat them. “I asked her I want to be clear with you,” says Brown. “I said so you're telling me I have to leave. She said I have a right to deny you service. I said so you're asking me to leave because you're upset because he was recording you after we've waited for two hours, and after you've already pretty much discriminated on us, and she answered yes.”

Brown told WNEM TV 5 news that several calls were made to the corporate office in Mt. Pleasant, but he says they did not receive a callback, so he posted about his experience on Facebook.

His Facebook post read, “I will never go to Wild wings cafe in N. Chs again! We (Party of 25 family and friends) waited for 2hrs, patiently and were refused service because another customer (White) felt threatened by us. This type of racial discrimination is unacceptable and we have to put a STOP TO IT. The manager looked me dead in the face and said she was refusing us service because she had a right to and simply she felt like it. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ESTABLISHMENT… PLEASE SHARE THIS POST… We need your help.”

Once his post went live and began to circulate around Facebook, he finally got a response from Wild Wings Cafe corporate office. ” We got alerted through social media, so we always encourage our customers to respond to us or to comment on our social media pages,” says Debra Stokes, the chief marketing officer for Wild Wing Cafe.

“We had a conversation,” says Stokes. “It was a really good conversation. He and many of his family and friends were there about a month ago, and they are regular customers of ours. So, they were having a going away party, and they just didn't receive the experience that they have come to know and love.”

Brown says an apology was offered and a free meal for the entire group, but he says he's not completely satisfied.

“We weren't coming here for a free meal. When we came there that night, we were coming to patronize the business. This is not a situation where you can just give us a free meal and everything is ok because it's deeper than that.” See an employee of Wild Wings' different account of the events >HERE<

  1. I am a 55 year old White Male. If these people were not causing any problems or creating any kind of a disturbance then why were the asked to leave?? Because 1 white person said they felt uncomfortable?? That’s a crock if I ever heard one. This is what is wrong with our country people!!!! Too many people saying I am offended, uncomfortable, don’t like someone sitting next to them for STUPID reasons!!!! Grow Up!!!!!! If you do not wake up it won’t be each other that you will have to worry about it will be the one invading OUR country to take control of ALL of us!!!!!

    • So very true–while we are busy fighting with each other entities will sneak right in and slowly takeover without anyone noticing until it is way to late. As long as we stand UNITED as a country and as a people nothing or no one could ever takeover. People please stop the arguing, hate and fighting. We have a man in the highest office in our land and he has put a WHITE SUPREMACIST in the White House. This is how it starts. This man promised Americans how he was going to make America great again and then sticks the White Supremacist in a position that could change our lives, but not for the better. Whose interest do you think he had in mind when he promised to “Make America Great Again?”

  2. This is disgusting but it should not be surprising. Eradicating race-based behaviors, bigoted acts and race based inequality will take multiple generations (1 generation =20 years) and some people like the human atavists at the “Wild Wing Cafe” stubbornly hold on to the past.

    Can blacks stay awake (we were during the civil rights movement of the 1960s remember)? Sure. Will they? Don’t know, it is easier to sleep besides staying awake requires a cultural change from within that ends the so-called ratchet anti-social behavior (instant gratification, lack of long term planning, multiple children within a single headed household with different fathers, and embracing of violence). Those are behavioral traits that can be abandoned for something more productive like academic prowess , a focus on higher learning and thinking and restraint. Those are definitely not impossible and they would help blacks stay awake and not provide negative cognitive fodder for bigoted thoughts and actions.

    • Its ppl like you who are responsible for the perpetuation of these stereotypes , you want to sound intelligent and speak under the cover of equality but with your own words you prove that your ignorant as hell , so what theres no white single parent household’s? Every negative you referenced applies to all races but you think only blacks own it huh ??? Closet bigots are the worst kinds of racists… #FN disgusting !!!

  3. wow ,and some people actually continue to say racism doesn’t exist today ,Black folks say this (denial) and white folks(the most denial) say this crap too.

  4. Still in todays time we have this crazy I feel threaten mentality. Not because of my character but because of the color of my skin. Jesus I pray for this world we live in now.

  5. so sad..but that is SC..I hope they continue to boycott that place..they changed the name in TX to brezwings so I will not be going there either…too many other wing places to go to that support our business!!

  6. I would have told the white person to leave and take her ignorance with her. I don’t put up with racism of any kind. I don’t care what race you are.

  7. What he says happened: White man felt uncomfortable so they kicked our family out.

    What actually happened: 2 hours of families most likely enduring the word “nigga, slang, and curse words” in a family oriented restaurant, families get uncomfortable and a dad says something to the manager, manager says something to black family they have to leave.

    Yes. Whitey got you kicked out. I would eat at that place in a heartbeat as a civilized family oriented tongue holding “sonofabiscuit.”

    The real moral of the story is that you shouldn’t curse and make other families uncomfortable with the one last free thing you have in life(speech). When you waive that right in a restaurant the establishment kicks you out. I am about Political Correct speech, but what I do mean, is if you are going to be talking about obscenities loud, be prepared to not be served.

    What is the easiest explanation you can come up with as to why he was kicked out? Racism? or the staff kicked them out for being disorderly?

    The second is easier for me to see happening.

  8. Welcome to a normal day in the South.

    Even when we are trying to do normal things like go to a public establishment to eat, we still get situations like this that proves that we’ve got a LONG way to go before racism is truly dead in this country

  9. Its a shame…..tell you what. Let some of us northerners handle that same situation….we would’ve gone in the kitchen and started cooking……..

  10. Ever since the Trayvon Martin case took the nation by storm, angry conservative extremists, both white and black, have accused black people of being racist after demanding George Zimmerman stand trial for the death of the teen. These same extremists have labeled the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson as “race-hustlers.” After the Zimmerman acquittal, many blacks were angry at the jury’s verdict of not guilty. Some went to social media to post their response. Of course, conservative websites picked up these rants and posted on their websites to show their base the “violent nature” of black people.

    Well, look who is doing the race-hustling now. The conservative media and websites have been posting daily the deaths of whites by the hands of blacks. They are using the deaths of Chris Lane, the Australian athlete who was shot to death in Oklahoma by three teens, and the beating death of 88-year-old WWII veteran Delbert Belton by two teens in Spokane, Washington to show conservative extremists the violent nature of blacks-how convenient they left out the shooting deaths of movie-goers in Aurora, Colorado, and the murders of innocent children at Sandy Hook. Let me state that I condone ALL senseless murders regardless of race. Murders have no place in society.

    Let’s break this down

    The conservative media and their hosts are 100% responsible for spreading this “blacks attacking whites” mentality. They know exactly what they are doing. They are playing to that base of ignorant people.

    They are telling their base that blacks are attacking whites as “punishment” for the Zimmerman acquittal. Now we have this hysteria that groups of blacks are going around attacking whites for no reason.

    What can you do about this?

    First, I strongly recommend calling out the conservative media, Fox News and conservative hosts publicly. Tell them you are on to their race-base scare tactics, and you will not tolerate it. Secondly, I would send numerous Tweets to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and inform him this scare tactic will cause the GOP to lose in 2016. Tweet him at @Reince. You may think to yourselves, “They don’t care.” Believe me. They do take this seriously. They know in the next few decades minorities will be the majority. I’ve been in the political game for years. Trust me on this one.

    If you don’t take action now, cases like the restaurant incident will continue to grow. Only you can stop this madness.

  11. The problem lies with the brothers and sisters mentality, sometimes I really think they like to be treated like yesterdays’ slaves. Why do you constantly patronized White establishments faithfully, give your hard earned money to these folks only to be treated like crap? And then cry about it when you’re mis-treated. There’s something wrong with that thinking. Here’s a better idea. Why not pool your monies together and open up your own businesses, and patronize them? Keep some of that hard earn money in your own community, and then tell those white folks to kiss your natural black ass!
    No problem,stop being reactive, shit be proactive!

  12. I did not see any where in this story from the person who published it, told it or commented in it, that these group of people were being rude or disrespectful, prior to the manager asking them to leave. With that being said, the reality is…with customer service like that, I would not want to eat there, anyway. This is awful and what’s even more disturbing is corporate assuming a free meal would replace the integrity and expectation of appropriate customer service skills in this post segregation time we live in.

    To create a sense of fake fairness, with thoughts of certain kind of people not being welcome, they use the “we reserve the right to not service you” and refusal to comply is subject to penalties by law. There is no cut and dry reason for refusal to serve someone. It is totally subjective. In addition no sane person I know would want to STAY in a restaurant where they have made it clear that they do not want to serve you; and or… EVEN… become subjected to being fined/arrested for trespassing, disorderly conduct or loitering.

  13. Those who carry racism in their hearts are blind. Now, how much money did this stupid manager turned away? 25 people with an average of about $15 to $20 x 25 = $375 to $500. This manager rejected that amount of money to make one caucasian customer comfortable does not make good business sense. On top of that, all of the business they will loose because of this situation. I WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN.

  14. These niggers were probably making a scene – being loud and obnoxious. Good for the restaurant manager asking these scum to leave and let CIVILIZED people enjoy their dinner.

  15. So you are saying, I should be afraid of strange looking white people because they might be packing an assault weapons with 500 rounds if ammunition and ready to shoot. Does that sound strange or is that reality.
    People wake up and make sure you vote, otherwise you will find you are getting off the slave ship. Peace.

  16. Fucking niggers were probably making a scene, as usual – yelling and trying to drw attention to their pathetic selves. Good for the manger for kicking their dirty asses out.

  17. MWhiteman – Were you there? I am sure that is what YOU see taking place. Your just as bad as the people who claimed they made them feel “threatened”. It’s easy to assume that all African American people go around cussing and acting “disorderly”.

  18. @MWhitman …have u been to WWC..Its a sports bar..If the ppl were being disorderly..They should of been asked to leave b4 waiting two hrs..RACISM is the factor in this situation..Ppl judging by the color of skin n stereostype!

  19. I gotta say something as a black woman who used to work in the restaurant industry years ago. This may piss some black people off but I am being totally real here. There are generally 2 types of black people in large groups when they go out to eat in a restaurant. They are either easy going, cool and respectful or loud , obnoxious and demanding especially when they are young.Primarily when they are young. It hurts me to say that but it is true sometimes. There is a possibility that they must have came in and put people off somehow and were asked to leave, and because it was probably all whites in the restaurant they assumed it was because of race and was offended. Alot of people in groups never think they are being loud or offensive because everyone in their group is acting the same way, so it’s easy to see how things can get this way.I guess we will find out the truth soon! I have seen groups of black people walk into a restaurant and start creating chaos with demands , complaints, over the top laughter and other aggressive annoyances that ruin the dining experience for everyone else, including other black families trying to enjoy their food. they act like they don’t care and even get louder when they see people getting uncomfortable. Not to mention the urban legend that is mostly true the blacks are the worst tippers on Earth, although in this case a party of 25 will instantly get gratuity added to the bill, unless they planned to pay separately which most people do to avoid tipping correctly.

    On the other hand I have seen white waiters and bartenders treat black couples like crap and judge them before they even sit down, because they automatically assume they wont get tipped. I have seen that alot and I never liked it or tolerated it and would go out of my way to make sure they were taken care of.

    I myself have seen the way people react when I go out to eat wit my sisters, and sometimes we have been treated very badly even though we all are all great tippers.

    When it comes to business, I think most restaurants nowadays could care less about peoples race. They just want to make money, but unfortunately blacks and Europeans are known in the industry for being the worst tippers and people who live on tips do not want to bother with difficult customers who don’t tip them in the end. Europeans are not as guilty because they come from a culture where tipping in restaurants does not exist. So they get a pass sometimes but blacks don’t. They know better and they still don’t tip right alot of times. It sucks but that is just the way it is. Sorry to be so honest but you have to look at this from all sides.

  20. MWhitman, you made an amazing, racist assumption. I am a Black man with obviously a Black family and had it been my family none, NONE of what you ascribe to this family would be true. Get a grip. And a life

  21. Well, well, well…so the WILD WING folks in North Charleston made a very poor decision that now leaves black patrons with little choice but to STOP GOING TO AND SPENDING MONEY ON THE WILD WINGS establishment (which could include all 33 of its locations nationwide).

    If one person can influence a management decision like this then it is unfortunate and unfair, and should prompt everyone who believes this is wrong to stand up and speak with their wallet and let WILD WINGS commit the senseless acts of unlawful discrimination without also benefitting by discriminating AND raking in good people’s money for profit.


  22. Interesting. Whitman totally makes up a completely hypothetical scenario, decides it’s fact and then says the restaurant was completely right and he’d be happy to eat there. I’m SURE he doesn’t consider himself a racist though.

  23. 25 People wait paitently and quietly for 2 hours in a restaurant? Yeah SURE! LOL

    They would have been complaining how long it was taking the whole time and were finally asked to leave.

    Fickin Sooks!

  24. Manager made a big mistake. Party of 25 to 1 threatened. I’m terribly sorry that you feel threatened, let me get you a to-go box so you can leave, and the drinks are on us! Party of 25, right this way, your tables are ready!! I am from the Human Race, and don’t believe in racism; yes, I know it’s still around; but there are better ways of handling these kinds of situations, starting with calm is the first rule. And don’t start filming, just because you feel slighted, that just inflames the situation quicker. No one wins when feathers get ruffled!!

  25. Hey MWhitman,

    You don’t get to say “what actually happened” then immediately follow that with something that “most likely” took place. Either you know they were a boisterous, controversial group during their wait or you don’t. To anyone with a shred of common sense, it looks like you’re firmly in group 2, and thus contributing to the problem.

  26. When businesses stay up ignorance and racism. They need not to be patronized. America will never come to the conclusion and understand that the color of your skin does not determine your character.

  27. @mWhitman-“What he says happened: White man felt uncomfortable so they kicked our family out.

    What actually happened: 2 hours of families most likely enduring the word “nigga, slang, and curse words” in a family oriented restaurant, families get uncomfortable and a dad says something to the manager, manager says something to black family they have to leave.”

    Do you have physical (auditory) proof that type of conversation occurred? Were you there? Unless you’ve got actual verbatim proof, you’re saying Hearsay!

  28. Tios is why the south is still stuck in the south ways. I will never feel welcome there or move to the south. This restaurant disgusts me and I will never go there. This behavior should not be tolerated so much really has not changed since the 1960’s.

  29. It’s time Black people woke up, and realize how some people are trying to turn the clock back. We need to unite and stop this injustice that a lot of blacks are going through. You either stand for something or fall for anything.

  30. MWhitman, your explanation is a load of crap. #1, They were waiting OUTSIDE, so even if their convo made this racist “uncomfortable”, how would they hear the convo through the walls of the restaurant???? #2, you clearly miss the point of free speech. Myself or anyone in that group can say whatever the hell they want. I want to know if you think their imaginary convo shouldn’t be said out loud, what about these racist Congressman and state reps saying things that make others uncomfortable? Do you think they deserve to be kicked out of places as well? Or what about white people that use slang and curse words, because according to you, only large groups of black people do that. Your assumption is ignorant and has no basis. This was clearly racism, which is what this country was built upon and is alive and well today. Maybe you should go back and read the article and work on your own prejudices.

  31. MWhitman, you didn’t disclose your own race, but let me guess, you are as White as I am. (I’m mostly Scandinavian, with a liberal Quaker family history). The only difference, is that I read your comment and it has a typical racist undertone. You don’t seem to think that a family going to a family restaurant couldn’t be respectful of that atmosphere, because they have more Melanin than you and I have? That is the root of racism, and it is the typical attitude that minorities have been fighting since Jim Crow laws were instituted and repealed.

    The difference between us, is that I am more willing to accept that, especially in SC, racism is the only underlying cancer of the mind that caused this family, and their undoubtedly large bill and appropriate tip to be kicked out.

    The manager needs to be replaced, the better thing to do would be to ask the customer who “felt threatened” if they wanted to be moved to a different section of the restaurant, so they were not sitting near the large family. If that were not good enough, then I’d thank that customer for their business, give them their bill and a to-go box. They could then leave the restaurant and finish eating their dinner elsewhere, away from the family that they felt threatened them by breathing in the same space. Ignorance, racism, bigotry, and their underlying xenophobia must be fought with education and must be eradicated. Xenophobia is a mental disease that must be fought and conquered.

  32. I was never a fan of them anyway. Now this restaurant will not be on my list if this is not a joke on 50th anniversary of march on washington.

  33. That’s sad but its reality. One person caused this party of 25 not to patronize this restaurant. Plus, they had too put it in the media to get a responds on this matter.

  34. I am confident that there were 2 hours of disorderly conduct (aka hootin’ and hollerin’) and profanity (aka N****-bombs plus other words).

    I am sure it was multiple white patrons and multiple restaurant employees that agreed with the decision to deny them service.

    But how convenient to make this a “racial issue”.

  35. Asking 25 patronizing Black customers to leave a restaurant because of 1 Black phobia White customer doesn’t make good business sense.

  36. Wow….sounds like some stupidity that could AND has very well.have happened in my hometown….Danville VA. Last home of the Confederacy and THATs well.spoken of around here. So sorry u experienced this sir. It’s sad Nd THREATENING. I teuly believe feel and see America regressing to its ways of ols…and I feel threatened in ways a WhItE man ir woman will never know.

  37. I am just as sure that had there been any misbehavior, management would have used it in defense of themselves. All of you who have decided what happened without being there and without getting any information otherwise are just as racist as they come. You are the problem with the country. Nobody else. It seems you can’t carry on a conversation without cursing and calling names, all the while complaining that that is what a family did when there is no evidence of such. Narrow minded behavior and stupid, unlinked thought processes.

  38. Why do I have a feeling there’s more to this story than meets the eye? I understand that people like to believe in fairy tales, but this one takes the cake. Am I to believe that ONE customer’s complaint was taken this seriously, and that a party of 25 who were sitting quietly, minding their own business and being polite, were told to HIT THE ROAD because the manager of a restaurant doesn’t like Black people? That’s a crock, if I ever heard one.

    More likely, a customer saw a group of 25 being loud and obnoxious (which anyone who’s ever been in a restaurant can tell you is ALWAYS the case with a group of more than 4 people), and asked that they be seated elsewhere. When the manager tried to sit them where they didn’t want to go, they started crying RACISM and videotaping and hollering. And at THAT point, they were asked to leave for being jerks. We’ll never know the true story, of course, because the P.R. people will just apologize and try to avoid further bad publicity.

    • Absolutely. These had to be the first black people he ever saw. That’s why there hadn’t been a complaint before. Shame on the media for jumping on one side of the story throwing the race card just trying to start a fight…

  39. How long God, how long? This type of behavior should be brought to the President of the United States and see if he can get in.

  40. This makes no sense but how can we expect anything different when our government is jacked up and shows no respect for our President because of the color of his skin

  41. if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything…including a free meal.. dont sell your birth right for a bowl of soup

  42. A free meal for 25 people ain’t nothing to sneeze at. I know where people are going with this but as a person that works retail that would be the standard reply. If they’re expecting millions…that ain’t gonna happen. Wrong? Yes On behalf of THAT person! The corporation didn’t say those words. It was THAT person.i just don’t see them receiving more than what they expected in the first place. A meal. And this time…it will be free.

  43. Well, there’s no shortage of white people here making up stories about what they imagined happened, with absolutely no facts to back them up. I’m a middle-aged white guy, but people like these make me ashamed to be one. The comments here alone tell me racism is alive and well in America even though I (thankfully) never have to experience it myself.

  44. White people can be so damn ignorant and paranoid… nobody is looking at you or cares about you anyway! Always watching the blacks…. Get a damn life. Watch your own! @Arlene, Monica and Sofia your parents raised monkeys, and you hoes don’t have a damn clue so “f” yourselves! I myself tip very well, I’m black and not loud but can get ignorant when addressed improperly by scum like you putting people down for no reason. Why are we black people being called monkeys? I def don’t look like a monkey. I will never go to Buffalo Wild Wings went once and the food is not got good, the mgr. was out of line the other customer should have left if he was so damn scared, paranoid ass honkies, looking like wet dogs! Not all of you just the racist ones!

  45. Well you know what? That’s why their racist asses will be frying wings and fish for the rest of their lives. And you’ll always get some racist ass white man like the one that commented earlier, having not been there, but so certain that those uncivilized niggas must have done something for them not to get served. There’s no way that there’s 20 black in the whole United States that speak proper English (whatever the fuck that is), that don’t use the “N” word, that have advanced degrees, that are well dressed and still not be served. I got news for your white ass MWiteman, my fraternity brothers and I, a group of well dressed black men didn’t get refused services, be we did encounter a bunch of old redneck, stupid ass, old white people in Myrtle Beach South Carolina that couldn’t believe their eyes. A group of 700 well dressed black men at a convention in a nice resort hotel. Surely that’s not possible. Get the fuck out of here, and get over your dumb ass racism or just admit to it, and then shut the fuck up. We don’t care what you think.

  46. its a shame to see how many racist ppl comment on this post. Im black, Loud AND DEMANDING but i always tip well. and the only way to know if those “black monkeys” would have tipped is if the “ALBINO MONKEYS” served them MONICA… and as for u MWhitman… were you there?????

  47. The person that told the group to leave should b fired and sued!the white person who felt threaten should of been the one to leave!and need to stay in the house if they r that scared!smdh

  48. I totally agree with him? It’s runs too deep to keep patronizing these Honkey Tonkin establishments and to keep being denied our rights is absolutely deplorable? Racism is deeper than ever in this country and when we as black Americans start sticking together and helping each other like the others(undercover)? Then we can get some much needed “Respect”.

  49. This is just a sign of our buying power in America. If we want America to respect us then we must develop our own and support our own. Don’t force people to take our money and make them rich. Have enough respect for ourselves that we never spend another dime at Buffalo Wild Wings. Boycott Buffalo Wild Wings and they will know our respect is worth more than a chicken wing.

    • If your buying power lays in buffalo wings then your folks are fucked.and until your folks can create some self sufficent business that only cater to your folks(and that’s not gonna happen) then pull up your big boy britches and get out your check book

  50. In response to mwhitman (August 24): you are what is wrong with this issue. If they were using obscenities or foul language, the establishment would have asked them to leave earlier than the 2 hours they waited. I am white and grew up in a very white area. It disgusts me that people are so ignorant in this day and age. I have nothing against any other race/creed/religion/origin, as long as they treat all others with respect. What one gives, out will always come back to them in some way, shape, or form.

  51. I went to Texas 2 years ago (my grandson was there in the air force) and I and my family were treated the same we waited at all the restraints we went to for 3-4 hours the only place we got served in a reasonable time was McDonalds. I will never to Texas again or a wild wing restaurant. Or any other restaurant that let their employees treat other people this way. They should have asked the person who complained to leave that would have been the right thing to do.

  52. This restaurant has done this before. A couple of years ago we had a going away dinner for a coworker. It was 15 of us and we experienced the same thing discrimination . We did eat, but the service was horrible. To the women that thinks this won’t go any further than a free meal., you’re crazy as hell. your people has made a “sue me” country. This the games begin.


  54. Lawsuit
    Al Sharpton
    Immediate action against the employee

    I will spread the WORD
    They will never receive my support ever…Besides every time that my family has visited, it takes a very long time to be served…disgusting acts

    SHAME on Wild Wings

  55. I love Wild Wings Café, but because I am a black man, who goes peacefully to patronize their establishment, I find this act appalling. I will not patronize this establishment any more.

  56. Apparently Wild Wings employees or management have had NO training on diversity. In the diverse world that we live in this is needed. The ability to interact with everyone equally will strengthen with this training.

  57. No sane person or group of people/family, whatever color, would wait at a restaurant for two hours for any reason. Didn’t happen as stated, don’t care who you are, it isn’t believable…try again.

  58. ALL of yall yea i said all blk or white I really dont give a fk. yall need to b worried about the qar tjat we bout to go to with Syria and stand together im tired of all this dumb shit for real idc who u r get over it. jeeze

  59. al sharpton wtf ever needs to get a fucking life u r a nobody just someone always wanting to throw lawsuit haha plzzzz go on

  60. This is sad I feel bad because being a career waitress and African American that there is no end to the bs. You down us cause you think were not good workers, then on the other end me and my family are not good enough to eat in an industry where I make my money in the first place. Topping on the cake my husbands Latino so what example are you showing my children… learn to be tolerant because were all in this together whether you like it or not, I just know what I teach my family, and hope yall have enough since to GET WITH THE TIMES. ALL THAT OTHER STUFF IS THE PAST. LEARN AND GROW UP THE WORLDS MOVING ON THE ONLY THING THATS NOT IS YOU AND HELLO TOMORROW AINT PROMICED TO YA

  61. Peewee… You don’t make any sense. Perhaps it is precisely because you are white that you find it hard to believe anyone is really discriminated against. Perhaps it just is not part of your experience…

    But then you talk about “them” and your politics become apparent. Who exactly is going to invade us when our country starts to become more just? And how on earth did you go there?

  62. I agree that it is deeper than an apology. We must not accept because I’m caught, I will say I’m sorry as a valid excuse, but we must demand better behavior period.

  63. It sounds like the host/waitress decided a large group (groups don’t tip well generally) wasn’t worth the hassle of dealing with the offended individual. This was a cowardly move. If someone is threatened, that is on them. Did this individual actually think the large group was there to rob the place? I can’t believe they were indulged in this ridiculousness. That said, if you are made to wait, with a reservation, more than 30 minutes for anything but the most gourmet food, you are being mistreated. Walk away and find another establishment that has it more together.

  64. We celebrate the March on Washington and still face many of the same racial issues.
    Economics is powerful!!! Use your voting power and finances to disable elements of racism. I don’t know all the details but waiting two hours to be served would have made me have a conversation with management. My question to you were others being served while you were waiting that may have entered the premises before you arrived?
    We must be vigilant In monitoring acts of this nature, We are living in times where the constitution of the United States does not honor or respect people of color


  65. I would like to thank this young man for posting this. I have family that I visit in Charleston and I will be sure never to patronize this business. If you discriminate against one of us you discriminate against all of us. Thank you so much for the info it is time they realize that we are human beings also.

  66. What each of those people should do is take $1000 and invest in a wing restaurant of their own. Either open on of their own or invest in someone else’s…

  67. Have we heard from the manager or customer that complained? No? Then why is everyone just accepting the black guy’s story that this is all based on race? Maybe the group was being unruly.

    The fact is large groups of black people are often (though not always) loud and obnoxious. I know, I know. I’m a terrible racist and bigot and how dare I paint the entire black race with that brush.

    The reason blacks struggle so much in this country is because any time someone points out their inappropriate behavior that person is immediately labeled a racist (or uncle tom). This allows, even encourages, the bad behavior to continue. It’s really sad and the CONSTANT cries of racism are getting so old.

  68. When will this stop, this is 2013, just once I would like to see the tables turn and so white people would know what it feels like to be discriminated

  69. I wonder if the people were white and the one person that felt threatened was BLACK.would the outcome be the same.probably not.Its 2013 people Let’s STOP THE STUPID Sh*t.

  70. I hope they do not go back and patronize this restaurant. They depend on our dollars, even if they do not say it. Please keep your dignity they think they can treat us any way they wan . Embarrass us and as long as the person that did not do the offense apologizes, then it is suppose to make things all better. No it does not because it will be the next establishment discriminating and the next. Patronize our restaurants and our establishments. Keep green dollars in black hands Period.

  71. wow really I don’t know if i’m more pissed off at the manager, the person who felt threaten or the two racist idiots heartless ass bitches monica&sophia with they stupid ass comments yall might as well put on some white hoods like the kkk you fuckin cowards…anyway …that incident is terrible if it happen like that…just sad..wild wings you should be ashame…I will say I dnt think they were sitting there quietly but it’s still fucked up…monica&sophia bring yall asses to Oakland with that bs…see what happens fuckin crackers!

  72. What do you expect ………there in Charleston, SC…….I growing up with a white mother and black father, I have experienced racism first hand . Racism and discrimination has been here since the start of time. And it will be here till this world ends…..

  73. This touched my heart especially just by me going to the show on yesterday to see The Butler….. Please keep me posted & I will be passing the word of NOT SUPPORTING this franchise……

  74. There is no confirmation of these events from anyone but the complainants and has anyone ever heard of Radio News before today?

    I have no idea this happened or happened the way it was told. Could have been.

  75. As a gesture of solidarity, everyone reading this news worthy information should boycott this establishment to show that we, as a society, black and white, are not going to accept this type of behavior. Wouldn’t you think it would have been easier to move the people who felt threatened by the large crowd, than trying to seat the 25 patrons somewhere else, because, of course, they would have had to wait another 2/more hours to be accommodated? Let’s show that “one voice” does make a difference.

  76. people that agree with this manager’s reaction and action to oust this family have the same mentality as her and the complaining customer assume she had reason.. . when you are with family that a different mind set. why is it so hard to be believe it takes 2-3 hrs to seated when you are large group at popular place? let not say racism because that sheds the light the action. but if you have not had the experience of being treated differently then you will never know the concept. being treated differently because of your skin is much worst then being treated differently because of gender or sexual preference (stop your mind before it EVEN go there.)first she needs to be educated in (racial profiling–sorry can’t use race) handling customer service of people of different color, language,etc.the corporate office need to feel the power of the dollar.(boycott)and let it be known. because just not go doesn’t mean anything.

  77. The resturant should have thrown out that one customer who felt threatened, in favor of the big pile of cash that the 25 people waiting would have spent in the resturant

  78. MWhitman – with all do respect, you are part of the problem.
    Racism exists.
    If the party was causing a problem, they’d have been ejected long before.
    You weren’t there, but you are judging the situation based upon…?
    You’ve not met any member of the waiting party, but you’ve decided what their behavior must have been and judged them before knowing anything about them.
    Judging a person or person’s character before knowing the facts is prejudging.
    Yeah – that’s the origin of that word.
    You’re guilty..

  79. They all should have went inside and made this statement “ALL WHITE RACIST PEOPLE IF YOUR AFRAID OF ME BECAUSE IM BLACK,PLEASE LEAVE”NO, for real its Very Sad!

  80. All I can say is WOOOW ! In 2013 ?? REALLY ?? So ONE ignorant racist can have an establishment REFUSE service to a group of people because of their SKIN COLOR ?? Ok then, since they don’t want our (blacks) business, let’s take our GREEN money elsewhere !

  81. Racism is truly a disease. The irrational fear some have at the sight of blacks gathered together should be diagnosable. It is a psychological issue from within the individual who has the irrational fear. Therefore, her sick ass should have been the one asked to leave.

  82. We are only hearing one side of the story. Can’t pass judgement saying the white man is racist till you hear the other side. Heck, we don’t even know that the other person is white. It’s racist to assume he is white.

  83. If you listen to some of the news shows they insist racism does not exist but they are not the targets of the racism so how would they know we as African Americans deal with it on a daily basis

  84. In Charleston, SC there are a lot of these cases going on, I am happy that he took the initiative to publicly announce his situation . A lot of is just brush it off and keep moving because it is a part of our everyday life. Hopefully this makes other people aware that they too can get justice.#speakoutloudsourheard

  85. Wild Wing Cafe is a money-grubbing corporation and I don’t care who feels uncomfortable, WWC isn’t going to turn-away 25 paying (although probably non-tipping) customers because one person feels uncomfortable. I’m calling bullshit on this story.

  86. This group needs to stage a formal boycott. We suffered this treatment at diner counters in the 60s. Young people must keep the pressure on the moral conscious of white America or suffer their at will indignation.

  87. Bigots will now be the ones waiting to be seated. South Cowlina is swarming with them and they must support their Arian brethren. After a couple of weeks, the racist a-holes will forget all about this. (Heck, most of them are blaming President Obama for what Bush did.) Business will then plummet at Wild Wing Café and no one will ever have to wait to be seated again!

  88. You folks take these people to court or do whatever you have to do, because this is unmitigated BS!!! I’m 48-years-old and white, and while it disturbs me to hear one of you say “Don’t go back to sleep, My People” I have to admit that this restaurant has set us back, ONCE AGAIN, when progress was finally starting to be made.

    When I was in my early 30’s, I visited a “Popeye’s Chicken” in Memphis, TN where I experienced my first racial discrimination of this very same kind. I waited in line like everyone else, but when my time came to step up and order, the girl at the counter called the person behind me up and waited on her, and on every “person of color” that walked in the door after that. Only after I was the last person to be waited on did she take my order. When I tried to object, I was simply ignored. It’s a terrible feeling and it makes you feel less than human. I’m grateful for the experience today though, because I can say that I’ve experienced racial discrimination, and I KNOW how it feels first hand.

    While this is a bad situation, please, don’t set us back to the 60’s with race riots and whatnot. Sue the hell out of these folks, because this action was illegal. That’s the reason that the laws are in place. And even while S.C can be a little backwater in regards to race relations, the laws should still hold up in a case like this. Take these bastards to the bank, but don’t blame the whole white race for this instance. I know that myself personally, as well as many others, are behind whatever action you take 100 percent!

  89. Why was the shift manager not fired. How is it protocol to refuse service because a patron is nervous because of black faces. This isn’t the fifties or sixties. Why was the white patron not nervous about white patrons one of them may have been a serial killer mass murderer psychopath or serial rapist or bomber.

  90. I wonder if a person of color could ask that same restaurant to deny a white person service because they felt threatened by their presence…and have that request granted???!!! Hells NO

  91. That’s what you need to do to these businesses,expose them in the media internationally.hit them where it hurts,their wallets.funny how they never responded until it was exposed on social media.also very typical for them to offer a free meal,it’s actually insulting if you ask me.whoever that person was who complained ought to be banned for an amount of time and the manager fired.

  92. This happens more than is being reported and I am glad you put this situation on fb. Now the owners want to talk because money is involved. We have so much power and don’t exercise it. The power of the dollar. Cudos for you and the group

  93. I don’t believe, the black people were sitting quietly for 2 hours, that’s bullshit, some whites came in, not a party of 25, and someone in the party of 25, said some shit to them!! Get Real it’s 2013, somone in that part said some shit!!! That’s why they were asked to leave!!

  94. Nationwide there should be a boycott of this establishment. Not just from A frican Americans but from anyone who despises racism. Perhaps after they(the company) take the ass whuppin in the pocket, they will vhoose a better way of doing business.

  95. This is a manager who will surely lose a job. 25 people ready to spend money at your restaurant and you ask them to leave? From the headline I assumed we were talking about 25 gangsters or something but this is merely a family out for dinner. The very best kind of crowd to have walk into your restaurant. The manager is stupid and we can’t let stupid people define our civilization.

  96. @MWhiteman…. Had this families been unruly for two hours they would have been asked to leave long before. Since the White folks were uncomfortable, they should have gotten their pink asses up, paid their bill, and got the fuck on. Simple as that. So don’t make this about unruly Black folks when it really racist white folks. Get it right.

  97. For all the white people out there saying that the black people were probably cursing and carrying on thats why the one white person felt offended is pure BS. Wild Wings Cafe has never really been a family oriented place where you can just go and be peaceful and have a serene time. Its a bar where white people go and get pissy drunk and act beligerent. I work at a hotel near a Wild Wings and thats all that happens there. Its a place to have fun and drink and watch games. South Carolina restaurants are known for this type of racial profiling. South Carolina is still full of racism and its sickening to see.

  98. first, no apology could get me back to that restaurant. SHUT THEM DOWN. No one should ever eat there again. It won’t stop there. We just keep excepting this shit. No place for it in our generation. Step up and say no more

  99. You’re only getting one side of story here. I work at the restaurant and your representation of the events is way off base. The group was being loud and obnoxious to both customers and staffers. They kept complaining about their long wait and were talking about how “whitey” was able to get seated, but they were not. The problem was that they had a large group and insisted on sitting next to each other. We only had one area that could accommodate their large group and the patrons in that area were not done. So yes, some “whities” were able to be seated before them, but only because they were going to a different area. We also seated non-whites in other areas too…They made this a racial issue before anything. One of the guests also insulted a deaf white girl because she didn’t respond to one of them telling her to move (she was deaf and didn’t hear them) They were also all standing in the middle of the walk way, making it difficult for customers to leave. We asked them if they could move over, but they said they can stand wherever they want, and if we wanted them out of the way then we should seat them. The customer that was offended was offended by a particular individual’s constant uses of the word “n*gger” When asked to stop, he threw out a long string of racial epithets against one of my co-workers.

  100. Don’t know all the facts of the story, but at one point a video tape was introduced to validate some of this story for either side. But my comment is really for the racist ignorant people we have in this world. If you don’t like our kind, I am black then take your dumb asses somewhere else because since you are intelligent you do realize we are not going anywhere. Your comments and lack of intelligence will only hurt you and your kids. You will be teaching them a practice that when you are dead and gone will do them of no use. Most of you on here that keeps calling blacks or any other race racial names never do it to the person’s face. You are cowards and for all you christian’s GOD sees all and you will have to answer to him for your blatant disrespect of the bible and his ways. So to all my intelligent people, never let ignorance detour you from being the good person you are. There are bad people in every race, but who are we to judge. And to all you racial idiots, I pray you are never in trouble and a black person is the only one there to save you because I bet you will be begging for help, you fake social media thugs.

  101. You mean to tell me that a crowd of 25 automatically constitutes a boisterous group? If the manager felt so inclined to ask them to leave because one customer said something, i guarantee you if they were behaving inappropriately the other people in the waiting area where they were for 2 HOURS would’ve already complained. Im reading the comments and whats funny to me is, there are only a few white ppl who are actually telling the racists ones up here with their fractured ideology about black ppl and saying nigger how f*ked they’re being but the majority are saying nothing! They would rather argue with anyone who is trying to be civil and point out the facts. I wish a group of drunk white kids would’ve come in right behind them and tore the place to shreds. Oh, i forgot, young white kids aren’t rowdy, they never do stupid shit(They’re the reason youtube was created lol)…..i guess i can assume that whenever i see a group of 25 or more white folks together that their either gonna have an orgy, they’re a flash mob, a hoedown is about to start, they’re about to erect a skate park or its the zombie apocalypse….yeah see how stupid that sounds?

  102. Don’t just let it go like that. You have a class action suit and everyone of you must pursue it. It may be a long journey but you also are representing people everywhere. Let it be known that this simply will not be tolerated. The manager should be fired. A monetary settlement should also come from the corporate office and if not, a lawyer must handle. This type of behavior has got to stop. Keep putting Wild Wings on blast until your voice is heard and let them know you mean business! Frankly speaking Wild Wings food sucks!

  103. The shift manager should be fired … not for discrimination, but stupidity.

    Who kicks out a party of 25 people willing to spend money for that size party for 1 – one – person who has no reasonable basis for their complaint?

  104. And luckychucky, i dont believe you for a second, the manager would’ve spoke up about that and other patrons would’ve corroborated that story. These young folks are speaking intelligently, why would they have even went this far if they had been making a scene like that? Show me your proof, they have theirs..

  105. REPLYING TO: Anonymous Posted August 25, 2013 at 9:00 AM: ” I don’t believe, the black people were sitting quietly for 2 hours, that’s bullshit, some whites came in, not a party of 25, and someone in the party of 25, said some shit to them!! Get Real it’s 2013, somone in that part said some shit!!! That’s why they were asked to leave!! ”

    Did you just not read the article or are you really that stupid? I’m assuming the latter since you can’t even type in complete sentences. It specifically says in the story that they were asked to leave AFTER one of the people in their group started videotaping the conversation. The person who said something was already seated! You’re right, it is 2013 and that means we shouldn’t have to hear or deal with this type of discrimination crap nowadays. It’s a damn shame, makes me embarrassed to say I live in this state.

  106. …and the white customer couldn’t just leave instead? Good grief. I could see a reason for asking a whole group of people (no matter the color of their skin) to leave, if people were acting like they were on Jerry Springer, but the author said they were peacefully waiting to be served. Shame on the manager, for giving in to this one person. I was hoping that all this prejudice between white and blacks would die out with the older generation and we would be free to live in peace. This article heading is correct in that social media has true power. Unfortunately, sometimes social media is used to further polarize people, instead of bringing them together. My parents taught me to look at people by how they treated me and others, not by the color of their skin. And, for those who don’t know me, I’m a 50 year old white woman. (:

  107. He used “peaceably”, “peacefully”, and “patiently” repeatedly. Methinks he doth protest too much. It’s hard to believe that a group of 25 of anybody waited “peaceably”, “peacefully”, or “patiently” for two hours, much less 25 young black people. Taking it with a grain of salt…

  108. Why would management allow one to rule 25 why did she not tell the one person to leave if they had a problem ? You can’t fix this with free food it is deeper an the possibility of where this could have gone because management got angry what if the rolls were reverse?

  109. As. a Retired,Combat,Disable,Veteran I fought in a war so that this establishment could have the right to refuse guest. However, I will NOT go to a place that still practice racism!

  110. this goes on all the time every time we say racistim they say oh no you all need to get over it , get over wat how you teach the same stupidity to you kids, and the next generation, is why it will never end until God interviens on our behave.

  111. I am a white 28 year old Marinevliving in Chesapeake Va just 2 weeks ago I walked into a “black barber shop” sat there for over an hour while customers cam and went an I was never helped. When I complained all the barbers said “your in the wrong neighborhood”. All the black patrons laughed like it was the funniest thing they ever heard…..but I just walked away….ignorance is color blind!!!

  112. What restaurant manager would do this, without documenting the fact or basis for doing so, based totally on the word of one customer? That is just incompetence. Without that evidence, of course this looks like blatant racism. Maybe they were being loud and obscene, maybe not, but without documenting the evidence of that, the controversy is well deserved. If I had to be an a-hole and judge based just on that picture of the group standing in the rain, they sure don’t look like a bunch of thugged up loudmouths, they look like JPF. (Just Plain Folks.) Post a sign in the restaurant: “Loud and obscene guests will be asked to leave. We will record instances to document our request. If you disagree with this policy, then eat somewhere else that doesn’t have this policy.” Send the ass’t manager to Radio Shack, spend the $35 necessary for the little recorder. If a group is being loud and obscene, record the evidence, then ask them to leave. You’re covered. Compare to this sad alternative: “A customer complained for whatever unknown reason. So we asked a group of 25 to leave.”

  113. A free meal is not the answer. That’s very condescending and ignores the big issue sitting in the middle of the room. What will they do when the next white customer makes the same request? That worker should have been fired, an apology made, and a party given at ww expense. I’ll never eat there again because of this incident.

  114. Racism is truly a disease. The irrational fear, repulsion or intolerance some people have at the sight of being around a person of another race or as in this example, “blacks gathered together”, should be diagnosable in the DSM. It is a psychological issue from within the individual who has the irrational fear. Therefore, her sick ass should have been the one asked to leave and referred to a therapist.

  115. Sitting here read some dumbass comments mainly folks saying they probably would of been loud and annoying in a family restaurant. Really?!!!! It’s fucking wild wings cafe not ah family restaurant y’all white folks dumb as hell y’all loud as hell too screaming, yelling woohoo bro!!! Fuck y’all let someone tell me and my people I can’t sit down and eat and I didn’t do anything wrong ima tear that bitch up !!!!!!

  116. @ Sofia and Monica: You coward crackers must think that someone must want to be around your funky asses. Bitch I would not spit in your mouth if you needed a drink of water to live. I am just as hateful as your asses, but with a twist, bitch: I will lay your asses out totally if you get in my way or disrespect me…How!

  117. I could have told you that Wild Wing Cafe hires a certain type of people with a style of thinking that is not mainstream. If you want to define that style of thinking as racist then so be it.

  118. It saddens me to say that I am not surprised, by the injustice coming out of North Carolina. under the terrorist tea party branch of the Republican Party. Jim Crow laws once again rule. from vote registration, to a woman’s right to choose, we know best. as far as the restaurant/Wild wings, stop patronizing. Support businesses that respect you.

  119. Well, Mr. Brown, you can count me in as one whose family will never go there again. I live just outside of North Charleston. I am shocked at this story and hope the publicity really opens their eyes as to what they did!!! And–yes—I am white.

  120. What about the assumption here that the “white” person was uncomfortable because of skin color? I think there is more to this story and I just can’t see a manager kicking them out because someone is “uncomfortable” with no further explanation. The fact that the people in this group normally go to the establishment with no issues I think says a lot, they have come to expect great service and have not been hated on in the past. Again, something is being looked over… this is not to say that racism isn’t real but in this case “uncomfortable” doesn’t cut it for any logical human being.

  121. This is 2013. No wonder I never ventured to Charleston. Discrimination cannot be tolerated. This day and age, we use our heads. Social media can bring a company down. Buffalo Wild Wings lost a customer here. So sad! Free meal, how about an open Apology to the Brown family, and fire the manager. Apparently she didn’t need the job based on her behavior!

  122. Reminiscent of Woolworth’s lunch counter in the last century. This situation is intolerable as the manager and allegedly wronged customer are both intolerant! A situation such as the one described should be brought to the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice. The bigots and tea party must be held responsible for the blatant discrimination and violation of federal laws. President Johnson would not have let these malcontents get away with flaunting the constitution. People are all in your face when THEY perceive THEIR gun rights have been violated. But when it comes to THEIR violation/denial of the rights of others, THEY (tea party/ bigots) are copacetic with the situation.

  123. naggers will b naggers in chappell voice lol always wanting attention omg get over ur selfs as they would say they was probably turned up. and dont go to wild wings no one cares lol aint nobody loosing sleep over it… have a good day im going to eat at wildwings YUM!!!!

  124. 1. Not that I am not angry about this, but the color that counts is green. Send a message to boycott Buffalo Wild Wings in all states.

    2. Get educated on business ownership, pull your talent, funds & resources together to open your own restaurant/businesses and patronize them. Don’t be jealous, expect a discount, be rude to the guest, not open on time, serve inferior product or tear down the establishment once it is opened.

    3. Continue to use social media as way to notify everyone of the continued discrimination, as well as announce quality businesses to support. When you find a good business spread the word and encourage others to support it.

    4. Do what Antoinette said in a previous post ” First, I strongly recommend calling out the conservative media, Fox News and conservative hosts publicly. Tell them you are on to their race-base scare tactics, and you will not tolerate it. Secondly, I would send numerous Tweets to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and inform him this scare tactic will cause the GOP to lose in 2016. Tweet him at @Reince. You may think to yourselves, “They don’t care.” Believe me. They do take this seriously. They know in the next few decades minorities will be the majority. I’ve been in the political game for years. Trust me on this one. – See more at:

    5. Educate your self on politics in your state, county, township or city. Register and then VOTE IN EVERY ELECTION, no matter what roadblock or suppression tactic they use!
    The 2014 Mid-term elections are so important. Learn from the results of failing to vote in 2010.

  125. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. If you feel that strongly about being around black folks, keep you white butt at home locked behind closed doors. I am white and have no problem being around black folks. I grew up with them and my very best friend is black so put your big girl panties on and get over yourself. After all you are only a speck in this world. I can’t believe people are so narrow minded that they can’t even eat in the same restaurant as black folks. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  126. This is the main reason why I never travel,visit or patronize anything in the south (unless I’m compted)..I’m born and raised in NY..I’ve traveled extensively in my line of work but I’ve never experienced any blatant direct racial discrimination that I’m aware of however I’ve always believed that ppl in the deep south ie: (Alabama,Mississippi,Louisiana,Tennessee,Kentucky,the Carolinas,Georgia to name a few) still hv residents who are 65 and over meaning they were teenagers during the race riots and most likely remember Jim Crow laws,fire hoses,bombings,lynchings,German Shepherds,segregation,injustice,corruption etc..,and they had to make a choice at that time to co-exist with their neighbors,they were either racist bigots or probably hated by their white counterparts for going against the grain..I’m sure that 50% of the ppl who hv grown up and lived in these dangerously prejudicial locations were racists & had to unwillingly comply with the civil rights movements of the late 60s to live comfortably with their white counterparts and have those deeply rooted racist thoughts today but know that the world is so self conscious of outright racism that they suppress their true feelings in public situations.Screw the south,there’s prejudice everywhere in this country but why live in places where its outright blatantly exposed and then be surprised?N.Charleston SC?Come on man,hicktown USA..Doesn’t shock me at all..Ppl of color need to remain diligent,progressive,pursue education,own property and businesses,be a decision maker and root out these racists ignorant idiots..South,lmao

  127. Sounds to me like we’re only hearing one side of the story. He’s the only one who’s saying what happened, and how do we know that large group sat there for 2 hours. Without making any noise or causing some type of disturbance. I live in sc, and I can tell you it is NOT always like this. I can’t tell you how many times i’ve gone in a store or gas station and felt scared because there are people in there acting suspicious and cracked out. People need to quit playing victim

  128. okay…soooo is this race baiting, playing the race card or my favorite reverse racism? or maybe we should blame this on obama? because racism OBVIOUSLY doesnt exist anymore *sarcasm*

  129. This is too much. If someone sneezes loudly now ppl might feel threatened? Sheez! I’ll eat by black folks. White ppl, quit being scary!

  130. Things like this will never be published in the paper, so thank goodness for Facebook.

    No, an apology and free meal won’t fix this. And while my first instinct is to pass around a petition to boycott, that will probably just create more division. Certainly WW has to know that this type of behavior is not acceptable – and like the kids in Newtown belong to all of us – the group thrown out is part of all of us too. Someone needs to sit down with WW management and explain the Civil Rights Act and good management. I sent the article out to everyone I know and I’m posting it.

  131. This is very sad that across our nation we still have to encounter things as such. Me myself as a black single mother of 4. 2 girls an 2 boys. My daughters are some what at advantage over my boys because as young black males they are the ones that are highly statistic. It’s situations like this that empowers hate in our children, therefore my job as a single black mother is extra hard. You are right the answer to this problem is not a free meal but we need justice because people who feel this way needs to know they we”black people” have the exact same rights as they do.

  132. Come on people. I wasn’t there but if a bus pulls up with 25 people the small business isn’t ready for that. First they need to be seated. That means 6-8 tables available at almost the same time so they can order together. Other customers are arriving so you tell them you cant take them,all tables are taken”. A reservation would have been in order. The Kitchen couldnt handle 25 orders at one time The logistics just aren’t here to handle a bus load of people at one time. And it just gets worse from there. I know the black folks are always the victim now.
