    So yeah... are we living in Alabama in the 1950s?

    Yeah the stories of Kung Fu continue... this was recent:


    2014 was a bad year for Kung Fu Saloon. The bar chain, which operates locations in Austin, Houston, and Dallas, made all of the wrong sorts of headlines. Over the summer, its unspoken dress code policy was shown to be racist by patrons, who made videos demonstrating that black customers were kept out despite similarly dressed white people being allowed in. (A former employee of the Dallas location corroborated those claims.) :eek:

    Life can be hard as a black man, but only if you spend your weekend filming white people's ankles.

    I guess Kung Fu is close to done. I was hanging out with some friends last night and one guy was telling me how one of the bartenders got busted putting X into girls drinks.

    Is that illegal? A person who runs a business knows what clientele will spend more money, add to ambiance etc. Places with door policies are wi thin th eir rights to refuse service to patrons wi th out explanations.

    I thought this would be about most underage drinking busts, or arresting people for being drunk in bars. Good to know the TABC is doing something worthwhile with their funding. Now if they'd just cut out the stupid ****.

    Yes, yes it is illegal to not allow someone in based on the color of their skin. If it was really a dress code, they would refuse white people too.

    Make a copy of your D&D posts and show the door guys. They'll let you in.

    In contrast to p*****s like you I know have I more to offer society than racial whining and more to gain from it than watered-down drinks and forced interaction coerced at guiltpoint.

    I'm in Austin too and I haven't really noticed people being turned away there. I'm white though. I avoid kung fu because of all the douche bag bros that go in there. I think every time I've been to kung fu there has been some sort of altercation because of bros broing.
