As I was sitting at one of my local bars enjoying my mac-n-cheese, 2 men came in and stood next to me at the end of bar and ordered drinks. The bartender serves them, takes their money. The owner/manager comes up to the bar, sees them and turns to them, “I told you not to come here. You’re not welcome you have to leave.” At first I thought he was kidding, apparently not since they left.

Wondering why, I looked down at the all white bar and tried to remember if I had ever seen anyone there that wasn’t white. Of course, the logical side of my brain tells me that if racism was the reason, the men would have filed a lawsuit, but then again, maybe not. It just made me wonder.
