A downtown Charleston night club has received furious online reviews from customers claiming they experienced racism while at the establishment, reported The Post and Courier.

On Friday, Deco Nightclub, had 200 negative reviews about the employees and company policies that allegedly discriminated against people of color.

The reviews state that employees declined customers services and entrance into the nightclub because they failed to have a membership-only card or adhere to the dress code policy.

Kaitland Paige, a black student at Coastal Carolina University, said she watched a woman entering the club with only a driver’s license, after being denied entrance because she didn’t have a membership card.

The club also turned away Jarvis Be, a Filipino resident in the area because he didn’t have the membership card.

However, on The Deco Charleston website, there is no indication that guests need a membership card to get in. Ryan Medeiros, a white Charleston resident, said they have never asked him for a membership card.

The nightclub also turned away people of color because of their outfits. “[The bouncer] was letting in people who had on flip-flops and shorts, so the fact they’re saying it’s a dress code issue, that’s a bold-faced lie, because I called the club earlier that day to confirm the dress code,” Paige told The Post and Courier.

On Friday Deco Nightclub spokesperson released a statement on Facebook saying the company is looking into the allegations and that a few employees have been fired.

“Our management team, partners and employees thank you for your patience and feedback as we continue to improve your experience at Deco,” the statement reads. “We immediately discontinue any type of membership program. All current VIP cards, etc., will no longer be accepted or required as a means of entry for anyone, anytime. We have cut ties with employees who are not aligned with our company’s core values of collaboration, communication, and inclusion; and will continue to seek out new employees to better serve you.”

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

Published

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."

"Georgia Republicans don’t mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that they think will help them," he writes. "They only mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that threatens to harm them."
