A group of Black patrons in Charleston, SC are reporting that they experienced the type of overt racism that was rampant throughout the south during much of the twentieth century. It is reported that a group of over 20 Black customers had to wait close to two hours before being serviced at the Wild Wing Café. After finally being seated, they were asked to leave because another customer felt threatened. The customer, who was white, did not feel comfortable with such a large group of Black people. One of the patrons wanted to capture the incident on a cell phone and that is when the manager became rude. “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.” WNEM TV 5 news reports that the corporate office has not responded to the incident. www.liveitloveitdoit.com
