The Downtown Sports Bar and Grill in Raleigh, NC is at the center of a heated controversy stemming from racial discrimination allegations from a Morehouse College alum Jonathan Wall. Yesterday, the Digest posted on the initial blog post from Wall courtesy of North Carolina Central professor Philip Christman. The story also ran on the Gawker network courtesy of Jezebel. Big traction.
Since then, legal counsel for the bar has maintained that the employee didn’t act in a discriminatory way towards Wall, because he was in the facility without being a “member,” and that membership is “a part of their liquor license with the ABC Commission.”
