NO, SEE, WE ACTUALLY HAVE LAWS AGAINST BLATANT RACISM

A strip club in Wisconsin is making people angry, and it hasn’t even opened yet.  Why?  Because of this sign.

May I also point out that “everything used” is not something you want to see on a strip club?

Can you believe that?  For the last time, people, apostrophes are only used for possessives, not for plurals.  Oh and also all the racist.  The owner defends himself thusly:
“If I’ve got a problem with you it’s going to be on the front of my store.  I’m going to stick to my guns because I think I have the right as a business owner to reject service to anyone. It’s not all the black people there are just a few bad ones.”

There is neither enough face nor enough palm in the world for that kind of facepalm.  He is one “you people” away from being a movie villain.  We can take the easy one first, and that’s the play-it-safe-by-assuming-all-black-people-are-criminals strategy.  Bold, ignorant, and racist, but not illegal.  It’s that “reject service to anyone” issue that bugs us because, well, it’s not true.  According to both federal and state law, it’s illegal to reject people from a business based on race.

Nice try though.
