Re: “The Last Black Bar

I have been there and I am white. I do not feel welcomed by their customers (not being racist but come on I am white). This place needs to really control it's image and customers. The first time I went there I had a pocket knife on me and was told I could not come in there with the knife. Walked home left it there and returned. The bouncer raped me worse the the TSA and still did not want to let me in. Once inside I was one of very few white people and had to drink in a corner. Yes "reverse" racism at work, but I was open minded and did not give a shit, beer was flowing. I was not welcomed at all. The bar tenders did not want to serve me and I felt I was more then encouraged to get the hell out of there. This place's customer's do not want to fit into the advancement that is happening in the area and will more then likely not. Sorry but times are changing and the 12 22 needs to also. Maui's across the street makes everyone feel welcome no matter who you are. 12 22 will soon be torn down if it cannot make those changes and make everyone feel a little more welcome there. And nothing will hurt it worse then it's customers selling drugs in the parking lot of the church next door.
