No Whites

Discrimination and Segregation seem to be alive and well, at least in parts of Philadelphia.
Saturday night Daughter #1 and fiance went to a TGIF in Philly for supper.
This particular TGIF is owned, operated and staffed primarily by African Americans. Not unusual in itself and especially for the demographic makeup of the neighborhood.
So they walked in the door. Hostess proceeded to seat them.
She lead them through the main dining hall with many televisions (with one game or another on). They noticed that they were the only non-African American people in the room.
Again, not particularly unusual for the neighborhood demographics.
She lead them to a back room. After a few moments they noticed there were no African Americans in the room. Also no televisions with one or another game on them. And no windows.
Why no one complained on either side is beyond me.
I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation for this.
Now that's some Hopenchange for ya.

midnight rider,

Could this just be a form of defacto segregation?

Oh absolutely. But segregation is segregation, isn't it? Would African Americans have accepted that explanation?

Now the kid's not making a big deal of it but she told me and I put it up here because of other things I've written that have happened to her while living and working among mostly African Americans in Philly.

If Obuma wants to promote peace love and all that he's got a lot of work to do.

midnight rider,

Defacto is different, because it has nothing to do with the law. If you went back to the same location tomorrow you could find a room mixed with both black and white people. So Defacto segregation is different, although I personally don't like either, and I'm guessing neither do you.

Does anyone think it will be any different when whites are the minority in the US? Nope! It'll be payback time and the authorities will look the other way. This event was just a glimpse into the future.
