Bar’s dress code stirs racism allegations

What comes to your mind when you read this description of articles of clothing, now banned at a Minneapolis bar?

– Flat-billed hats
– Large chains
– Sleeveless under shirts
– Long white T-shirts
– Athletic apparel
– Sports jerseys without collars
– Excessively baggy clothing

“You might as well say, ‘No black folks allowed,'” Michelle Horovitz tells Fox9 News. “It’s ridiculous.”

“If you do not want African Americans to frequent your establishment, then maybe you should just say that and not just break it down to the dress code,” Imani Vincent added.

Bar Louie’s Minneapolis manager told the station the edict was handed down by the corporate office.

Patrons said another company location — Minnetonka — does not carry the same notice that the Uptown location does.
