destardi: Many, many bars post rules such as 'pants must be securely fastened at the waist', and either 'no ballcaps' or 'ballcaps must face forward' etc. If you don't like it, go somewhere else. Call me racist, but it's blacks who are racist against other blacks...'why you speak proper?" "why you actin' white"?

Fact is, it's the subset of black folk that pride themselves on gangsta culture. Disagree? You're the idiot. Fact is, many black kids get mocked relentlessly at school or wherever else by other blacks. The reason? They speak english well, they dress mainstream, etc...they get accosted in the hallways "why you actin' white?" Get that? Speaking proper English is ACTING WHITE. That's hilarious. No, it's quite sad and a symptom of the vicious cycle of the insidious 'gangsta culture' that's flourishing. Have you seen Chicago's murder rates? Black on black crimes and murders? Did you see the black guy dressed in a KKK costume with the fact that waaaay less black folk were killed by the KKK than have been senselessly killed by other blacks just in Chicago ALONE?

If this guy wants to step up and reduce his chances of allowing people who fit stereotypes (when was the lat time a gang member was caught wearing Khakis?) into his family establishment so be it. Go somewhere else and endanger your life. Maybe Chicago?

Its always funny how many white Farkers have first hand knowledge of "black-on-black" conversations. I'm wondering how the savage black people you're talking about even realized that anther black guy was speaking "white" when they had a genuine white peron standing right there. I figured they'd be too busy whipping your white ass for being white to notice how a black person was speaking. I mean, you've got a white person who hates black people standing RIGHT THERE. Why waste time picking on another black kid? From everything I read on Fark, you should have been robbed, raped and left for dead. But for some peculiar reason they spared your life. Sounds like they had more control than you give them credit for.

Bigdogdaddy: Lots of "allegedly" in this.  Sounds like he got mouthy with the manager and got canned.  Of course it was racism.  It can't be any fault of the employee, it never is.  *rolls eyes*

Of course he had to be lying. There's no racism in MY America, and besides, he's black and you know how those people are!

FLMountainMan: DROxINxTHExWIND: AgentKGB: ZeroCorpse: An argument could be made that the baggy clothes and oversized jewelry are a danger to yourself and other bowlers. I don't want an uncoordinated twit in baggy pants or with a bandanna over his forehead swinging around a 12-pound ball in his greasy fingers. What if something slips? What if the bandanna slides down over his eyes and he throws the ball the wrong way? What if his massive jewelry gets caught in the swing and he hurls it across the alley, where it strikes a little girl who is on a bowling trip with her Brownie troop, blinding her and scarring her for life? What then, mister baggy pants? WHAT THEN?!?!

THIS. All it takes is one moron, regardless of race/colour/creed, to ruin it for everyone. Someone tries to bowl in inappropriate clothing and ends up smacking another patron in the head with a 12 lb bowling ball.

Aww Jesus Christ. You pussies are scared of out-of-control bowling balls? Smh. And these are the same people who complain about being checked by the TSA. Folks who are scared of everything have more of a negative effect on the world than the religious and the greedy, combined.

I find this offensive and demand the Mods remove it.

  no more Mods...the Rockers have taken over.

My bowling alley has a dress code, too. Pants are mandatory.

Psycoholic_Slag: I don't have a problem with the dress code. Don't dress like a gangster and you can bowl all you want.

If I want to bowl in a nice Italian silk suit I should be able to.  Some people like to dress nice when they go out - if some gangsters have the same sense of propriety as I do I shouldn't be punished for it.

"Every Friday and Saturday I have to deal with your people," Bowell allegedly said to Stinney, according to the complaint.

- Strike one.

"You know what I mean, Black and Latino People."  - Strike two and three.

What a turkey.

That's certainly one way to frame an argument.
