Danny's will implement new policies and practices designed to prevent racial discrimination and retaliation. It also will conduct supervisor and employee training on antidiscrimination and retaliation laws and establish a confidential process for people to submit discrimination and retaliation complaints.

So, sexual harassment training, too? For the strippers?

mbillips: In before racist concern trolls lament about business owner's "rights."



Wouldn't be concerned about "rights", but I'm curious at which point it becomes acceptable to hire for certain jobs based on appearance (which would include skin color, of course).  For instance, if you were casting a movie, you probably wouldn't hire men for female roles or vise versa -- technically gender discrimination, but it would certainly make sense.  ...or refusing to hire a (say) Asian actor to play (say) Nelson Mandela would be "racist", but the alternative is absurd.

At some point in the entertainment industry, when your appearance is the primary product you're selling, it must become acceptable to use appearance to make hiring decisions.

Oh, sure, Hollywood has done all kinds of things on occasion -- but I think any reasonable person would agree that, in general, appearance is a major deciding factor in castings decisions in the entertainment industry.
 
2013-07-11 04:47:11 PM  
When I was in my 20s I dated a stripper and had a friend that would hang out in strip clubs all the time so I spent a great deal of time in strip clubs. I would always hate it when they only had one dancer at a time and a black woman would take the stage. Black women are not attractive to me so if I happen to be seated at the stage I was torn between getting up which I thought would be rude or tipping for something I really do not want to tip. At any rate strip clubs never really did anything for me even when the woman I was dating would dance or give me a lap dance I wouldn't get turned on. I think it was a matter of the this is going anywhere aspect. I did enjoy viewing their bodies and dancing, but more in a way you would enjoy beautiful artwork. I also enjoy the full nude strip clubs, but sadly Louisiana doesn't have any of those.

Under Federal law, there is an entertainment exception.  Hooters used it to bat away men who wanted to work as servers.

Mississippi law may be stricter on such matters than federal law.

The numbers on the perimeter of the table are the weighted average rates for each column/row. Here's what we can know:
Black women write back the most. Whether it's due to talkativeness, loneliness, or a sense of plain decency, black women are by far the most likely to respond to a first contact attempt. In many cases, their response rate is one and a half times the average, and, overall, black women reply about a quarter more often that other women.White men get more responses. Whatever it is, white males just get more replies from almost every group. We were careful to preselect our data pool so that physical attractiveness (as measured by our site picture-rating utility) was roughly even across all the race/gender slices. For guys, we did likewise with height.White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else-and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively. These three types of women only respond well to white men. More significantly, these groups' reply rates to non-whites is terrible. Asian women write back non-white males at 21.9%, Hispanic women at 22.9%, and white women at 23.0%. It's here where things get interesting, for white women in particular. If you look at the match-by-race table before this one, the "should-look-like" one, you see that white women have an above-average compatibility with almost every group. Yet they only reply well to guys who look like them. There's more data on this towards the end of the post.

cdn.okcimg.com

Men don't write black women back. Or rather, they write them back far less often than they should. Black women reply the most, yet get by far the fewest replies. Essentially every race-including other blacks-singles them out for the cold shoulder.White guys respond less overall. The average reply rate of non-white males is 48.1%, while white guys' is only 40.5%. Basically, they write back about 20% less often. It's ironic that white guys are worst responders, because as we saw above they in turn get the most replies. That has apparently made them very self-absorbed.

Ah, yes: Heimdall, the whitest of the gods.

Johnny Depp's part Cherokee. Or Creek. Maybe. AND, he's an officially adopted Comanche, which is how he portrays Tonto. That's the important thing; you wouldn't want some Navajo or Choctaw playing a Comanche.

And yet it was the federal EEOC doing this.

I think they got in trouble for three things:

1. The dancers were, apparently, employees. Stupid.  You should have them be independent contractors.  In strip clubs, unless it's a well-known "feature dancer" who brings in crowds, the club doesn't pay the girl.  She pays the club a stage fee for the privilege of raking in those tips.

2. The "black shift" - whoops.

3. Retaliating against someone for filing a complaint.  That's your biggest no-no.  The feds don't like it when you try to stop someone from exercising their rights. Even if her complaint had no merit, retaliating against her puts the club deep in the fertilizer.

Most of the ones who work in clubs here are not employees. They are independent contractors. In fact, they actually pay the club to work.
