Racism Nonsense Run Amuck: Strippers Claim Discrimination

(Before It's News) As if racism nonsense run amuck in America hasn’t reached epidemic proportions, now racism is at the level of strippers.

Of what do I speak? Apparently black strippers are not treated as well as white strippers. What next for blacks to blame on racism? Black prostitutes treated less fairly than white prostitutes.

As was reported on FOX News,

Clothed in the power of the law, the federal government is again suing a Mississippi strip club, saying black strippers should be treated equally when they take it all off.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a fresh lawsuit Friday against Danny’s Downtown Cabaret, saying the Jackson club is still discriminating against black dancers four years after the government filed a similar lawsuit. The government also wants the club held in contempt for violating a settlement of the earlier suit.

Owner Daniel “Dax” Owens wrote in an email that he’s not aware of the filings. He didn’t respond to a request for further comment. A lawyer in the earlier suit withdrew in April, citing “irreconcilable differences” with Owens.

The new suit alleges club managers require African-American strippers to work exclusively at the nearby Black Diamonds club, owned by the same man, or pay $100 per shift to work at Danny’s. Black Diamonds bills itself as the “Nation’s No. 1 Urban Strip Club,” with locations also in Dallas and Houston.

Maybe next they can sue white men for not asking for black dancers?

The article continues,

The six strippers represented by the EEOC say they liked working at Black Diamonds less, “where patrons were allowed to grope the entertainers, where patrons were permitted to use illicit drugs and smoke cigarettes, and where there was initially no air conditioning.” The suit represents that none of those things was a problem at Danny’s.

The suit alleges the club fired dancer Ashley Williams in July 2013 after she refused to pay the “discriminatory fee.” Five other unnamed dancers are also represented. The lawsuit seeks compensation and punitive damages for all the women, as well as back pay for Williams and changes to prevent future problems.

Sadly, I know a bit about these clubs. When I was in sales, I patronized these clubs quite often. In many cases, the girls pay a shift fee to work, as there were many women willing to work the shift. For a beautiful woman, paying $50 or $100 for a slot on a premium shift was a bargain, given they could easily earn $1000 a night working.
