Default Racial Profiling at Clubs

How many clubs do you know that do this? I'm sure there's a few...however how do you feel about it?

I recently heard of a club that is now advising anyone who is "brown" that they can't get guestlist by using excuses like it's full....bla bla bla...and if they show up at the club they can't get in or are made to wait in line for extended periods of time in hopes that they'll give up. The owner thinks that all fights are caused by brown people!!!!!

Well needles to say I refuse to go to this club now...not for anything but banning any racial/ethnic group is not cool with me...especially when it's my people...ya that's right I'm brown (ok not really but I live in Malton and my grandfather lived in India for a quarter century)!!! LOL

Might as well put a sign on the door saying whites only!!!!

Sorry just had to vent that one out because I'm thisclose to going to that club and ripping the owners head off.

well i think it happeans at all the " good clubs"
I remember when i was working at Money they use to do that all the time.

I remember one guy with a turban came to the door and we told him it was a private party. the guy got pissed and i remember him threatning all the door men.

they use to do this all the time.

my black buddy walking in = thurrough pat down + "are you carrying any weapons, drugs, knives, guns, illegal material or anything else we should know about?"

I used to get the "private party" everytime I went out with CBA . . .

and we were going to B & A parties! lol.

I guess Greeks don't like Croats! lol.

It has to be done though. Changing the music will only change the race . . .
If a club is looking for a certain image . . .
I don't like it, but Owners have visions for their own clubs. If you can pick your staff/furniture/design/music, why can't you pick your crowd to enjoy it?

while I can tolerate the odd brown man in a club (i.e. Andy, Suresh) what I can't stand is when a 40+ DJ who thinks he's good, still tries to spin in clubs . . .

Those idiots should stick to weddings and bar-mitzvah's . . . !

It's well known and understood that "Indians" are the worst to deal with as a promoter/club owner/manager. I don't know why, I've never had a bad experience (maybe cuz the clubs I worked with had the same philosophy). There also the understanding that if you let in 50 one week, there will be 200 coming to your doors the next and 500 the next. Word travels fast in their community. I actually think club owners have the right to choose who they serve and don't. It's not right, but it's their investment.

Here my 2 cents....if I was an owner and 20 black dudes, asians, brown dudes, juice monkeys, spikey haired ginos, etc showed up I would not let them in.

I'm all for a god mix of everything but I don't wanna go anywhere that I see one culture dominating the environment.

And lets face it, these club owners who think that they're getting a 100% European crowd should all move back to europe. You live in Toronto for christ sakes.

If a group of 3 or 4 whatever race dudes showed up to my clubs and are well dressed, well mannered and 25+ then let them the fuck in.

RACIAL PROFILING happens in toronto in more situations then just nightclubs. I've dealt with so much bullshit over the years.

I would profile on the following:

AGE
DRESS CODE
ATTITUDE
MALE/FEMALE MIX

fuck all this being nice to everyone.. it should go back to how Money did it, and how Med Grill in montreal does it


Hot women are let in
guys who look good are let in (based on the guestlist girl/bouncers descretion)

the rest of the guys can be filled based on bottle service reservations... if the guys show up like bums, they dont get in.

This way you are guaranteed hot ass, and guys will be lining up around the corner...

If that was the case I wouldn't get into any clubs nor have worked in this industry for as long as I did!!!

If you're going to let people into your club based solely on looks then you best be prepared that you may not make as much money!!! Cause guess what!?! Those people don't necessarily drop coin at the bar.

As for Muzik....don't even get me started we went there a couple of weeks ago for a girls night out....none of us wanted to go but my friend Diane lovesssssss it there and drove us nuts till we agreed. Well let's put it this way....Diane loves it there because she's an alcoholic and was drunk the whole night. Us sober people were trying very hard not to committ suicide. Not for anything but that place has gone downhill big time. The guys all thought they were David Beckham and the girls all forgot their pants that went with their belts! LOL The rudest bunch of clubbers I've come across in a long time!

Quite frankly, I'm tired of getting slack at the door just because I'm a black man and want to enjoy myself at a nightclub.

What's with all these bouncers drinking the hatorade?

never been to muzik, never plan on going. By the sounds of it, I know EXCACTLY the kind of crowd that goes there. It's just an upscale, more expensive version of my apartment in mississauga.

If I'm going to a club, it's going to be for BOTH of the following reasons.

1. Kick ass DJ/music all night long
2. Kick ass ambience/atmosphere

Last good party I've been to?
Definitely Dennis Ferrer at Revival in Dec. 2007. Now THAT, is what partying should be about ALL the friggin' time!

Arrow Calgary...

.

I was watching in the news that several Calgary clubs have since settled with the Alberta Human Rights Commission, stemming from an undercover Global News investigation:
