You want empathy?

Never again.

You just did the equivalent of putting a sign up saying ******s Charged Double.

A biracial rapper pulled out of a Michigan music festival after she learned that white people would be charged twice the amount to attend than "people of color."

That's illegal under The Civil Rights Act -- you know, that law that MLK marched for?

Yeah, that one.

Discrimination in public accommodations, among other things, which include anyone offering goods and services to the public, make clear that discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin is illegal.  Title II specifically identifies any place of exhibition or entertainment as covered by same.

This is a black-letter violation and there's documentary evidence.

Further, EventBrite, which ran the ticketing, is equally liable since they were taking the money.

Incidentally, Michigan, where this venue is, has had full protection against discrimination of this sort since 1885!  Further, this isn't just a law in Michigan either (although it certainly is a law) -- civil rights also enjoy State Constitutional protection.

These pricing practices are a per-se illegal act.

Apparently they've "seen the light", well, at least Eventbrite has but the event organizers themselves remain unapologetic.  **** them, **** Detroit and **** anyone who associates with either, including CNN and everyone who works for them which -- intentionally -- failed to point out that this wasn't just "bad practice" -- it's black-letter illegal.

Nope. Everything's fine. These sorts of things are only illegal when they act in the opposite direction.

As a resident in Wayne County Michigan I briefly thought about filing a complaint with the Michigan Attorney General's office. But then I realized that Dana Nessel won't do jack squat about it because enforcing the law isn't part of her agenda. This is a woman who literally ran a commercial stating that she would not be caught up in a sex scandal because she does not have a penis.

Golly, I cannot wait for charges to be laid, and the perps to be fined and jailed. Yup, any day now. Can't wait!

@Raftermanfmj Before she was elected Nessel said she was going to fire the investigators in the Flint water case. She took office on January 1, and fired everyone by mid February without ever speaking to the investigators or the special prosecutor. Then last month she dropped all of the charges that the state had brought. There is no way she is going to pay any attention to this event. She is all about protecting her own political party and advancing her own agenda, not upholding the law.

No prosecuting attorney will touch this with a 20 foot pole.

I keep asking "How long till we all get to play the game?"

If they don't want white people, just state it. Then don't get upset when a Mexican restaurant decides to ban them right back.
