“No Negros Allowed” Sign Posted On Wisconsin Gentlemen’s Club
Mark Prior, an Abbortsford, WI businessman who says he’s had problems with black people in the past, has posted a sign on his yet-to-open gentleman’s club saying “No Negro’s (sic) Allowed.” (h/t Tommy Christopher)
Federal and State law says if the business is open to the public, prohibiting people based on race is illegal. If the man’s proposed gentlemen’s club was going to be a private club, then an African American historian says he could discriminate. Legalities aside, his is a sign that many say is appalling.
“If I’ve got a problem with you it’s going to be on the front of my store,” says Mark Prior.
Prior posted his ‘No Negros Allowed’ sign after he says he had some problems with black people in the past and needed to make a policy against them.
“I’m going to stick to my guns because I think I have the right as a business owner to reject service to anyone. It’s not all the black people there are just a few bad ones,” Prior says of his problems in the past.
Prior says it’s his right to run his business as he pleases and will take this to court if necessary. Prior previously failed at attempts to open a grocery store and his own sheriff’s department.Click here for reuse options!
