Allegations Of Racism At NYC's Newest Gay Bar — Truth Or A Smear? Comments (0)

Rebar NYC just opened where G Lounge used to be, a much-needed new gay night spot, and already there are multiple claims that its marketing strategy and door policy are less than welcoming to men of color, particularly black men.

Edugaytion found detailed personal accounts from black men who claimed they were told the club was full, but who later got in and saw it was not full — and that the clientele was mostly white. They concluded the club was deliberately keeping the black quotient down, which as we all know has happened at clubs in the past.

But is it happening at Rebar NYC?

Quite a few people on the bar's FB page have spoken out (not counting the people who weren't even there or the lunatic who responds to positive reviews with Do you hate black people?). One noted that Rebar may be trying to thin out black attendees with a random policy — no hats after 10 p.m. I don't get that at all, but it reminds me of how incensed white people get at various black fashion statements (sagging jeans for some reason can turn white liberals into Strom Thurmond):

Here is a firsthand observation from a patron who was at the bar three nights in a row. Earl Fowlkes is not someone who is looking to drag a new gay establishment or to cry racism where it does not exist, so if this was his experience, it should be taken seriously: 

Some of the complaints might just be people exaggerating (“there were only five black people inside”) , but I think it is a huge mistake on the part of the club to push back defensively. Edugaytion quotes an unknown person answering the phone as saying:

We have no statement. The situation is not real ... We're not going to give it credence at all ... We do not want to expand upon that. If we did, we would do it online.

Though they were not posted in response to the uproar, some photos from opening night do not show an all-white establishment.

Images from opening weekend posted by the bar's owner, Frank J. DiLuzio: 

There appear to be arguments on both sides, but I think if the club owners and staffers get too caught up in pushing back and telling people who honestly felt excluded  that they're just plain wrong, they're not going to achieve success. If I were them, I would rededicate the establishment to inclusivity, be mindful of who gets to be on special lists if the line outside is disproportionately black, think twice about marketing images that don't include black men and finally, issue a more conciliatory statement — they can definitely word it to express their profound disappoinment to be accused of something they did not do intentionally, while still acknowledging that a number of patrons organically felt shut out.

Better to fix their optics, especially since I assume they would say they're not deliberately trying to keep black people out.

Hot on the heels of the story of a white supremacist who traveled to NYC with the stated intention of killing black man, residents of Lewiston, New York, started receiving white lives matter flyers courtesy of a new-to-town racist, anti-tooth activist.

Dude says he's proud of his people. Because of people like him, I ain't.

The white supremacist killer, James Jackson, has been hit with terrorism and hate-crime charges. I know this story has been in the news, but can you imagine for a moment how different the coverage would have been had the murderer who traveled to the big city to kill had been a Muslim after Christians? A black man after white men?

There is simply no way the story would not be fueling several news cycles and on Trump's Twitter account for days.

The victim slain by Jackson with a sword left this world with an unanswered question. Via NY1:

A childhood friend of Caughman is speaking out about the murder and says he can’t believe Caughman was a victim of hate.

“A friend of mine called and said his last words were, 'Why you doing this to me? What is wrong?'” said friend Carl Nimmons. “And that part just keeps on playing in my head.”
