Bars must Allow "Black" Clothing?
Dress codes are widely used by bars and other places to keep out what they see as people likely to disrupt or lower the tone of their business. There are plenty of such codes in Australia and in 99% of cases it is whites that they exclude. And England, of course, is very heavy about such matters. I was myself once excluded from a bar in London because I was not wearing a jacket.
But in Athens, Georgia, such codes have come under fire as being "racist". Dress of a type commonly worn by undesirables is banned in Georgia bars, as such dress usually is, but because lots of blacks dress in the way concerned, the dress codes are being attacked. Why potential undesirables should be let in just because they are black is not spelled out. Details here.
