What about "...the right to refuse service?"

They weren't barred because of the color of their skin. Maybe they displayed questionable conduct. They may have been drinking. Maybe they were loud, acting beligerent and the owner perceived trouble. Didn't the article say a woman and TEN OF HER FAMILY MEMBERS? That's a gang.

Now the mage must defend his homeland.....Seminole tx. is actually a quiet town with little racisim. Everyone is so quick to assume that this lady is telling the truth. Why. Because this is small town Texas and you watch too many lifetime movies. the fact is there are more racists and dregs in El Paso, San Francisco,Mammoth Lakes and the other various areas than in any of these small towns. Seminole, like most of the small towns and cities of West Texas is full of hard working gernerous people who care more about your character than anything else. as it should be. We still need one another in these small communities and we care more about what a person does than what they look like.

lol...man this is so funny...
but true a majority of african american people walk around like you owe them something? Like ok, people use to be racial but thats a thing of the past...mexicans get a majority of racial slurs now..just because they are brown they are already illegal?

I just think they (black people) need to get it out of there head that they run shit..b.c. you dont...stop being rude stop being loud causing drama...you set your own image if you dont like it then change it..teach your children different..

make reservation next time you and 10 people go on a trip somewhere...they cant see color over the phone!!!

I have met some nice black people, but the bad ones, like the ones at the motel make them all have a bad name.

Mexico is not racist. There are many articals about myates in El Diario. Obama will give checks to the proud Mexican people. But why care about negros? Yes Monkey men sometimes come here to steal our women. But we are all about the rich and beautiful MEXICAN culture Here!

Everybody know we do love to occupy all of the motels to smoke crack, and that be worldwide. I don't blame the good folks of El Paso, Tx for taking precautions for such activities being taken place in THEIR motel rooms.
