Yup, they did the same thang to Muhammad Ali after he won the gold medal in Rome. The more things change, the more things stay the same.

Maybe they just wanted people to feel safe. Decent people don't want to be around the violence that black people seem to love. Why can't they stay in the west end?

While I am not really shocked by this incident, I am somewhat surprised. I thought the the only "color" that was focused upon at the fourth street venue was green. I've been there twice. Won't go again. I do hope that Cordish, and all others involved pay through the ass for this.

It's ridiculous, and to have so many folks standing up in defense of racism... they dont know the story, but read it, and of course, it's obviously wrong, and I hope they get paid for this too...

David S. Cordish is with AIPAC, and so spending money at 4th Street Live is helping to murder the Palestinians, which the whole world knows that's what wyte AmeriKKKa's been doing for years... in fact, AmeriKKKa started out just like Israel, planting themselves on other people's lands, occupying it, then genocide. Dont wytes know any other way? Have they tried to coexist w/ others?

I remember being almost Trayvon Martin'd when I was there... just for wearing a hoodie, gonna b gettin some flak... wtf? Come on now... this happened to Muhammad Ali in the 1960s... and now it's happening again. Have we not progressed? It's 2012... how are we still judging each other by our skin colors, and not our character? MLK died over some obvious b.s.... and yet, it doesn't seem like it's obvious to many white people here in Louisville, the "chocolate" city of Kentucky... the chocolate city, filled to the brim, with WYTE supremaCYSTs... remember Louisville 1975? Remember Louisville 1968? Remember Louisville... today?

Black folks are violent? Like the Police? Like the Military Industry? Or how about this one... like the whites?

Whose more violent? Whites or blacks? Wytes been racist since 1492, and black violence is largely retaliatory... or outta oppression... or b/c of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Wytes is just for the heck of it. 75% of LMPD are white men... white men, in undercover uniforms, driving thru West End... looking for a fight... lookin to tar and feather some po man's name... over a joint... when the violence used to hurt that man is 100 times worse than the victimless crime he commits... 70 to 80% of our prisons is filled w/ potheads... really? That's the monsters who need to be removed from our society? the potheads? Alcohol is way worse than virtually all over drugs out here, yet it's glorified, and so lies become fortified. The West End is the Palestine of Israeli KKKentuckkky. It's one large concentration camp.

Sure there's racism on both sides... but wyte people... yall started it... u no u did. Now it's up to u to stop it.

Actually, in the pre-integration days that would be a more realistic scenario - and more helpful to African-American entrepreneurs.

Still, the racism (if it exists) can't be condoned. The courts need to be prosecuted.

He's not a 'black' POTUS, he is a Mulatto that is more White than Negro, anyone not knowing who he was would look at him and think him middle-eastern. If he was a pure Negro he would never had got in the first time. I doubt the US will ever have a REAL African American President.

Actually,'bicuriousnow' AKA selorna spammer, it's not just Whites thinking they are better than Negroes, it is just that YOU live in a White country - 72% of population - and so the White view is more prevalent and transmitted.

Asians and Mexicans also think they are better than you, and in fact, many Asians do better than White people in intelligence studies.

If you had ever gone to school, you would know that in class some kids would be brighter than others. The brighter kids would, most likely finish school, continue education, get a couple of degrees and a good job. 10 years later, the bright kid, now a world renown doctor of physics or something, bumps into one of the dumb kids he knew. The dumb kid is still doing cleaning jobs, in between periods of welfare.

Which of those two people, do you think, would feel great about his life, and, possibly, look down on the other kid?

TBH, if black people just actually tried harder or tried at all, White folks would be a bit happier, but when a particular ethnic group of a society is disproportionately represented in all the negative areas of society from welfare to crime, and they don't seem to care, who can blame Whites, Mexicans even Native people looking down on them.

I think recently it's the fact that blacks are the biggest group of murderers in US society, shocking, truly shocking.

Some would call it racism, so would call it freedom.

A business has the right to serve what it wants and who it wants.

Personally, I would rather a business, say like a restaurant, banned me from entering because they hate my skin color, breath, tie or shoes, than let me in and spit, shit and jack into my food.

Actually, he's enough of a "REAL African American President" to get at least two white, Republican-supporting ladies fired from their jobs for publicly voicing their opinion about a N***er being in the White House.

Why the odd pretense about the man's race, Schrodinger??
Just doesn't seem realistic at all, given the sentiments of the electorate. The news is out there for anyone to read:

Presumably those ladies also spoke for millions of others who were wise enough to keep their thoughts to themselves - or at least not posted on Facebook.

There's more whites on welfare, and in prison, and doing all the crimes. There's some Kentucky counties that have 95% white pop... so whose to blame there? Come on now... you know what he says is true, and he was treated that way b/c of his skin color. Muhammad Ali threw his gold medals into the Ohio River, and stood up to the Vietnam war... y should he help a govt kill and murder other poor brown people, when they doing the same thing right here? No vietcong eva called him a nicker. Yall did. Yall the reason he went radical. It was his only choice. Even MLK wondered if integrating into a burning house was a good idea, just b4 he died. Fred Hampton... Huey Newton, they had a breakfast program, and was creating a system, outside the system... if we cant change the govt, and then we can change ourselves. I wont live in an area that has these confederate hillhonky pillbilly wyte supremacysts spouting off at the mouth whereever they may roam. They are archiac, they are yesterday's news and problems... when AmeriKKKa is being better with gays, KKKentucKKKys reverting back to AmeriKKKans slavery days of yore... sorry Lincoln lied to yall, and yall thought u got to keep ur slaves if u fought for the Union... but it was wrong, and shouldnt have been in the first place. Lincoln was Kentucky, and so was Kentucky, for that matter. Kentucky was for the Union, we won... so now, lets try something different now. Let's accept our black brothers and sisters as the equals we know they are. Racism is so stupid. On all sides. To discriminate anybody based on skin color is foolish. I been discriminated against, and it was horrible. Nobody cared. Just stared at me as if I was the evil one... probably waiting for me to get mad... that's all racist wants to do anyways... and what kind of people would make hating blacks the central core of their character, of who they are? That's a sick psychopath... filled w/ baseless hatred, these stupid azz racists, with the stupid pasty faces... we can do better, and that's why we should.

Kentucky didn't pass 13, 14, 15 Amendment until 1976!

This isnt the first time Maker's Mark lounge has been racist. It was racist against a Mr Green... he was the host of the event, and they told him to leave... how u gonna ask the host to leave? Oh that's right... one of the racists thought the host wasn't the host, started being racist, got his racist friends, and now they got a lawsuit... Im not sure if this is the same one, or if this is something different, but still ... 1st or 2nd time... they keep doing the same shyt! Just like u wyte supremaCYSTS beotches!

So many racists in Chocolate city of KKKentucKKKy, yet none of them take credit for their embarassing words, and backwards ridiculousness... their entire identities is about oppressin others, what a bunch of lowlife losers... u proud that ur WYTE? Why? U didnt earn that. U didnt accomplish that. And u want privilege based on that? Whose the lazy nicker now? And actually, weren't the slave drivers, who made others do their work for them, the lazy ones? Wytes were the lazy ones, whites are the ones eating up our welfare, whites have meth trailers all over, whites are obese, and violent, sexually deviant, murderous, and psycho. It wasn't a black kid who shot up the school in Connecticut. Columbine wasn't a black kid. Actually, didnt Paducah Kentucky start all these school shootings? Michael Carneal... and wasn't Charlie Manson from Kentucky? And Donald Harvey, the Angel of Death, a serial killer who killed over a 100 people, by posing a nurse... and then there's Vesago, of course, the man who started the Vampire Klan (Vampires... Confederates... wats the difference?)... wat was his name, Rod Ferrell! That's right... how many more white psychoes r there? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_Ferrell Who, seriously, out of those good and decent Caucasians out there, think racism's funny? What kind of lowlife would that be? Since 1492, yall been murderous and barbaric ... dont u think its time to stop? Is this just b/c a black man is President? U thought blacks were dumber than u, and now the race u hate, is in power... does the world make any sense to you, anymore? Do u even know what's going on? Is that why ur so scared of the world ending yesterday? How paranoid r u? What's the matta w/ u boy? dmazz nickers. dmazz, lowlife, nickers. good for nothing, dm, lowlife, nickers. spickers r way betta than the hickers. the stupid hicker nickers.

Henry Watterson: KKK member, and Louisville gave him an EXPRESSWAY!

Breckenridge: He was in favor of slavery, during Lincoln's election, helped to push pro-slavery elements during Civil War.

Gene Snyder: Voted against Civil Rights Act of 1964, just like Rand Paul would have.

Plus the UofL Confederate monument, George Prentice is right in front of the Main Library, with Lincoln hidden on the side... how many more relics and historical demons do we have around here? Wasn't King Louie 16th executed by his own people? Why name a city after a man that wasn't even beloved by his own people? Just b/c he helped finance the European revolution? Helped the colonists slaughter untold numbers of Indians, and helped them to establish slavery? Louieville... an entire city named after an Imperialist... I guess that's not as bad as Columbus, a genocidal maniac who slaughtered over 100 million people, much to Hitler's pleasure, and the Cherokees chagrin. So take comfort Louisville... at least yall aint Columbus.
