Basically it all started when the deejay started playing hip hop music and attracted African Americans. Evidently the people in the neighborhood had a problem with this and complained. There was no fights or wrongdoing. The deejay was told he could play any other music except hip hop. Simply put Charlottesville caters to white people from their stores and restaurants to the nightclubs. Sad but true. You can go just about anywhere here and find a place playing country, heavy metal, techno, etc and nobody says a thing. As soon as a club starts playing hip hop and rap people start to complain. What ever happened to diversity?
No, the Belmont noise complaints have gone on for far longer, and even predate the Bel Rio restablishments. Obviously you missed Christian Breeden's late night striptease which mainly attracted Caucasians. The residents were laughed at as prudes for being upset with the dowdy disruptive behaviour that ensued. Now someone wants to make it racist because another type of music draws in a disruptive crowd of a different ehtnic background.

The fact is late, loud, combined with alcohol bring out a disruptive crowd regardless.
