When news of this broke, I was highly disappointed. We are in a day and age where people of all races should be allowed to come together, socialize, network etc., without a venue saying one particular race of people are not welcome. I used to enjoy going to the Clevelander during my FAMU days during Spring Break. The most memorable and forgetful moments happened at that place. To know deep down that I was not really welcome is a disgrace.
I reached out to @AFlyGuy today to congratulate him on having the ability to stand up to management and theoretically say, “eff you…if they’re not welcome, then I’m not spinning” (Would’ve LOVED to be a fly on the wall, because he would’ve served him the Brooklyn way). I am proud that he did not allow the money to cloud his morals and principles, because hey, he is a phenomenal DJ and there will always be more money to be made elsewhere.
With that said, do me a solid, #BoycottClevelanderHotel spread the word and do not patronize their business. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.
