I went to a casino about having them try a new game. When the DTR asked if I have any live data, I replied that one if the casino that wanted it did not have the clients for this side bet to be practical. It was in Harrington DE and baccarat was only opened on weekend and only when one big player came in and asked it be opened.

I stated that baccarat is an Asian game and followed it by saying that blacks like craps. When I mention "blacks" she walked away saying that she disagreed.

I am thinking of keeping my observation to myself but wtf, Macau has 90% baccarat tables. Craps tables are full of blacks because they like rolling the dice.

While your observation may or may not be correct, it certainly is not a racist statement. There are some who want to inject the "racist" tag in everything; you can't waste your time paying attention to them. The demographics of a product do matter and should be considered in placement of the product.

Just like those trying to say Mark Cuban is racist for saying that he exercises care in where he walks at certain times, people will try to label others as racist when they really just have no worthwhile input.

You forgot I'm a bigot in the poll! Lol

As for this, meh, I think you're mostly pointing out the preferences in the games by race. It would have sounded better if you said, "more Asians play baccarat and more blacks play craps".

If you are a member of any specially protected group, no. If you look like me, yes. If the answer is yes, I would recommend a life time suspension of any perceived 1st amendment right.

I am not sure I fully understand what you mean. Do you mean if you are a minority then you are able to make racists comments?

When you are selling something you have to be careful about anything possibly controversial. You probably can't win bringing up a subject like that ... it's kind of obvious anyway. Now you've got this woman leery.

That statement is not racist. It could be construed as bigoted. There's a difference. The bigotry would be in the category of "Blinkered, narrow-mindedness, usually also very intolerant ..." The lady maybe thought she was getting whiff of that [rightly or not]
