I have been thinking long and hard about the Trump owned casino catering to a racist Highroller. What if the highroller said I only want young women with large cleavages to service me? What if he said I don't want any overweight people to service me? What if he said I want the waitress servicing me to be of Asian dissent? Am I wrong to think that all of these requests would be honored by the casino assuming the player gambles at a high enough level?
Is it illegal if the casino complies?

We have a new haircutting place here that only has young attractive females as the barbers. They make a point of this in their advertising. Do you guys think this is OK?

I just did a little reading on this.

Apparently the problem was not that he was simply racist... If a high roller said, "I don't want a black dealer," and just left it at that, the casino would probably secretly roll their eyes and say, "Okay, no problem," and proceed to take his money.

The problem was that this guy was actively and loudly being rude, crude, foul, and condescending, publicly calling women the c-word and black people the n-word. Supposedly he did it a lot, too, which is what led to people complaining, and subsequently the fines.

I didn't realize it was legal for a casino owner to gamble at his own establishment...:-)

If they can throw you out for counting, a legal thing as far as I know, then they can throw you out for anything. They say 'we don't want your business'.
That would include making room for a high roller that wants the floor.
The legal precedence, in most states, has given the casinos a great deal of leeway.
I see a conundrum here.....
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

Just call him Barron. He's always liked Barron.

It seems quite possible that some black employees were willing to comply, knowing the guy was probably going to lose a bunch of money, I guess.

But yes, it is different than someone requesting female or asian dealers. You should be able to go to work without someone saying, "get that ngger out of here!" and your boss complying. How is that not obvious?

Legalities aside, the ideal move from the boss would be to toss the high roller out on his ass as abruptly and forcefully as possible.

A casino let a high roller behave in a boorish manner. Big deal. Lots of groups go to lots of businesses and behave badly but because they spend they are welcomed back. No big deal if it was about race. Race is no different than any other factor.

Many would disagree. Do you think if asked at a shareholder meeting if Caesars would honor a request by a patron that no blacks serve them, the CEO would answer...... of course! I don't think so.....
