Years ago I saw a high roller at the bj game demand that no Orientals deal to him. And the casino gave into his demands, and changed the regular rotation to placate him, hey hey.

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?



At the risk of a high jack ( I'll live), I believe you are from Buffalo. Do you remember the places years ago on the way to Niagra Falls that gave the lingerie haircuts? Was a strip club where you could get your haircut basically. Good times back in the Bickering Bills days.

This caught my attention, sorry.
Can you elaborate on the haircuts, or barbers, or post pics, or SOMETHING?

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.....



What if it was a wealthy black who requested that he have only black dealers? They would fall all over themselves to provide that.

That may have nothing to do with the fact that they don't like "Orientals". It's a common belief female asian dealers are harder to beat(at blackjack.)

There's a very good BJ scene in The Runner 1999 that deals with this issue.

If I ever become a high roller I'm going to ask for a Chinese girl with green eyes to be my dealer.

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.



Except legally it is. Race, gender, and religion are all protected groups. You can refuse service to "anyone", but if you do it against a protected class the reason cannot be because they are a member of said protected class.

Also there are hostile work environment laws. Courts have also found that employers can be found liable of creating a hostile work environment if a customer is racially discriminating and the employer does not attempt to prevent it. http://www.schwartzandperry.com/Blog/2014/May/Employer-Liable-for-Hostile-Work-Environment-Cre.aspx .
