A SoHo nightclub venue housing a paid party for an “urban” author turns away her black party goers (who were “fat”) and allows in the white lawyers. Gee, I just don’t understand… I thought racism was fixed now! [knuckles in dimples]
Woods, author of New York Times best seller “True to the Game,” said she arrived to find that all her black guests – some of whom had traveled from as far as Virginia – had been turned away without explanation.
“They left all of my friends and family standing outside,” she said. “I had really serious people out there: lawyers, doctors and people in the entertainment industry.
“I was embarrassed. I was just walking around in circles and in tears. They took my moment.”
A handful of her guests who were white lawyers were allowed in, she said.
“There was nobody out there who was fat, and even if there was a fat person, who cares?”
Robinson, the sister of rapper Queen Pen, said, “When I asked the doorman what was the problem, he just looked past us like we didn’t exist.”
