A woman contacted Radio Facts who works at the Wild Wings restaurant that asked the black patrons to leave. and asked that we allow her to be anonymous. She states there are several reasons the group was asked to leave (below) Radiofacts.com, You’re only getting one side of story here. I work at the restaurant and your representation of the events is way off base. The group was being loud and obnoxious to both customers and staffers. They kept complaining about their long wait and were talking about how “whitey” was able to get seated, but they were not. The

The original story was obviously a hoax. Just can´t imagine any restaurant asking a group of well-behaved customers to leave.

Thanks, Obama, for creating racial animosity.

A "party of 25" should have made reservations well in advance and booked a banquet room. Black cannot be fixed, stupid can be fixed.

Just making themselves welcome everywhere.

It reminds me of the black group that sued Denny´s restaurants about 20 years ago. They claimed they weren´t served as promptly as whites.
Last time I looked, Wifey, daughter and I are white and have also walked out of Denny´s because we couldn´t get service. Where´s a lawyer?

Affirmative action is necessary - not because of prejudice, but because of culture. Until it costs people something to change their behavior, they will not.

Haha. Ever go to a movie theatre! Loud talking all through the show, cell phones, bantering back and forth!
No manners or consideration for other people. You can´t tell me what to do! Who are you to tell me how to act? Make it a point now to go to movies at more culturally familiar theaters.

Exactly what I figured when I commented on this initial story. I used to have a kiosk in a mall. I don´t know how many times I was startled by a party walking by that was loud and disruptive. Yup, always a group of blacks.

But it´s likely they are loud due to coming from large families where they have to be loud to be heard in the family. But they are insensitive to others due to no parental supervision. When they grow up they act like these people.

#2 -- Exactly. I can´t imagine showing up at any (sit down) restaurant with 25 people and expect to be seated in under 2 hours. Especially at a chain restaurant like Wild Wings. I´m also surprised that Wild Wings didn´t tell them at the beginning that they simply couldn´t accommodate a party that large w/o prior notice. Although, I´m sure they were worried that they´d be accused of racism if they did that as well.

Solution: People are going to have to start suing over this kind of stuff. Wild Wings should file suit for slander, libel, whatever it would fall under and take them to court. WE must start using the court system as well. . .we need more Mark O´Maras out there!

Not at all surprised. Restaurants need to have security videos of patrons to prevent false charges like these. Of course, the mainstream media will go with the "racist!" story first and never retract it even if they see the video.

Exactly #6,the last time I went to the movies, more than eight years ago a woman who was at least three sizes larger than the seat squeezed in and proceeded to open a bag with greasy fried chicken and fries and eat her dinner. Now we all know that the theater didn´t sell the food. Of course given her skin color no one would stop her from bringing it in. I wait for movies to come to Netflix. It´s cheaper and more pleasant.

Used to be a waitress in a chain restaurant. Without exception, big groups of AAs would be (1) demanding, (2) loud, and (3) cheap (no tip). White teenagers were similar.

The culture of the loud and unruly mob, which NO ONE appreciates.

Anyone going to a restaurant knows how seating works. Small groups are always going to be seated quicker than large groups simply because there are limited numbers of large tables. And anyone with a brain is not going to expect a group of 25 is going to get seated without a reservation or a long, long wait. Even restaurants that don´t normally take reservations will often make them for a large group. And in a public venue, only crude thugs wouldn´t respect other´s rights to enter or leave the place by blocking the way.

This is the way we have taught these groups to work. Organize and be obnoxious to get what you want. What they fail to realize is that while valid for important causes, it is not a good method to apply to all facets of life. Obnoxiousness is not a useful life skill.

Most groups that large would have made prior arrangements with the restaurant to make sure they had room to be seated when they arrived. This leads me to believe this group had other motives than just dinner.

I’m glad Jonathan Chait told us that his poorly argued, slightly paranoid New York magazine cover story, “Why Race Has Been the Real Story of Obama’s Presidency All Along,” was written before his epic wrangle with Ta-Nehisi Coates over Paul Ryan and the “culture” of black poverty. Because otherwise, it could only be read as the self-pitying rant of someone who has lost a historically defining argument – someone who has been “sonned,” to use Coates’ term — and is still too hurt to have access to his powers of reason. Even with the knowledge that Chait’s cover story predates his

I´ve long had a hunch that Uber, the ubiquitous car-on-demand service, is gearing up for something much bigger than just taking people from point A to point B. The company clearly wants to use its car-service foothold to expand into a large, multi-armed transportation hub for cities — a "digital mesh," in one of its investor´s words, that can take anything anywhere, immediately, with a few taps of an app. Tomorrow, Uber is tipping its hand by launching an experimental line of Uber couriers in Manhattan who will deliver packages on foot or by bike for as little as $15.

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

Peaches Geldof dies unexpectedly at age 25

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Like a blockbuster movie that never quite arrives, President Obama’s decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline has been “coming soon” for years. He has been weighing whether the project should be built since he first entered the Oval Office, and rationalizations for further delay are thin on the ground. After a February White House meeting between Obama and a number of governors, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) told reporters that Obama had said he expected to make a call “in a couple of months.” But the White House has not even acknowledged that such a suggestion was made, let alone whether

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job.
