Try going to Bar One on Memorial owned by the husband of Atlanta housewives, Cynthia. Its just amazing to me, that white peeps are not welcome in black establishments.

So they said, "you are not welcome in this establishment because of your skin color?"

Several black people that I know (myself included) also experienced rude treatment and service, so I don't think that it was purely a racial thing.

I think that Justin's simply ran its course in terms of "hype" and clientele. To be honest, we usually only ended up there if out-of-town guests asked to go or something of that nature. They didn't really offer anything that you couldn't get elsewhere.

That mistake makes your sentence mean the opposite of what you meant to say.

I don't mean to pick on you, but I've been seeing this mistake all over the place lately.

You are probably right, LD. I know some folks who live over there and they are not the type to go to a local restaurant and open fire in the parking lot. Often the people who run wild in a neighborhood don't actually live there.

That's a great point. People often seem to take it personally when someone is rude to them. You have to wonder what makes them think they are special enough to be singled out for rudeness.
