In reading the comments, it's obvious majority of them completely miss the point.

I have nothing against dress codes, but they have to be uniformly enforced. You can't prevent some people from entering based on the code, but then allow other races to then enter despite wearing banned clothing items.

A new bar in Jersey City, N.J., is already racking up a bad reputation — for displaying a dress code that was interpreted as “racist.

Expecting people to wear shoes will be considered racist if we keep letting people sneak into the country.

I see nothing "racist" about this dress code.

This said, it is a private business, as long as they made their "rules" clear, I think consumers have the right to give them their businesses or not. No need to bend out of shape over this.

Just sounds like an upscale club. I have seen rules like that in some for years. They don't want slobs.

Because of the claim it is a racist dress code. I am with lilyflower3191981 when they say "This said, it is a private business, as long as they made their 'rules' clear, I think consumers have the right to give them their businesses or not. No need to bend out of shape over this." Provided the business owners are not violating civil rights or discrimination laws (which admittedly can be liberally-defined at times), the owners can choose the dress code.

So it’s not controversial whatsoever then. It doesn’t belong on this forum, and all this thread is doing is baiting people against each other, in attempt to create a false equivalency that this is somehow related to politics.

I've noticed places that want to ban hats now must use cowboy hats as the example to avoid this label.
