Re: “Anti-Racism Activists Accuse Durham Bar of Being Racist

It's unfortunate that the perceived experience of a small group of people can overshadow the reality of the situation at Central Park Tavern. I'm a white guy who lives across the street in the oft-maligned Liberty Warehouse Apts., so I'm sure that many of you won't care, or believe, what I have to say.

The reality is yes, the owner is an old white guy. But this old white guy employs SEVERAL loyal people of color. Their livelihood, as much as his, is affected by this fabricated controversy. Furthermore, the clientele that is here on a daily basis is MUCH more diverse than any of the other establishments on Rigsbee.

That's what I love about Central Park Tavern- it's a neighborhood bar that, to me, seems like more of a reflection of what Durham was like ten to twenty years ago. REAL people, without a thought about differences in skin color, drinking and dancing and enjoying life.
