I’m surprised but I didn’t a story on this. Twenty-five (25) African Americans were denied service in a Charleston, SC restaurant (Wild Wings) because a white customer said they scared him.

I went to the Wild Wings web page and found a Wild Wings restaurant in Charleston and called them. The manager was very polite. He told me that it was not his restaurant - there are 4 in Charleston. He seemed genuinely upset and said corporate had instructed all employees to say nothing about this. Corporate is panicked and trying to control this.

He then gave me the corporate phone number that is handling the “situation.” That number is 843-216-7601. I called and got a recording. The line will not open until 8:30 EDT on Monday morning.

It might be a good idea if one or two of us call to find out that is going on.

That number again is 843-216-7601. And the phone line is open at 8:30 EDT on Monday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
