NY Says Club Has Racially Biased Dress Code

     MANHATTAN (CN) – The Tonic East bar and restaurant at 411 3rd Ave. instituted an illegal, racially discriminatory dress code excluding “hip-hop” and “urban wear” to deny admission to black customers, the State of New York claims in Federal Court.



      The State claims the club instructed its bouncers to keep black folks out by barring, among other things, “Sean John shirts, Rocawear shirts, Timberland boots, and Nike Air Force One sneakers.”
