Washington University students made a trip to Chicago last week, with a planned and pre-arranged stop at a Division Street bar. The students had negotiated a $25 rate with the bar, but when they got there, the African American students were denied entrance.
Safety concerns, yanno. The bar manager cited a “no baggy pants” policy. So one of the students switched pants with one of the white students. They must be good friends. Anyway, I’m sure you can guess what happened.
Incidentally, I saw a photograph of these kids in their pants and I’m not even sure they qualify as “baggy.” But whatever.
