A woman contacted Radio Facts who works at the Wild Wings restaurant that asked the black patrons to leave. and asked that we allow her to be anonymous. She states there are several reasons the group was asked to leave (below) Radiofacts.com, You’re only getting one side of story here. I work at the restaurant and your representation of the events is way off base. The group was being loud and obnoxious to both customers and staffers. They kept complaining about their long wait and were talking about how “whitey” was able to get seated, but they were not. The

The original story was obviously a hoax. Just can´t imagine any restaurant asking a group of well-behaved customers to leave.

Thanks, Obama, for creating racial animosity.

A "party of 25" should have made reservations well in advance and booked a banquet room. Black cannot be fixed, stupid can be fixed.

Just making themselves welcome everywhere.

It reminds me of the black group that sued Denny´s restaurants about 20 years ago. They claimed they weren´t served as promptly as whites.
Last time I looked, Wifey, daughter and I are white and have also walked out of Denny´s because we couldn´t get service. Where´s a lawyer?

Affirmative action is necessary - not because of prejudice, but because of culture. Until it costs people something to change their behavior, they will not.

Haha. Ever go to a movie theatre! Loud talking all through the show, cell phones, bantering back and forth!
No manners or consideration for other people. You can´t tell me what to do! Who are you to tell me how to act? Make it a point now to go to movies at more culturally familiar theaters.

Exactly what I figured when I commented on this initial story. I used to have a kiosk in a mall. I don´t know how many times I was startled by a party walking by that was loud and disruptive. Yup, always a group of blacks.

But it´s likely they are loud due to coming from large families where they have to be loud to be heard in the family. But they are insensitive to others due to no parental supervision. When they grow up they act like these people.

#2 -- Exactly. I can´t imagine showing up at any (sit down) restaurant with 25 people and expect to be seated in under 2 hours. Especially at a chain restaurant like Wild Wings. I´m also surprised that Wild Wings didn´t tell them at the beginning that they simply couldn´t accommodate a party that large w/o prior notice. Although, I´m sure they were worried that they´d be accused of racism if they did that as well.

Solution: People are going to have to start suing over this kind of stuff. Wild Wings should file suit for slander, libel, whatever it would fall under and take them to court. WE must start using the court system as well. . .we need more Mark O´Maras out there!

Not at all surprised. Restaurants need to have security videos of patrons to prevent false charges like these. Of course, the mainstream media will go with the "racist!" story first and never retract it even if they see the video.

Exactly #6,the last time I went to the movies, more than eight years ago a woman who was at least three sizes larger than the seat squeezed in and proceeded to open a bag with greasy fried chicken and fries and eat her dinner. Now we all know that the theater didn´t sell the food. Of course given her skin color no one would stop her from bringing it in. I wait for movies to come to Netflix. It´s cheaper and more pleasant.

The culture of the loud and unruly mob, which NO ONE appreciates.

Anyone going to a restaurant knows how seating works. Small groups are always going to be seated quicker than large groups simply because there are limited numbers of large tables. And anyone with a brain is not going to expect a group of 25 is going to get seated without a reservation or a long, long wait. Even restaurants that don´t normally take reservations will often make them for a large group. And in a public venue, only crude thugs wouldn´t respect other´s rights to enter or leave the place by blocking the way.

This is the way we have taught these groups to work. Organize and be obnoxious to get what you want. What they fail to realize is that while valid for important causes, it is not a good method to apply to all facets of life. Obnoxiousness is not a useful life skill.

Most groups that large would have made prior arrangements with the restaurant to make sure they had room to be seated when they arrived. This leads me to believe this group had other motives than just dinner.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
