The manager of an adult entertainment facility (read strip club) is faced with discerning customers that ask, “Where are all the white women at?” It becomes clear that at this location, white women are more profitable than dancing black women. The manager’s job is dependent on squeezing as much profit as possible to raise the bottom line. So, what’s a strip club manager to do? This was the situation faced by Danny’s Cabaret (still read strip club). According to the race discrimination lawsuit, this strip club decided to give African American dancers less favorable employment terms and conditions of than that given to white strippers. Indeed, it appears that Danny’s made no bones about having openly segregated work schedules, with better shifts going to white women. When enough African American dancers would not quit, Danny’s just kept reducing the hours. When a black employee complained about the discrimination, Danny’s canned her.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as Ohio’s R.C. § 4112.99, protects all employees – no matter what type of job they work — from race discrimination. The race discrimination attorneys at The Spitz Law Firm have posted several blogs about customers’ not being able to dictate racial preferences, including race requests for nurses, race preferences for nursing home assistants, and rejecting black servers at a restaurant. This applies to entertainers at a gentlemen’s club (yeah, still read strip club).
This tale ends with Danny’s having to cough up a $50,000 settlement.
