Beer and bigotry in the State of Ohio

Duke Dee | Apr 20, 200102:14 PM

My wife and I were in the economically depressed southern Ohio town of Portsmouth over this Easter weekend. We foolishly attempted to order a drink in The Stag Bar on Rt. 23N in Portsmouth.The skinny, pony tailed bartender initially ignored my request for an "MGD" He then tells me (none too discreetly) " I can't serve her.It's a tradition here."He also wasn't going to talk about and turned his back on me.
Later that evening, we met an ex-employee in town.He told me the bar has an unwritten but strict policy: serve white males only.He also told me instances of womwn being physically ejected.
