11. I don't agree with that comparison
Bannister Mall and the P&L are two completely different areas in completely different parts of town. I have also had first hand experience. A group of my friends and I got in, all in violation of the dress code. No problem. But then we are white folks.

This is also a moral issue, IMO. Discrimination is wrong. Period.

It's also pretty naive to believe a dress code is going to solve a crime problem. How about more police and economic opportunities to lessen the temptation of crime?

I am glad to see this come up because this city has a long ugly history of racism and white privilege. I am sick of it.
