Wisconsin Bar Fires Bartender Who Told Patrons Over Loud Speaker That ‘Black People Are Not Allowed’

Atlanta Blackstar - 03-25


What was intended as a “joke” wound up costing a Wisconsin bar employee her job. Owners of the Sardine Can, which pegs itself at “Green Bay’s favorite dive bar,” fired their bartender on Saturday after she stated that “Black people aren’t allowed” inside the establishment. Co–owner Chris Hansen said he learned of the incident from a manager who said the female employee made the announcement on a microphone from behind the bar for all to hear.
