To shake or not to shake….

You don't always have to chase racism; sometimes racism chases you.


My homie, Marc Lamont Hill, found that out in a very bizarre way, recently.


"CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill had an encounter of the racist kind while at a sports bar in Detroit, according to a series of tweets he sent out Friday.


As Hill tells it, he was at Sporting News Grill in Detroit Thursday night when an “old white guy” approached him and his company to ask, “What are you blacks doing here?”


Hill said the man stuck his hand out for a handshake. “So, me and the people I’m with are looking like we’re getting punked,” Hill tweeted. He said the man then asked for a handshake, which Hill declined. “Nah.”


Then, the CNN contributor said a group of white people nearby told the potentially drunk patron to leave the restaurant. “Get out of here, Henry,” Hill recalled them saying, “You’re embarrassing all of us.”


“Apparently, Henry had been using the n-word all night,” Hill tweeted. “We just didn’t hear him. They told the server what happened and they made him leave.”
In Hill’s final tweet on the matter, he said he wasn’t angry, calling the situation


“bizarre.”


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


Mediaite reached out to Sporting News Grill for comment. The manager we spoke with, who deserves a raise for how polite and concerned she was on the phone, said she was not working at the time of the alleged incident but that she would look into it and get back to us.


We’ve also reached out to Hill for more details, like whether the possibly racist man smelled like booze and whether Hill alerted management." [Source]


Yes, "bizarre" indeed.


Just some "old white guy" being true to himself after a few drinks.


Still, I take issue with Hill making the regulars in the grill look like they had a "profile in courage" moment.


They obviously knew the guy.


I wonder how many nights he dropped the n-word to the crowd while they laughed and downed Coronas? Henry was apparently dropping the n-word out of earshot of Hill and his crew on this particular night as well.


The only reason that "group of white people" told old Henry to leave was because he was "embarrassing" them, not because he was making a group of people feel like they didn't belong and that he was being an ignorant racist.


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


I don't. Not if the only reason they said "something" was because the Negroes were there. I would really appreciate them saying "something" on the nights when Henry goes all David Duke and there are no Negroes in the house.


That's what would really matter, Marc. Not acting a certain way for the sake of political correctness.
