I was having a conversation with a friend of mine tonight, where I was talking about some reviews online about a popular bar in Athens, Georgia, the 1785 Bar and Grill, where the review was written by a young Black woman, which accuses this bar of racism. It was one of several reviews on Yelp, Google, and other online review sites that also accused the bar of racist practices in not allowing black patrons inside.
