That's okay, he's likely to do what they businesses around here to and just blame Obama (even when their competition is still making money hand over fist).

I would like to go to that restaurant and order a nice big meal, chat up my waiter, and then, when the bill arrived, stand up and belt out the national anthem of the USSR (English lyrics, of course,) kiss the nearest man, shout "praise Allah!" and slap a "Clinton 2016" pin on.

See if they still want my money then.

If that were true, why didn't it happen 42 years ago?


Also, the recently added Yelp! pictures for this place are hilarious.

Internet Justice does explain my confusion when I tried to Google Chicaro and got the distinct impression that this was a gay bar, making me wonder if I was reading the article right.

Seriously, Google Chicaro and tell me what you think that place is...

If he's actively stopping gays from entering than the free market will decide that they don't want to go their, and he will go out of business.

Except that for 40 plus years he has not gone out of business.
The claim being made is not that racism exists because of the free market.
The claim being made is that the claim (mostly Republicans) make of free market correcting such issues is false.

In other words, the very existence of such a restaurant disproves the idea that the free market, if left alone, will cost a business so much money it will fail if the free market is left to do it's business. Remember, there are enough racist customers to enable such a business to survive and even thrive in a free market economy.

One may wonder, if this is just consumers spending their money as they see fit, what is the harm, right? Well, the harm is in enabling and spreading the message of hate, and in the subversive actions of prodding a racist population to be even more bold and racist than they are, possibly encouraging them to commit acts of terror against any and all they deem "unwanted".

For all those who think that last statement is hogwash and I am overly sensitive, let me posit a scenario. The Islamic brotherhood (a legal social group) opens a restaurant where the sell t-shirts and other memorabilia that espouse hatred and have messages encouraging the use of violence against non Muslims. If you think there is no harm in this mans restaurant, and feel such restaurants are acceptable to maintain a free market with no regulation, and that people should just chill until the "magical free market fairy" corrects the problem on her own, then the McMuslim Happy Restaurant should be fine as well, even if it is located on the same city you live in.

For all the people who feel minorities are just too "sensitive", how many of you would feel comfortable seeing patrons of such a fine establishment walking down the street wearing such articles promising you pain and terror for the color of your skin? Or such patrons wearing t-shirts promising to kill all Christians for being Christian? Not an environment conducive to the pursuit of happiness. But I guess as long as only the pursuit of happiness of minorities are afflicted it is okay, right.
The government in America can best be described with an analogy. The two political parties are two cats, the elite is a rat, power is the cheese, and the common people is the floor. The floor feels two cats can guard the cheese better than one. But the cats fight each other, and the rat makes off with the cheese in glee. The floor cannot leave, and soon both cats serve the rat, because the rat has the all powerful cheese, and gives the cats a small bit of it. So the floor gets crapped on by all three, as they eat the cheese together.

I'll agree with this. IF someone posts a huffpo article here, I typically read through it, then start scouring news sites for additional sources before formulating my opinion, as more often than not the huffpo author presents the account edited to their personal bias.... even if I agree with the authors position I look for additional sources.


In this case Huffpo got the name of the restaurant right. Dailykos left the word "club" off because it didn't suit the picture they were trying to paint.

Has anyone checked whether Gary's Chicaros Club is actually a club?

It shouldn't possibly exist, but that also means people aren't reporting the restaurant owner who prides himself on a N-word free zone.

I'm starting on North Grand Ave, if I go up to East Oxford and turn left I get an unmarked building or the other end of the empty field. If I go down North Grand I get a depressing row of houses. Which way do I have to go?



Holy crap, I'm asking directions so I can virtually visit a place...

but seriously, where is it?

EDIT: Nevermind, that unmarked run down building IS Chicaros as far as I can tell. Holy shit that's in the middle of nowhere in a terrible building. How does he get any customers, much less just whitey...
