TAYLOR, Mich. (WJBK) -
Employees at Beer Belly's Bar in Taylor have been receiving threatening phone calls after a video began circulating the Internet that suggests the bar does not allow "colored" customers.
A sign hangs outside the bar that reads "NO COLORS ALLOWED." Some understood the sign to mean no black people were allowed inside, but the owner explains why that is the incorrect interpretation of the sign.
The sign actually refers to bikers not being allowed to wear their gang colors on the property.

Lord, are people really that dumb that they couldn’t figure this out on their own?
He could add to the sign a picture of a local biker jacket with the big red X in order to clarify his intent.
If the sign was meant to prevent minorities it would have said “No COLOREDS allowed”
Negros were called “coloreds”, not “colors” back in the day
Oh, those downriver girls [sigh]. You could look but not touch . . . and even looking might get you a beat-down.
Yes. And they vote for democrats.
A lot of them are. A lot of they're "leaders" and the media know this and make issues out of these types of things to stir them up.
In my experience ANYONE wearing colors in a bar, especially if they are not with ten of their closest friends, is asking for trouble.
Even when I see these “Sons of Anarchy” shirts I imagine these d-nozzles wiping the floor, losing their girlfriends...
How stupid does a person have to be to not know the difference between “colors and colored”.
A tongue stud?
Must be for weight control. That’s a big....ah whatever.
“Lord, are people really that dumb that they couldnt figure this out on their own?”
Think of the dumbest person you know.
The collective intelligence of the American public is less than that.
None of us is as dumb as all of us.
Then add to that the Perpetual Offended and the Grievance Industry and I am sure they will be able to shut Beer Belly's Bar down or at the minimum obtain a pretty good 'settlement' from them.
Yikes, the wife has some cousins living in Taylor.
Guess they call it Downriver for a reason.
Anyone who does not know what “no guns, no knives, no colors” means deserves to get their asses kicked inside the premises.
One could make a living selling silhouette targets with that mug.
You’re kidding me. Some people really think that sign has anything to do with race?
Sounds like a history professor I had who accidentally used the word “niggardly” in a sentence that had nothing to do with racism or anything in any stretch of one’s imagination and set off the most ridiculous charges of racism by the Negroes in the class.
Good old Taylortucky, also known as Taylorbama.
I saw what you did. heh-heh.
I've never played wearing a cup, ever. I misplay the first linedrive to come my way, and everyone on the opposing team started shelling me. By the end of the third inning, I was playing five feet onto the outfield grass, with no hope of making a throw. My friend benches me, and I said, "sorry, but thanks."
There are some big boys in Taylor, and they can hit.
Let’s see who gets there first: Jessie “I spit in white people’s food” Jackson or Al “I can be offended by any damn thing” Sharpton. Quick Jessie and Al . . . There’s money to be made.
I know a couple of black bikers and I doubt they would be so easily confused by the sign.
Sounds like my brother’s stories about playing semi-pro ball with dreams of being in the Majors.
“There were two guys on our team who had washed out of organized ball at the Class A level. And they were SOOOOO much better than the rest of us....what the hell was I thinking?”
Lord, are people really that dumb that they couldnt figure this out on their own?
They don’t want to figure it out.
Deja Vu. Just like when I opened that specialized Laundromat that filled the washers with bleach water. Everybody totally misunderstood the “Whites Only” sign.
Could be quite exciting when the race pimps show up to picket the bar and meet the biker customers.
Kind of makes you think some people are just sitting around looking for something over which to be offended, doesn’t it???
Hey for the right amount of money and deposited in their accounts j, jackass and al, give him a sandwich, sharpton will gladly assemble a rent a mob protest.
Awe....My Lil Pony all growed up!
I can understand the intended meaning of this sign, but really I do believe the owner needs to change it...
some of us can still remember “no coloreds allowed” signs...
he can just say, No Biker Gang Colors
easy enough. just a kindness to avoid the possible confusion is all. just a kindness.
You can’t fix stupid
I think he’s being pretty niggardly in who he let’s into his establishment. That’s a black mark on him.
The guy who made that sign was niggardly with his letters.
Now we've gone from racist to sexist.
If people weren't so niggardly about increasing their vocabularies, we wouldn't have these problems.
He had to know how that would be interpreted. Some people just like to provoke, and poke at the caged lion with a stick, sort of like George Zimmerman has sadly become.
Did you read Constance Cumby’s prophetic book from 1980s titled “The Hidden Dangers of The Rainbow”? We are living it now.
In this area, the signs are more genteelly worded, under the heading “dress code.”
Having spent many an hour at the Boot Hill Saloon in Daytona Beach, that was pretty obvious.
Yes they are......
