The club opened in 1989, and Mr. Clinton plays there more often than at any club except Little Rock, said Mr. Gauldin. Chenel is 10 miles from the Governor's Mansion; the Little Rock club is four miles away.
Mr. Clinton's chief of staff in the Governor's office, William Bowen, said that he and others were sponsoring nonwhite candidates for membership at Little Rock, but that none of the applications had been acted on.
Little Rock Country Club's members are admitted by a board of governors. The initiation fee is said to be $20,000, with dues of $150 a month.

Looks like a concerted effort to have the Clintons exit stage left. Combined with Huff Post piece about the Arkansas state flag on the same day, someone is trying to move them out of the way.

(An optimist believes we live in the best of all possible worlds. A pessimist fears this is true.)
Remember When Trump Got Palm Beachs Country Clubs To Desegregate? Neither Does The Media Donald Trump is largely responsible for desegregating Floridas wealthy sporting clubs.
The title is great. 2 summers ago when the media didn't think Trump had a chance, and he was more a celebrity story it was easy to fine news reports from the 1990's about this - and I trust stories from the time more than stories 20 years later with a political influence.
There were quite a few stories from the 80s and 90s I sent to friends. I was an early Trump supporter and the pro-Trump stories were easy to find at first but got harder and harder as the months went on. My bookmarks stopped working and google didn't find them. Last time I looked these were missing from web archives while other stores from the same time were still there. I'd love to hear an explanation for how pro-Trump stories from decades ago have disappeared while other stories from the same papers are still there. Erasing history is a big goal of the left - the monuments today are just another attempt.
