Blacks need not apply in Beijing?

If black folks are not going to be outraged by the Chinese financing the atrocities in Darfur, maybe this will finally raise an eye brow.

From The South China Morning Post:

Bar owners near the Workers’ Stadium in central Beijing say they have been forced by Public Security Bureau officials to sign pledges agreeing not to let black people enter their premises….

Security officials are targeting Sanlitun, which Olympic organizers expect to be a key destination for foreign tourists looking for a party during the Games.

The pledges that Sanlitun bar owners had been instructed to sign agreed to stop a variety of activities in their establishments, including dancing and serving customers with black skin, they said.

It looks like Jim Crow has finally made its way across the Pacific...
