    I don’t have a problem with the dress code other than the athletic shorts and sweatsuits and prove that it’s racial profiling. Is it because only blacks wear their pants down so you can see their underwear? Anybody want to see people’s underwear while eating out?

    I see lot’s of young people with pants down so the undewear shows that aren’t black.

    Then why is it only non-whites who are allegedly treated differently by Cordish?

    This isn’t something new, so concern trolling will get you nowhere.
