discrimination at roxy night club in orlando

Heard about this over the weekend, about some Asian guys who were racially profiled, discriminated against, and eventually arrested when they tried to enter Roxy Night Club in Orlando. Their experience is detailed at length at this Facebook group: Boycott Roxy Night Club.

Basically, the bouncer and management wouldn't let these guys in, while other groups got in without a problem (the club has apparently had trouble with Asian gang members). They eventually got arrested and beat up by the police. It all sounds pretty messed up.

Here's a local news report on the incident: Roxy Night Club Orlando FL. Hopefully we'll have more updates on in this case as it develops... That's racist!
