trendy club only wants "white girls"

Two women fired from a trendy Manhattan nightclub have filed a lawsuit against their former employer claiming the owner wanted only "white girls": Lawsuit vs. Manhattan nightclub over firing of minorities. More here: Suit: Chelsea club fired minorities.

The lawsuit, filed by four minority employees last week in federal court, alleges that they were dismissed from their jobs at 10AK because their skin color. According to waitress Cecilia Shim, a manager at the club told her that the owner wanted "white girls he could f---" serving drinks.

The recently opened 10AK appears to be one of those swank hot spots that attracts a lot of celebrity clientele. Which apparently means that Asian people aren't worthy enough to serve some frickin' drinks. That's racist!
