Racial Discrimination and Pregidous at the Gaslight Lounge

I hate this bar and wonder why such a corrupt dump is allowed to operate in our beautiful City. As a college student my girlfriend and I at the time went into the bar and the African America bouncer saw my fraternity letters and said “white college boy huh? You better watch your back here boy.” A year ago an extremely tall bouncer gave me aggressive glare as soon as I arrived. Later that night he walked up behind me and tapped my back. I figure someone bumped me by accident being that the walk ways are a tight fire hazard and I did not respond right away. He then grabbed my shoulder and said I had to leave because I was standing in his way. (I believe he did this because I’m another tall man who was just a little shorter then he and I were not intimidated by his height.)The last incident I had was this year. I told the bartender she had overcharged me and I told the bouncer behind her watching the incident that I wanted to file a complaint he then attacked me and kicked me out the door. Once outside I spoke with another “Security Guard” requesting to review the security tape then he advised me that nothing had happened and he stated “we don’t use surveillance tapes here so you’re indecent never happened.” I hope that Anchorage one day realizes how backwards it is by allowing this establishment to exist in our beautiful diverse population and what it is doing to the city’s good people by allowing this orgainizatiob to be higher then the law. When is enough really enough?

Racial discrimination at the Gaslight!

4th of July a small group of Polynesians were denied entry into the Gaslight. A friend, with a Hawaii driver's license was stopped by the doorman and security who said, "...its not their (Gaslight management) policy...BECAUSE there was an altercation the night before with a bunch of guys that look like you guys (Polynesians)...so we can't allow you guys in..." A waitress or hostess also said, "...yeah, that's how it is...they don't allow Samoans, Hawaiians, and Polynesians in this place..." The doorman/security/management allowed the Caucasian, Asian, and African American in BUT NOT THE POLYNESIAN. WARNING TO ALL BROWN-SKINNED POLYNESIANS...GASLIGHT ACTIVELY PRACTICES RACIAL DISCRIMINATION in the 21st Century!!
