"Several white club and bar owners declined to talk with us for this story, but a few were refreshingly candid. Gropper of Hoops & Dreams says he's tried to build a diverse clientele but believes many business owners aren't color blind — and neither are their customers. He describes one fear this way: 'If a business owner has too many black people in the establishment, a lot of white people will walk out.'"

From Karen Shugart's Feb. 1, 2006, story "Party Politics," discussing the racial divide in Uptown clubs.
