Tamar Braxton Says JR’s Bar & Grill Denied Her Entry because she looked “too gangster”

Singer and reality TV star Tamar Braxton is alleging that JR’s Bar and Grill on Cedar Springs denied her entry based on her appearance.

Braxton took to her Instagram and social media accounts to detail her account of trying to enter the bar, which was promptly posted to Facebook by a user named James Michael. “Evidently I look like a gangster,” she says in the short clip. “I can’t come in this establishment. (JR’s Bar & Grill) Here in my favorite town Dallas, they said zero tolerance for black people.”

Thanks to the viral power of social media, the bar has been flooded with dozens of negative reviews on Facebook, some of which point to previous allegations of racism in prior reviews of the bar. “Looking at the reviews posted before this happened I can see there has always been a problem here,” wrote one commenter. “You made a mistake and turned away a famous person so now you will feel the hit in the profits.” Continue reading “Tamar Braxton Says JR’s Bar & Grill Denied Her Entry because she looked “too gangster””

Where You’d End Up If You Dug Straight Through to Opposite Side of the Earth of Dallas!

The Antipodes Map is a really fun, interactive map that finds antipodes or locations that are diametrically opposed from one another. The user can plot any location on the right side of the map, which features an illustration of a man digging through until his head pops out the left side at the antipode. Most locations will find the man swimming alone in one of the many oceans, but there’s a helpful list showing which cities have exact antipodes and those that almost have antipodes. Judging from the map we will be swimming with the sharks on the opposite side of Dallas! Better hope we don’t fall in.

This map helps you find the antipodes (the other side of the world) of any place on Earth. The Left Map presents the place for which you want to find the antipodal point. The Right Map shows the antipodal point for the selected location on the left map.Drag the left map, by clicking and holding as you move it, and when you will find the desired location, just click on it, and our “man” will dig a tunnel from selected location, right through the center of the Earth, up to the other side of the world which will be represented on Right Map.
