Blacks Banned from Beijing Bars During Olympics?

According to The Huffingpost, The South China Morning Post, Hong Kong’s English paper, reported that the Chinese authorities have a secret ban on blacks, Mongolians, and other “social undesirables” from Beijing’s bars during the Olympics.  A blog called Beijing Boyce re-posted the article:

Beijing authorities are secretly planning to ban black people and others it considers social undesirables from entering the city’s bars during the Olympic Games, a move that would contradict the official slogan, “One World, One Dream”.

Bar owners near the Workers’ Stadium in central Beijing say they have been forced by Public Security Bureau officials to sign pledges agreeing not to let black people enter their premises….

Security officials are targeting Sanlitun, which Olympic organisers expect to be a key destination for foreign tourists looking for a party during the Games.

The pledges that Sanlitun bar owners had been instructed to sign agreed to stop a variety of activities in their establishments, including dancing and serving customers with black skin, they said. Source

“One World, One Dream”, eh? Very interesting.

  1. Being an African American living in America and bound for the Beijing games in a few days and the founder of http://www.olympiconenessdream.com a social site for international Olympic attendees, I have a keen interest in this story.
    Join with me and take a stand with the Chinese motto for the Olympic Games in Beijing “One World One Dream”.
    How do you say “I have a Dream” in Chinese?
