Wild-Wing-Cafe.jpgA North Charleston, SC restaurant Wild Wing Cafe reportedly refused to seat a group of black patrons because white customers complained of feeling "threatened." Apparently, the restaurant apologized and offered free meals to the group, some of them frequent customers. One such man, Michael Brown, posted about the incident on Facebook and says: "This is not a situation where you can just give us a free meal and everything is OK." [WCSC]
