Kandy Bar

A Charlotte area nightclub that came under fire for allegedly discriminating against black people was destroyed by rioters Wednesday night.

News footage shows protesters breaking into the Kandy Bar, smashing out windows and throwing furniture around the club.

The riots started as a peaceful protest to the fatal police shooting of an armed black man on Tuesday in Charlotte, NC.

The Kandy Bar, a private all-white nightclub located in the upscale EpiCentre, has a members only policy. But critics argue that the club admits white people without a membership.

After the story broke this week, the club's management strenuously denied discriminating against black people.

"We take these allegations very seriously,” management said in an email sent to Qcitymetro.

“As a member of the Charlotte community, we have zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment.”

In an interview with Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson defended the looters by saying banks are the biggest looters in America.

UPDATE: The man wounded by gunfire during Charlotte's riots last night has died. Apparently his life doesn't matter since he wasn't shot by a cop.

    Be like that. They had several reasons why they denied entry. All were untrue.

    For those of you who can’t understand why some of us won’t give donald trump a chance, here you go:
    "The people who will suffer the most as a result of these riots are law-abiding African-American residents who live in these communities where the crime is so rampant," Trump declared at an energy conference in Pittsburgh. He added, "Drugs are a very, very big factor in what you're watching on television at night”
    He doesn’t even respect US enough to acknowledge that there is a serious racial problem in this country. SMDH

    i don't think we were missing out on anything... it may be located in an "upscale" area, but from this glimpse of the clientele it looks more like an all-white TRASH nightclub https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • puppylove

    There is no such thing as white privilege.

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    The club is private when they want it to be. They unofficially discriminate when they want to.

    I am not surprised at Kandy Bar. There was a club here in Raleigh that the guy got discriminated against few years back. Your ass is not white or e-white. Go party with your own kine you damn oreo. Anywho...there is also a country club here that didnt allow black at all to join until 3-4 years ago. Then the damn decesdant of the namesake of my middle school AND the family that founded and owned the newspaper (glad they asses aint own it when I worked there. SHEWWWW) gonna LIE and say no blacks wanted to be included. You a lie Frank Daniels. Shutcho ass UP. Carolina Country Club. So I aint shocked by none of this in the least. Matter of fact I gotta pass BY Carolina Country Club in a few minutes bc Dub11 has practice that way. I oughta go piss on their front lawn but it faces a major street. I dont feel like jail today. Hell bf almost went around this same time yesterday.

  • Smartypants

    Welp! I don't feel bad for this establishment.

    However I am looking forward to the sociology and psychology articles that are to come out regarding looting. It's so interesting to me. Like, in Milwaukee they were looting places like a liquor store and beauty supply. Like what's the rhyme or reason behind that?

    They looted a racist gas station which is understandable, but the liquor store?

    Anywho, carry on.

    Really over the top and false. That wasn't even the club in the picture on the left. Stating is an all private all white nightclub is ignorant bc the club is very diverse and there are plenty videos and pics to show that each and every night from the day they were open they don't discriminate based on the color of anyone's skin. Educate yourself and find out the facts before you post inaccurate untrue statements.

    I agree with this. I think the issue at hand is that in this day and age separatism should not still exist. Unfortunately it always will. The civil rights movement told most of us that we must be accepted and assimilate so many of us continue to try. Let's face it, we work for and with others. We pay bills and rent to others. Thus we believe we are and should be welcomed by others. Most of the time to have our own establishment it is on the property of others. We must own in order to have.

    I wonder if there was no book in his hands in the videos from the body cam on the officers and the independent video, and he did reach for his gun is it justified? I also wonder if his daughter who was cursing and saying he was shot holding a book not a gun knew that he in carried gun ? Could she he charged with inciting a riot?

    Could be but if he was getting out and they asked him to drop it then legal or not the cop could have justifiably shot him, I wished that they could shoot in a way that would disarm not KILL though.... I have to think the black officer who shot him is reeling right now. Must be gut wrenching to take a life and all this happen. At least that would be me.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Oh I apologize to Aunt Sandy so there is a membership . What is Kandys Bar? A place to hang out? I'm just curious . I think any business in that area was going to be looted, broken into, trashed, destroyed, etc. I wished the protest stayed peaceful after the shooting and after all the facts came out.

  • quenelle

    It happened in North Carolina. Open carry is legal, C Carry requires a license. The victim never threatened the police, and nor was advised to put his weapon down.

  • John Kassano

    Again being ignorant! There was more damage done at the Time Warner Arena and Hyatt Hotel. People stealing merchandise. CVS was completely destroyed. Vault... a black club was vandalized and their windows broken. The place that was hurt the most was the Nascar Hall of Fame. Again just go by what the news says and you will be ok in life it seems like. Shaking my head! Goodluck to you!

  • quenelle

    Stop posting if all you are going to do is speculate. First off the guy that shot him was a white cop not a black cop - I've seen the video. The guy was shot after police yelled 'gun'! Which in police training means, pull your gun out and be aware - not pull your gun out and shoot. The culprit never pointed a gun at the police. Furthermore the guy shot in the head last night was shot by an exploding pellet shot from a cop, not a black civilian.

  • PhillyFacts

    Mary Mary quite contrary? you make this place seem sweet, a dessert bar huh lol. So let me get this straight you mean to tell me you've created a disqus account just to come on a black blog and tell us about your experience at the Kandy Bar huh. Your not too bright and considering I don't have a sweet tooth this evening, I'm not interested in the sweet Kandy bs your selling. Have a good night darling! Oh and take your pallid skin hyenas with you, ya'll been trolling this blog for the past two hours dying for a response. I guess the freaks really do "come out out night"..... ?

  • PhillyFacts

    Sandy need to delete them this ish is spam......

  • quenelle

    Btw, the guy shot last night was shot in the head by a police officer, not a black civilian. He was shot with an exploding pellet that. Also the cop that killed the guy was white not black. The black cop showed up later an administered cpr. How do I know - I've seen the video. Lastly when a criminal kills, they are doing what criminals do. When a cop illegally kills someone, they are running contrary to what is expected of them - to uphold the law. Please stop with the false equivalency.

  • John Kassano

    There is a private membership law in the state of NC for all nightclubs. No nightclub likes that they have to abide by it b/c if they don't they can be heavily fined and shut down and some people can take it the wrong way being denied entry b/c of not being a member. The video posted doesn't show anything to do with memberships. It's a dress code violation. Why doesn't someone put all their efforts together and try to figure out a way to get rid of the membership laws and if that happens then that is one less reason to say it was due to race. There will always be a dress code even for women. If you as a woman come in looking not looking good and have flip flops on more likely you are not getting in. Upscale nights clubs want to make sure people of all races coming in are well dressed, courteous, and expect to be at a place where they know it's safe. Plain and simple.

    FYI if you visit this blog often enough you'll see the owner/administrator is far from racist. I told you, you weren't that bright now I know your just down right remedial. I stated it was a black blog to inform you one a majority of us are not interested in this "white only" establishment; so you could've used your time more wisely cleaning your trailer, mowing the lawn, picking animal dander off your clothes. Anything would had made more sense than for you to creating a fictitious disqus account just to troll here. So John, Mary, Vanilla Ice who ever you want to be at this moment carry on! I will not be entertaining you any longer....GN

    it's not a "white only" establishment, and if you had any brain at all, you would know that. As a matter of fact my best friend is a black male who goes with me every single weekend as well as a number of his black friends. :) That just shows how ignorant you truly are...like all the rest of you uptown right now destroying your own city. Enjoy your free welfare checks, paid housing, and claims of racism....and have an excellent night. Please do join them uptown so you can all kill each other. Then the world would be a much better place. xo

  • Anji

    I've experienced 2 riots in my city and numerous protests.

  • Anji

    I have never seen a controlled riot. Riots are an expression of uncontrollable rage. I was a child during the Watts riot. I only asked my parents why the "army men" (National Guard) were packing up what was identified cases of liquor in the jeeps. If you're referring to vandalism the Watts riots burned what they didn't own, sold them spoiled meat and produce and can be compared to '92 in that people weren't allowed to be vested in their own communities. I hope I don't live through another one, but if I do,,,,I'll understand why.

    UPDATE: The man wounded by gunfire during Charlotte’s riots last night has died. Apparently his life doesn’t matter since he wasn’t shot by a cop.

  • Li

    Yes correction. But what IF he was carrying a gun and it was legal? The cop said he saw a gun, but if it's a conceal carry state why would he not ask for his license?

  • Li

    A lot of these officers are sleep deprived and some of them are drunk. In Chicago, the union contract allows them to take a drink before coming to work.
    I've seen officers on duty who were wasted.

    The officer who shot him is black if we are taking North Carolina. I am not speculating I'm going by what every news outlet in America is reporting. None of us have been privy to the video like you have . Like millions of other black Americans I'm trying to make sense out of what's happening. Don't care if you don't like it or not . As I posted previously I'm saddened by unnecessary death of man died during the riots. I'm sad for the man that lost his l

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    What ??? My friend works for the Public Defenders office I will ask her about that!!! Did you hear abou the judge in Chicago who let her friend (who was running to be a judge) sit on the bench?!! Even let her try a couple of court cass!!!! The judge has been suspended it made national news too!!!

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I never have experienced it. I feel bad for those that won't get paid that are on minimum wage. There are a lot of consequences when things like this happen. I understand the anger and frustration behind it though.

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    Anybody whomever believed that was on some bs ?....at one point it just got controlled. But that will never die. And what's sad to see black ppl or anybody tearing down there own community to make a point...that's what makes protesting look stupid and violent and Unlogical. If anything target the police stations or whatever or nothing just take a stand and let peace be still. If that's what the aim is.

    Also here's truth the Goverment is behind EVERYTHING. Nobody finds it odd that once Obama became president we have seen many unjustified deaths upon black men of all the races in this country??

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    No!!! That's BS ignorance. If that's the case then target the banks police stations and goverment offices not your own damn ppl and community???Destroying your own city by stealing from ppl whom has done nothing to you but try to make a living like you is beyond backwards...so they should be targeted?? That's why what happened has happened to an ANOTHER innocent black man....seee, the whole point is to discriminate violence not use violence to bring peace. March stand but always come with peace. That's how one can be heard not through being destructive and angry. That's true strength and with that peaceful strength one can truly make a difference.

  • AnonyMous

    Our music? Who created the instruments? It is time for us blacks to realize that we have not contributed much in this country. If white folks don't want us in their clubs, we should open our own. And keep them open by stopping other violent blacks from shooting them up.

    Black people are violent stupid people. Stupidity and violence can be resolved. But the hypocrisy is maddening.

    You are such a liar. As a Charlottean, born and raised, the EpiCentre has had complaints about racism as almost every establishment in there since it's inception. The Kandy Bar incident was not isolated and more than likely this will happen again. Educate yourself and gather facts. A simple Google search would have shown you all of those instances, sir.

You sound like a 10 year old kid "You are such a liar". Grow up and find out the facts first before you accuse anyone of any wrong doing.

    Start some mess? Actually telling the truth. You don't want to hear that though. You have already made up your mind! Goodluck b/c with an attitude like that you will always be stepping backwards and not forward.

  • John Kassano

    His life does matter as should everyone else's but along with the peaceful protesters there were also not so peaceful protesters looting, throwing things, vandalizing and b/c of it people were hurt. It is sad to see people who are trying to do good be affected from people who are bad but until that stops happening things will never get better.

    They don't know who shot him.

    That's all you can say? LIES? Have you seen videos floating around on Facebook showing black people getting in all night? Have you seen the video floating around of a group of black women not getting in b/c they have flip flops on and looking sloppy? Also the guys with them with hats on and chains? Get the facts straight before you open your mouth! You know the owner of Kandy Bar had a club in Raleigh that was all black and was open for 5 years before they just shut it down b/c the patrons that lived in the building it was located in didn't want a black club in their building. The same people who enforce the memberships revoked their liquor license. Is that fair? Find out about things first before you make your ignorant comments.

  • Nikkiknows

    There were black people completely dressed appropriately for the club that they turned away. What's wrong with this post is they should have put in the FB post that initiated the eventual protest of the place. The place was racist, and used BS tactics to turn black people away, period.

    I went to 935 one night when they were open b/c I love hip hop and wanted to try something new. I drove b/c I wasn't drinking but 1 or 2 drinks. I got to the parking lot and security asked me if I really wanted to go in here? I said yea I am good. Then once I parked and walked up to the door... the security guards said I must have the wrong place. Do you know where you are? Are you sure you want to come in here? I said yea I do and yea I want to go in. They let me in. I had a good time. I was dressed in a suit too. I did get looks all night like I shouldn't be in there and what was I doing in there. I have been to a lot a of clubs in Charlotte, Kandy Bar, Suite, Bubble, Label etc. etc. and watch to see if anyone inside ever gives anyone the look that I got being in 935. No... never! These places are much more diverse than 935 but nobody in these places are looking at you in the club based on your skin color. Everyone is having a great time and just having fun. There is plenty of places to go in Charlotte. Some are more exclusive than others. I have got denied at clubs in NYC, Miami, LA, Vegas for not having girls with me or not dressed to what I felt was dressed well. I move on and go to another place. I don't yell discrimination.

  • Nikkiknows

    Well a man posted a video from the Protest in NC.. they were peaceful when several White vans with out of state plates pulled up and started causing Caos, wearing face bandannas they threw fire bombs , smashed windows of cars and businesses. Im sure they were Hired protesters to go and cause a RIOT. Like the Crisis actors did in Dallas, It shows several WHITE people smashing Windows and destroying property , I don't believe anything the Media says or show, Ill take witness accounts and Live Video..

    That's why it's called Crook County, not Cook County. Yes, and a lot of us think the judges are on the take -- at least some of them. Because we have repeat offenders in and out of the system.

    Dear John

    Whats your suggestion?

  • bella28498 .

    So basically what ur saying is black ppl should be quiet and suffer so everyone else can be comfy, um no it's it's bad for us it should be bad for everyone

  • John Kassano

    My suggestion is not violence or using hateful language toward another race regardless the color of your skin. People need to have the mindset that they can do better in this nation, either it be opening their own business, educating their kids. Each and every person is accountable for change and if there are more people that just preach hate and always point the finger then this nation won't ever be able to move forward as one.

  • John Kassano

    You like putting words in peoples mouths I see. Hard headed individuals like yourself only make this nation move backwards. My parents came over here to the U.S with no money, had to change their names to fit in so they weren't discriminated against. They worked hard and have their own businesses now. I have seen my father discriminated against, held at gun point and went to jail from a police officer that should have never been issued a badge. My father did nothing wrong. There are always going to be people out there that are bad but to solve things by hate isn't the answer. Also accusing people of racism without seeing all the facts is ignorant. The media has contributed to a lot of good but has also destroyed this country.

  • bella28498 .

    Like I said if it's bad for us it should be bad for everyone. Don't like it reverse the bad treatment for ppl of color

    Let me school u, I hate when u immigrants come over here talking about how u worked hard, ur still white jack a s s annnnnnd do u know that immigrants have special government set asides to make it in America where as black citizens do not. We are still owed reperations and instead of paying us they are locking us up and killing us. Funny every race of ppl commit crimes but the prisons are full of black ppl only ? Be quiet.

  • bella28498 .

    You need to watch this documentary on YouTube where a white man was changed into a black man by professional make up artist, he was just like ur white as s he didn't think black ppl have it hard. He agreed to go 1 week as a black man by day 2 he was crying and demanded to go back to being white he said he couldn't take it and it was the most horrible thing he ever experienced. Stfu

The looters don't own any stores that got trashed, white people do, the looters don't have to clean, fill out paperwork, deal with insurance companies (if they have insurance), lose weeks worth of pay due to remodeling, ect, not to mention if the business is not insured smh, looting definitely hurts the business owners more than the people,..i never understand when people say that.
