Dark-skinned dancers are on strike in New York City over alleged racial discrimination by strip club owners.
According to reports, the dancers accuse club owners of practicing discrimination against dark-skinned dancers who want to work on big nights that are hosted by celebrities.
Usually the biggest nights for dancers are when celebrities are in the house making it rain -- a slang term for throwing money in the air and watching it float down.
The celebrities -- mostly athletes and rappers -- prefer light-skinned, long hair dancers.
Some club owners have begun banning dark-skinned women from the VIP when certain rappers or ball players are in the house.
DJ Kay Slay says the discrimination is a known problem among NYC strip clubs.
”What I do understand and acknowledge is that there is RACISM against black woman in most of these NY strip clubs! It has been going on for a while now it didn’t just start," he wrote in a post on Instagram.com.
"At some of my events when it’s celebrities in the VIP I have to grab the black women by their hands and pull them into VIP. My last event this security clown would not let a black dancer in VIP, I told him it’s my event let her up there, this fool told me no. I told him you getting paid tonight because of me let her up, he still shook his head, Now we was about to get on his skull, but I wasn’t about to f—k up my own event, so I had to get a manager to check his dumb ass, then I removed his stupid ass from his post!!”
Another Instagram user posted a video of newcomer rapper Cardi B speaking on the issues black women face during her VladTV interview.
The woman wrote, “She not lying I saw it with my own eyes. Promoters would straight up lie and say there was no space.. or see dark-skinned shortys in the dressing room and make them get dressed and leave because they was too black!!!"
Those NY dancers should take their talents to the Dirty South!
