Incident of Racially-Motivated Violence at Plan B
An incident of racially-motivated violence occurred at the Plan B gay bar early last month.
An anonymous contact has told YGB that after a hip hop show on December 1 at Plan B, a man of color was told to leave the bar. He says that he non-violently complied with the request but out of the blue, as he was waiting for his coat, was punched three or four times - not by other customers at the bar, but by the bouncers themselves, the majority of which were white. A man who was passing by later told him that he was thrown on the ground while unconscious and called a “f****** n*****.”
The source has told us that the incident has resulted in a concussion, whiplash, a hyperextended knee, anxiety, and trauma. While he says the promoter of the Plan B event has apologized, he’s been denied access to the security camera footage of the incident. YGB contacted Plan B and received no response.
It is vital that all establishments in Madison serve as a safe space for people of all colors. What can we do to turn our places into safe spaces?
