Students from Washington University say they have complained to state and federal agencies that a Chicago, Illinois, nightclub barred six African-American members from their senior class trip celebration while admitting nearly 200 white classmates.
Bar personnel cited dress code violations — specifically baggy jeans — when barring the African-American students, according to Washington University senior class president Fernando Cutz, who was among students admitted to the bar.
A white student and a black student exchanged jeans to see what would happen, and the white student was admitted while his classmate still was kept outside, Cutz said.
