    Rowdy crowds before Sean "Diddy'' Combs show force Harrah's to close all bars, shut down The Pool, cancel concerts - pressofAtlanticCity.com

    Gee. I wonder if Diddy's insurance carrier will pick up the loss of revenue in the entire casino. :confused:

    This kind of shit causes more racial problems than all the n-words and cracka comments combined. Perhaps the NAACP could help here. Oh wait, they are busy investigating an internet photo. My bad.

    What does race have to do with this?

    Go to any concert where the headlining band doesn't show up. People get pissed.

    Really? That's the first time I've read this happen in A.C. And it wasn't that the band didn't show up to the concert. They were "rumored" to be hanging out at the Pool.

    C'mon Art. Do you think a bunch of "crackas" go to a rap concert? Whether or not you or I think it's a race issue, is irrelevant. The people spending money at the casino saw 500 mostly black people trying to crash through a door to a very posh bar, and force the evacuation of innocent people spending a ton of money on a vacation.

    Frankly, I don't think they'll be invited back. Just a hunch.

    What does it matter if it was mostly black people? Were the white ppl that were participating motivated by race too? Clearly you have never been to a hip hop show or a nightclub where celebrities are supposed to appear because plenty of white ppl show up to see their favorite hip hop artist. EVERYONE gets pissed when the headliners don't show up ... be it at an appearance, a hip hop show, or a metal concert.

    Oh, and they were scheduled to appear.

    Normally it is on the venue to provide proper security. If Diddy's concert was canceled he'd be within his rights to sue the casino.

    You're right however the "concert" was the next day. He was scheduled to appear at the Pool which I assume was just a meet and greet. It is a bar; not an arena.

    Let's just say the fans did not behave appropriately, and will most likely not be invited back. Since the "40/40 Club" was opened next to Caesar's there have been numerous violent episodes. Good for you if you think it's not racial. But many, many people don't think like you.

    Yeah, I know that there are many people who just assume ******* are always looking for a reason to riot.

    Right, because only black people mob stars.

    Chanel, I'm surprised at you. Rap is the music of angry young people of every race...I dunno why you posted this Op. So angry young people got angry and acted out? Big surprise there.

    I've read other posts you've written and you seem so together and compassionate....what happened
