Meek Mill’s plans to sue Las Vegas hotel over “racist as hell” treatment shines light on a national nightclub “no-fly list”

By  | 

The rapper accused the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas of racism after it barred him from entering this past weekend.

Meek Mill Tweeted:

“If you come from our culture you should never step foot in the cosmopolitan hotel they just really racist as hell …. something really has to be done in Las Vegas what they doing to black people!”

and,

“They telling black rappers they are banned from properties they own without incident … they just told me I was trespassing and I will be arrested I stepped in that hotel once at a jayz party without incident!”

For their part, the hotel said it was “related to a matter of security, not race.”

It may point to a larger issue that many, if not most of us are unaware.

Check inside the stack for a special look at PatronScan, a system that scans patron IDs at the door. When incidents occur, it provides staffers the options to tag your id with details of what happened in a database that may leave you banned from bars and other nightlife options.

With this new system, one bad night out could have consequences that span over a decade.
