The Dr.Roqs National Night Life Review Welcome to Davenport, Iowa
Racism is still very much alive in Davenport, IA. One young man was asked to leave a club in downtown Davenport after a drunken patron assaulted him by putting her hands on his photographic equipment, without cause. After he asked her to remove her hands from the camera, she proceeded to continue to assault him by keeping her hand over the lens of the camera. When he pulled the camera from her grasp, her boyfriend decided to jump in and escalate the situation. After being told by a member of security to stay calm and move to the other side of the club, he was then approached, approximately 17 minutes after the initial incident, by two other members of security and told to leave. Their reason? Because he “assaulted that white woman and white man”.
