UK NEWS: TIGER TIGER FIRES DJ FOR ‘ATTRACTING TOO MANY BLACK PEOPLE’

A DJ has claimed on Twitter that the general manager at popular establishment Tiger Tiger (Croydon) fired him because he attracted too many black people in to his room.

DJ RSI tweeted.

Oh dear… Oh dear…..

All I can do is laugh and shake my head.  Another wake up call folks and we are still only in the early part of 2012.

If this is true then I guess I now know where I stand with Tiger Tiger. I won’t be visiting that establishment anytime soon!

  1. This is what happened back in the day which is why black communities starting holding their own parties known as ‘shoobs’ or ‘shoobines’ Tiger Tiger though….lol… don’t think I’ve ever stepped foot in one of those..good luck to them and their racist establishment(!) and good on the DJ for exposing…

  2. Hmm I have heard in a past that this establishment was racist, yet most of White people I know ( a few lol!) said they like the place because is culturally diverse?!

    And I am not surprised by what the manager said, it seems to me that a lot establishments in UK ( or Europe that matter, the same shit happens in France) like not having too many black/brown skinned people to fear it will damage the reputation of the club.

    I am still surprised that people are surprised by this type of behavior, racism is not going anywhere soon and will get worse.

  3. I DJ’d at the venue a few times, and I can categorically tell you that the general manager there has a problem with black people being in the club. He always tried to make me play ‘R’n’B’ of which he meant Lady Gaga, Pitbull, David Guetta, etc… All most probably in a bid to rid the club of black people who went there for the good music. Although, this happens in clubs up and down the country (I have witnessed it many times) and nothing gets done about it!

  4. Maybe we need start our own club called ‘LION LION’ play what we want and let in fi we people and let them step pon a Lion tail and see what happen.Dem dont like us and we dont need dem but yet we know how to enjoy ourselves .Bless to all.

  5. More warning shots for the so called Negro to take heed to, but most will still continue to bred up to and want to be like whitey instead of embracing your true heritage and bloodline.

  6. I think some people are small minded on this site.
    With certain types of music its not what colour person it attracts, its what kind of trouble it attracts and causes. Hard RnB and bashment creates the wrong vibe and leads to trouble, no matter what colour of skin of the person has.
    Most croydon people are shallow and follow eachother like sheep!

  7. lol Janice… This is a mess… wow! so much racism makes my stomach turn. If it were me i would picket that club until it closed down. You don’t want us there…ok we will be there outside the club bringing you negative attention… And hope that the media gets a hold of it. Oh but i forget the media don’t like Negros either……. SMH!!!

  8. Lol good one Janice! This is some BS …shameful! Such racism…wow…. This is just deep to me. I guess more so because no one is doing anything about it…. You have to make them responsible for their actions. If everyone just sits back and not do anything….it will never change.. SMH…. Could no have been me…..

    How can you call people small minded then say a musical genre leads to trouble? Surely it would be the people the club attracts that cause the trouble not the actual music. I’m sure there are thousands of people all over the world who listen to hard rnb (whatever that is) and bashment without fighting someone.

    Then you generalise a group of people by where they live? Fool.

    I know this is likely to cause a firestorm of hate my way, but I’m going to say it anyway.

    Regardless of how his approach was wrong, there is at least a kernel of truth in there.

    Usually stereotypes exist because they are in some way true and there is a clear link that the style of music that is classified as ‘black’ music (as opposed to all the amazing genres that come from black roots, but has been around long enough to lose the ‘black’ label) and social disorder.

    Admitting there is a link doesn’t make you racist. It doesn’t mean you hate black people. What it DOES mean is that the styles of music most commonly associated with the onset of violence are those styles, and I think when you take your anti-racism hat off for a moment, you see it too. It’s a sad fact, but if you look at modern pop culture (and I can’t emphasise this strongly enough – this doesn’t mean all things that relate to black people, or indeed the mental state of any specific social grouping whatsoever) ‘black’ pop culture is routinely homophobic, racist, misogynistic, sexist and violent and all kinds of -ists that relate to social disorder, yet still it is by far the most glamourised and portrayed as the most desirable and in turn, is by far the most popular.

    Whilst this doesn’t mean that it makes all who listen moronic sociopaths, but what it does do is more commonly attract moronic sociopaths of all races and colours.

    So no, the manager was clearly wrong and racist to summarise things as he did, however don’t be as racist as he was. Examine the facts objectively. What’s more likely – the manager of a major entertainment venue in London deciding all black people are bad, or that underneath his ill-formed comments is a track record that as certain styles of music are played, there is a evidence of measurable increase unpleasant and/or violent and/or unlawful incidents that we have as a society labelled as ‘black’ music?

    Do you not think that if it brought in this bohemian, party loving, friendly crowd he wouldn’t be supporting it?

    And to the comments that say it’s the venue – how can you not see the music is part of that? Yes. It IS the venue inasmuch as it’s a large, glossy venue based in the middle of tourist and party central, which of course means a much higher likelihood that that kind of ‘punter’ will be in the area. So the precaution a venue has to take, given it can’t move, shrink or have a refurb every night, is to control the music policy to provide one that provides the balance between one of popularity and one that increases undesirable incidents. The fact remains that in his situation, if you take the racism out of it and simply look at the business economics, he has a point. You play harder urban styles (I don’t care for genre labels, you all know exactly what music we’re talking about!) in and around Leicester Square on a Friday or Saturday night and you will end up with more problems, whereas with a more commercial setlist you get the same gross revenue without the damages.

    Underneath it all, it’s just business. Badly worded, but business all the same.

    Yes, the problems go deeper, yes, they do also have a strong link to the socio-economic divide which would tend to see more black people from poorer background, but this guy’s not trying to cure Britain’s socio-economic problems, he’s just trying to make sure his place doesn’t end up destroyed, shut down or driven into the ground and if that means that the guy paying you to do a job (and yes, DJs, you may forget sometimes, but it IS a job!) has put some restrictions in place, regardless of why, it’s your job to follow them.

    I won’t say ‘I’m not a racist’ because that’s not for me to decide, however, like the typical misnomer of the feminism movement, I think we tend as a society to confuse equality and objectivity with over-compensation. For many feminists it became much more about anti-male sexism than it did pro-female equality, and regularly in debates online that I read such as these many supposed supporters of anti-racism movements are actually pro-black and anti-white, which is just as racist, isolationist, outmoded and when you really think about it, as ridiculous and unfounded as any other negative behaviour based on arbitrary social groupings (including country, religion and all other fun inventions of human beings).

    Finally, just ask yourself, if he’d complained that commercial house brings in too many chavvy white boys, would you *honestly* be as outraged?

  11. Guessing the DJ has some written proof of this right? Pretty harsh allegation to make that could result in at the least a Slander case.

  12. Pretty sure you normally see white people fighting each other outside the club. Black people always get the bad rep.

  13. I used to go croydon a lot and Im telling you its hard for blacks to get in to clubs there these days espcially Tiger Tiger!!!!!! you just have to settle for Yates and you will be lucky if you get in there nowadays, doesnt matter how ur dressed, you can have ID and there like “no” they wont even give you a reason.
    Last time went Tiger Tiger, had a bouncer watchin over us thinkin we was gonna start somthin and we was in VIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! disgusting!
    Stopped ravin in Croydon and especially Croydon there a long time ago
