    There have been some ramblings around blogland that the new and improved Webster Hall has become racist! There is even a facebook group trying to boycott the place.

    "Webster Hall is Racist. but worst of all were the Black bouncers explaining why and defending such blatant racism. We also overheard one of the white men at the entrance say "They're too dark..." Several Black & hispanic clubgoers left upset, and completely aware of the racial discrimination being exhibited by this establishment."

    So...can it be that true? (The group does have 159 members). We went to the king of nightlife photography, Nicky Digital to do some research.  And, well the proof is in the pudding as they say.  In order to showcase how UN-racist the night club is, we are forced to pick out some of the several minority examples on his site from Webster Hall parties last week:

    I also want to point out that these "minority" photos represent at least half IF NOT MORE of the photos posted by Nicky Digital from Webster Hall so it's hardly unfair sampling.  Don't believe me?  Take a look for yourself.  Oh, and Nicky Digital is white.
