Nicaragua: Refusal of Entry to Club and Allegations of Racism
An Afro-Nicaraguan woman was denied entry at a nightclub in the capital city of Managua. The club states that she was not allowed to enter because of their right to refuse admission, but she alleges racism. Bloggers reflect on the case and about the presence of racism and discrimination in the country, but others think that it was an isolated incident and just part of the nightclub scene where bouncers decide who enters based on how one is dressed and other arbitrary reasons.
