  • There was an extremely rude patron today at the museum that threw change at one of the security guards there, and the extremely rude guest even had the nerve to throw racial slurs at the poor security guard due to his skin tone (he was the only dark security guard on duty at the time). Yet, despite all of this, management decided to let him in anyway instead of kicking him to the curb. Best believe if this obnoxious person was ANYTHING BUT WHITE, he would've been thrown out immediately. Completely unacceptable.
