Mark Ingram Was “Too Urban” To Get Into London Night Club 

The rebirth of blatant racism isnt limited to America and The New Trump Era.

The rebirth of blatant racism isnt limited to America and The New Trump Era.

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram and a group of friends — including teammates Sterling Moore, B.W. Webb, and Vonn Bell — were apparently turned away from a London club early Tuesday morning for looking too “urban.”

I dont know what the folks in the UK mean exactly, but it reminds me of the old saying that more than three black guys standing on a corner is a mob. Ingram was apparently traveling with some friends and was denied entrance into Cirque le Soir, which is known for hosting some of the biggest celebrities from all over the world.


Dressing too urban can also simply mean that there was a dress code requirement that these guys didnt meet. In any event, Ingram didnt seem to take it too personally and he received resounding Twitter support from people of all races and nationalities.
