What Nonsense!.. Bar In South Korea Bans Africans From Entering Over Ebola Spread

I really don't know if I should say this is stupidity, ignorance or racism?. This notice was at JR Pub in Itaewon, South Korea. According to the person who put up this photo on her Facebook, she said the one of her friend who is white pretended she was from South Africa just to know their reaction but they allowed her get inside....So as long as you have a dark skin, you cannot enter..
 This is what she wrote:
Korea has very spotty human rights issues so it's hard to say. I've just emailed the NHRC of Korea and spoke with the management of JR's who seems to think it is acceptable...upon allowing my white friend into the bar after saying she was South African and refusing black patrons.

Rascim can never be erased no matter how we try. The sooner we get to accept that our skin color will always be means of seperating us from the white, the better for us. The owner only displayed his ignorance using Ebola, what about those people who do their own sliently?
