Cavaliers In Racial Incident

Members of the UVA and Oklahoma football teams left Doll House, a topless club in Jacksonville, Florida, after a dancer allegedly refused to dance at their table because they are black. In another incident in Florida, Tony Covington, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers football player and former UVA player, left a restaurant after being asked to leave, and this incident also was racially motivated. This article also discusses other racial issues in Florida, as well as the "inflammatory remarks concerning race" made by Jacksonville's Chief Judge John E. Santora Jr.
