Icandy Nightclub's Statement Regrading Racially Unacceptable Comments By The Owner
By: Icandy Nightclub
Unfortunately, recent regrettable and unacceptable comments were uncovered. A Principal of ICandy, Darryl DePiano, used racial epithets during a conversation approximately three years ago. These comments are appalling and in no way reflect the feelings of the staff of Icandy which is made up of a diverse group of men and women of many different ethnicities.
Mr. DePiano immediately took full responsibility for his actions and realizes that taking responsibility is just the beginning. Granting an apology is a great start but, is far from reversing a mindset that is crippling our society and community. Education in racial discrimination along with racial sensitivity training will start the healing process.
We ask for the opportunity to help us work together, and be a part of solving the problem of racial discrimination in the LGBT community. We have all, in some way, suffered discrimination in our lives, and it is NEVER ok to discriminate against any person, for any reason. We look forward to working with the community in addressing racial discrimination and creating equality for all.
