VIDEO: Strippers in Portland protest against racism in their business "No Justice No Booty!"
Now even strippers join the movement to support black minority. In Portland, the adult entertainment workers took to the streets to demand “equitable scheduling” for the strippers of color. They demand strip clubs provide cultural sensitivity & diversity training for staff.
The strippers’ protest took place on Wednesday and one of their rallying cries were “No justice, no booty!”
The event gathered about 100 people.
Cat Hollis, the lead coordinator with the Haymarket Pole Collective, which works to implement anti-discrimination policies in the adult industry, delivered letters of demand to both clubs.
“We are not asking dancers to stop working, we’re asking that the clubs sign on and that the rest of the community show their support for this,” Hollis said. “We’re not asking for a boycott, we’re asking you to ask your local businesses what their anti-discrimination policy is and what they’re doing to make things better.”
Well, the black strippers need to earn money too, even if the way of doing it is a bit controversial and not acceptable for everyone. The more you work, the more money you get and the dancers of color got to the point where they realized they can claim for their rights to have their shift in the hours when the people want more fun.
Nothing personal, just business.
