Protesters will gather outside a Washington Avenue nightclub this afternoon to denounce racism.

Two players for the Houston Dynamo were arrested outside The Roosevelt last weekend after a fight with a police officer.

Members of the hip-hop group Drank and their entourage were also involved in the fight.

Culturemap talked to a witness who said the group was not allowed to enter the club because there were too many black people in the group.

The club owner says the group was too casually dressed.

Community activist Quanell X has organized a protest at 4pm outside The Roosevelt.
