BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County business owner woke up to an unwanted sight this morning. Someone vandalized her bar with racial slurs.

The owner of Remedy’s Lounge off NC 130 in Shallotte says she had a problem with a customer three weeks ago. The customer was unhappy with the bar’s racially mixed crowd and confronted her about it. That’s who she thinks vandalized the building.

Along with the profanity, several windows were broken and wires in the back of the building were cut.

The owner, who did not want to go on camera, says she has been open for about four months and many people in the area are unhappy with the crowd that hangs out at remedy’s. But she says she is not going to discriminate against the clientele.

A customer says this is a sad day for Brunswick County.

“We are all supposed to be a community,” Tony Cicero said. “Let’s all live together. Let’s all work together. Let’s work things out together. Let’s not this one’s that, that one’s that. This is ridiculous. There is no room in this day and age for stuff like that.”

The owner estimates thousands of dollars in damage to the business.

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office says it is investigating.

The owner says she is not going to let anyone intimidate her. Remedy’s will be open tonight.

I dont not go there but I can say one thing, your the lowest form of life to even say something like that. Maybe you or your family was the one to do it???

you are so wrong for even thinking the owner would do this i know for a fact she didnt because i was with her at this time.this is a stupid comment you made we already have plenty of bussiness . we didnt need this at all. the white people that did this should be ashamed of theirselfs and you should be ashamed of yourself for saying that.. stupid people in this world.

I bet you anything that libster owner of that bar was the one that put them “racial slurs” and broke them few windows herself, she knew that insurance would cover it and she could get free advertising on the news and everyone think’s she’s so heroic for being a booze-peddler and standing up to them “rasists” and they would come spend alot of money there, typical liberal greed at it’s finest, ha!

You are what we call a waist of skin. Im 29, white and a female. I date white men but let me tell you something. Ive been there once to pick someone up and it was a great place… Ive also gone to redneck winnabow for the mudd crap and had issues with rednecks screaming dirty things at me… ASome of the people here would be better off to move to an all white town and leave us real people alone.

It’s just as ignorant to make the redneck comments as it is to make the racial slurs. For someone who has lived here all of her life, you sure don’t know the meaning of what a redneck truly is. You have relied on the likes of Jeff Foxworthy to form your opinions instead of educating yourself. And you are truly naive if you think that we have anything to learn from the people from the north. You don’t have to look far to find out how racist they are up there. NYC alone has stop and frisk laws that target black people. So, exactly what is it that they have to teach us?

I have lived in brunswick county all my life and I am 30 years old. Racism.. really… wow.. people are soo ignorant. Why are so many people still set in there ways .. and think whites only have rights!! White.. black.. we are the same. People talk about how black people act.. really well I am telling you there are plenty of white people that should be ashamed of how they act.Some people just put disgrace on the south. Maybe the northern people moving here will teach some of these rednecks a lesson. Cause this is 2013 people. Who cares if your black or white. We should be worried about way more important things. And to whoever put all those slurs up on that business.. You look so stupid and foolish. Hey guess what I love black people .. now go make a racial slur.. cause that’s what ignorant people do that have no time on their hands but to try n put others down:)

Talk about backwards. No wonder the South (not everyone) is so far behind the North…mentally and socially. I love Wilmington, but am surprised at how many ignorant red necks are down here. Can’t wait to spend some of my hard earned money in this establishment…

So it’s purely a Southern phenomenon for racial slurs to be painted by vandals? Oh wait, it’s not. Here’s the results of one quick Google search:

“Police Investigating Racial Slurs Painted On Jackie Robinson Statue As Hate Crime”

“Police: Racial Slurs Spray-Painted On Mastic Beach Fence, Boat”

To paraphrase you:
Talk about backwards. No wonder the South North (not everyone) is so far behind the North South…mentally and socially. I love Wilmington New York, but am surprised at how many ignorant red necks Guidos are down here up there.

See how mentally vapid one seems when spouting empty rhetoric?

Your opening sentence puts you in the same category as those that painted the bar. If you think the north is that much better please go back there :)

The replies to your post say it all. I’m truly sorry for those southerners who get looked down upon as “rednecks” because of people like those who replied, people that are no better than the vandals that defaced this property. The wish (of the racist morons)is they could say the same to each and every person who ISN’T white and doesn’t have a birth certificate that says they were born south of the Mason/Dixon: “go back there”.
Hey “redneck”, if you can’t tolerate humanity, why don’t YOU go back to where your ancestors came from? See, no different than the most of us here in the good ole US of A….YOUR ANCESTORS AREN’T FROM HERE!
Don’t like the fact the south is behind? Then catch up to the rest of the country and rid your tiny brains of the antiquated thought process that doesn’t allow you to catch up.
Tired of being called “dumb rednecks”? Easy way out of that: don’t act like one.
Remedy’s: here’s to your success.

The neighbors do not like the late-night noise emanating from the bar.

I suspect the bar owner anticipates complaints demanding the bar control the noise or close down.

Have you ever lived near a noisy bar? If you have, you know what a nightmare a bar in your neighborhood can be.

It’s very unfortunate racial epithets were spray painted on the side of the business, and racial bigotry cannot be tolerated.

But who spray painted the words? We do not know. It could have been anyone, and they could have done it for ulterior motives.

Are we back in 1920s KKK Mississippi? This is shameful and disgraceful. Every citizen should stand up against this craven, cowardly, midnight nonsense. Just watch the racists run when we do.

You go, Remedy’s. I’ll be a customer first chance I get. We are 100 years better than this.

Back in 1920’s KKK era?

Is that why you used a fake name to post under and not your real one?

Have some conviction. Have some moxy.

So sad that racism still exists. However no White person will not make me feel bad because I’m Black. If White people don’t like going into public places with other races, do us a favor and stay home.

Ms. Emmino.

I applaud you in your decision to have your business open to all but be care ful it does not get away from you. If your establishment turns into a hip hop club you will eventually have problems that the BCSD and ALE will not tolerate. I have seen many clubs go down this same path and the end results are not favorable to the business.

I’m going to Remedy’s this coming weekend! The owners are strong individuals because notice the club has reopened whereas the mentally challenged redneck racists are hiding. Then again BCSO probably were the ones who put those racial slurs on the wall.

My ancestors are from here. By your standards I can say, if you don’t like it here then leave. The people who did this weren’t identified. They could be from the North.

We are better than the vandals that did this. We are defending ourselves from the stereotypes placed upon us. It’s the same process of a black person defending themselves against a racial slur. If you don’t put us down for who we are, then we want get upset and tell you where to go.

From my experience with northerners, I would take a honest-to-good redneck (in the traditional, true meaning of the word) over any kind of yankee.
