The Game

Restaurant BOOTED Me Because I'm Black

The Game
claims he's just been kicked out of a famous L.A. restaurant because he's BLACK -- even referring to the manager as a "slave master" ... but the restaurant insists they were simply enforcing the dress code.

Sources close to Game tell TMZ, the rapper dropped by Hillstone's in Santa Monica -- formally known as Houston's -- wearing a white tank top ... when the manager refused to seat him.

According to sources, the manager told Game he was in violation of the dress code, which requires men to wear sleeves. But Game's pals tell TMZ ... there were two white males in the restaurant with sleeveless shirts ... and it wasn't a problem.

Game believes the 86'ing was racially motivated -- and took to Twitter moments ago -- telling his 644,000 followers, "Houston's just went from my favorite resturant to the "RACIST-URANT" !!!!"

The rapper added, "Hillstone's racist-urant formerly known as Houston's & their slave-master manager Valerie has just made #1 on the RACIST resturant list !"

A rep for the restaurant tells us ... Game only pointed to a lone sleeveless woman at the bar -- NOT two men -- and says the sleeve rule does not apply to females.

The rep says the restaurant would love to have The Game back ... when he's wearing the appropriate clothing.

Also, how the hell are they enforcing a dress code to "keep the blacks out"? If a place has a dress code, follow it. If you don't want to follow to the dress code, then eat somewhere else. Idiots..

I don't think race is relevant when you're an A-hole. Stop playing that card, you aren't doing your "race" any favors.

How come a black person can call a White person a slave master? But if a white person calls a black person a slave, they are racist. F the game. you suck anyway.

Ok let's break down THE FACTS listed in the story since HALF of these comments are from DUMBASS people who didn't read the FULL STORY...

The restaurant has a dress code...The Game didn't follow it..then yes he should have been kicked out..and if he had changed and came back then the restaurant should have let him in...If they didn't let him in then YES THEY WERE BEING RACIST TOWARDS HIM...if they did..THEN NO THE GAME WAS LYING...

But, you also have to look at what ELSE was said in this article...The Game and his friends ALSO said that there were TWO WHITE MEN WHO WERE WEARING SLEEVELESS SHIRTS and the restaurant let them IN...SO IF THE RESTAURANT LET THEM IN...IT WAS WRONG...not matter if it was a wife beater or a regular shirt with no sleeves. If the restaurant says NO Sleeves No Service than that RULE should be for EVERYONE!(including women too) Case Closed. You just make rules then bend them for CERTAIN people
