Les derniers jours de la disco

Bounce this, says a French court:

Five employees from four Paris discotheques were fined on Thursday for discrimination after they turned away clubgoers of African and Arab origin.

The bouncers were fined as a result of an operation mounted in 2005 by the anti-racism organisation SOS Racisme in which groups of young blacks, Arabs and whites, dressed in similar attire, were sent to clubs across France to try to uncover incidences of discrimination.

A Paris court ordered one of the bouncers to pay 1,000 euros (1,330 dollars) and the three others were given a suspended fine of 1,500 euros.
