Mrs. Nicholson, who is black, claims in a lawsuit her former employers Ali and Hassan Davari, two brothers who own a string of clubs .H.D. HOUSTON, INC. d/b/a CENTERFOLDS HOUSTON, W.L. YORK, INC. d/b/a THE COVER GIRLS, SPLENDOR GENTLEMENS CLUB, SOLID PLATINUM CABARE, where Nicholson claims was denied work because 'there were already too many black girls'. Nicholson said 'I can put on makeup. I can comb my hair. I can look as pretty as you want to. I can act as sophisticated as you need me to, but I cannot scrub my skin off,' Nicholson told The Washington Post. 'I’m a Black girl and I can’t help that.' MORE INFO: Eric P.
