1. I have a feeling that different elevator banks are color coded

 

to get you to particular parts of the venue. I don't think that sign had anything to do with race.

4. They didn't think through their color coding scheme.

With all the colors of the rainbow available to them, they had to go for white? I suppose they thought too many colors would make them look "gay" or something--can't have the seating chart look like the Pride flag now, could they?


Unless we find a sign that says "BLACK ELEVATORS"-- pointing to a stairway, of course, because that's how racists roll -- we'll be best off assuming that annotating a section, and not discriminating against people of color, was the goal.

The real story is how they didn't SEE it ahead of time. Clueless, clueless people.
