As we approach the 2012 Presidential election a local bar in Marietta,GA is proving racism is still alive and in full force.
Mulligan’s Food and Spirits is once again facing protest and possible lawsuits do to a sign stating” Heard the White House smells like Collard Greens and Fried Chicken”
This is the second time the Mulligan’s family business has faced racist backlash. During President Obama’s first campaign the then owner of Mulligan’s Mike Norman sold shirts of President Obama as the monkey Curious George. Norman died in 2011 and left the business to his daughters Kelly and Brandi who are currently the owners.
This is a sad thing but nothing new in the state of Georgia. People assume since Atlanta is in Georgia it must be a black state. Once you leave the Atlanta metro area Georgia becomes a very RED (republican) and very racist state. One would think in today’s day and age we would be moving forward as humans and as a country but examples like this prove we still have huge strides to make.
What do you think of Mulligan’s posting the sign? Would you spend your money at Mulligan’s?
