ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2012,
A black civil rights activist today says that a Georgia bar
displaying a sign he says is offensive to him and President Barack
Obama has been removed, just days before a planned
Gerald Rose, founder of the New
Order National Human Rights Organization, told ReddingNewsReview.com
that he is still planning to hold a sit-in at Mulligan's Food and
Spirits in Marietta, although the establishment has removed a sign
disparaging the president.
The bar posted a sign that read, "I heard the
White House smelled like collard greens and fried chicken."
Still, Rose said he was going ahead with the planned protest.
"I don't trust them," Rose told ReddingNewsReview.com. "Even
though they took down the sign we are still going to keep our eyes
open and move forward with our protest."
