Bar removes Obama sign; still faces protest

By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2012, 10 p.m. - 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 "sit-in."

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."
