The Atlanta-Constitution is reporting that a suburban Atlanta bar owner is selling “Obama ‘08 Curious George” t-shirts. The bar owner, Mike Norman, asserts that the t-shirts are not intended to offend. According to the report, Norman both “acknowledges the image’s Jim Crow roots” yet “sees nothing wrong with depicting a prominent African-American as a monkey.” About a dozen protesters gathered outside to challenge the racism of the t-shirts(pictured here, photo credit), yet the bar owner is not responsive to these charges. In fact, he seems emboldened by them. Apparently, he believes that he’s providing a public service, reminding people they have a right to offend. “This is my marketing tool,” he said.
