Restaurant Sign Called Racist

On the outskirts of Snellville sits Houston’s Finest Sports Bar and Cigar Lounge, its doors now chained shut with a sign many residents find offensive: "Closed Due to African American Continuous Employee Theft."

Cynthia Quarterman is outraged, in part because her 15-year-old son will soon join the workforce."The concern is will every employer say ‘look, here’s an African-American male. Will he be stealing?’" Quarterman said.

The owner of the club, the one who wrote the sign, is himself African-American.
