(KARE) A Roseville, Minnesota restaurant is under fire for table decor depicting a hanging.
According to the Minneapolis NAACP, Tyrone Williams and Chauntyll Allen were preparing to dine at Joe’s Crab Shack Wednesday night when they noticed a photo embedded inside the table.
It appears to show a large group of white people watching a public execution of at least one black person. On the bottom of the picture, it reads: “Hanging at Groesbeck, Texas on April 12th 1895.” At the top, the caption reads, “All I said was that I didn’t like the gumbo.”
“Although the manager was apologetic about the lynching depiction, that does not change the fact that this sickening image of black men being lynched was intentionally embedded inside of a table. This type of blatant racism should not be tolerated in this country, or in our local and national eating establishments. I have felt sick to my stomach and stressed out since seeing that image on the table where I was planning to eat my food,” said Williams.
