    Only, man who put it up is black.

    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.”

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

    The business license was granted to J.L. Menafee of Snellville. A myspace.com page has a profile of the place when it was open, claiming it had a clientele that was primarily African-American.

    Deborah Fuller came here often. She said Menatee complained openly his employees were stealing from him.

    Why is it a big deal if it is racist? Does the owner receive any money from the government to run the restaurant? Is the restaurant owned by the government? No, it's private. Therefore he should be able to put up whatever sign he wants. By the way, it's good to see that people still exercise their freedom of speech, eh?

    (Yawn) People are free to speak and free to be wrong and free to have racist attitudes. People are also free to criticize what people say. Those critics are also free to be wrong.
