Georgia Restaurant Furthers All Those Georgia Stereotypes

New, 8 comments

This is the scene outside Georgia Peach Oyster Bar in Temple, GA, about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta, where people of all color—really, anyone with a brain—are up in arms after the restaurateur put up a ridiculously racist sign. Said sign involves anti-Obama sentiment and the n-word, but owner Patrick Lanzo says he's not a racist and is exercising free speech. Memo to Georgia: between this and the Real Housewives of Atlanta, you're not doing much to squash all those stereotypes.
