Thank you for the info provided concerning the sign...I had no clue there had been a petition started against it. I've been on an e-mail campaign to anyone I could possibly think of that could help get that sign taken down. I've e-mailed Tavis Smiley, Carol Davis, Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, and several people/organizations in and around Pauling County. So far - it seems as if nothing is being done since the sign is still up; which is very discouraging.

The problem is it's not only the sign on the outside of this person's business. I found out he is a "former" white supremist who glorifies the ku, klux, klan (and their terror campaigns against blacks) by displaying them hanging from ropes in his restaurant as well as displaying hangings on his menus. There are all sorts of racist paraphernalia in his "museum" glorying the days of the kkk killing black people.

For anyone who may be interested in doing more than just signing the petition - I have gathered a lot of contact info for people wanting to send e-mails, letters, faxes, or phone numbers.

I especially urge anyone who lives in and around the Atlanta area (black, white, or whatever) to NOT to be silent on this issue. This affects ALL of us - and though this business owner is 'hiding' his racist agenda behind "freedom of speech" - people should let it be known that this is more of a "human rights" issue - than a "freedom of speech" issue. And that there's a fine line between freedom of speech and racist agendas; which should NOT be allowed to stand in the United States.

Thanks for your support! I'll post the info I have dug up in my next post.

[ Paulding County remains one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. At the center of Paulding's growth and development is the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber has a finger on the pulse of the community and is able to identify and target issues of importance to businesses in the County. Within the Chamber, businesses of all sizes have a strong voice and powerful impact on important community issues. Duh... In the message I left on their website - I challenged them to raise that "strong and powerful" voice in protest of this business. :rolleyes:

I've written her and expressed my outrage that it seems no civil rights peeps have spoken out against this obvious civil rights issue in Atlanta. I couldn't find any e-mail or contact info for Rev. Jackson...so if anyone has it PLEASE post it. I'll be glad to send my comments directly to him as well.

I did however find the National HQ info:

Chicago, IL 60615-2702
ph: 773-373-3366
fx: 773-373-3571

I plan on calling them tomorrow (it's after 5pm in Chicago) and try to get some contact info for Rev. Jackson.

Rev. Al Sharpton's contact info is: (212) 603-3708 (FAX). I will fax him a letter tomorrow as well. I could find no e-mail address for him either.

I hope people will get involved in this. If the NAACP can fight about KFC's chicken practices - they can certainly speak out concerning this business owner. I've ALREADY sent numerous e-mails to them. I don't understand the silence on this. Thanks again for your support!

It's people like this bastard that give the south a bad name. And I live in the south sobbing out loud.

Thanks for the all the info, freakcircusfreak (I hope to get your real name, I feel so bad calling you that, hahaha )

Personally, I plan on voicing my opinion. I've already signed the petition, but I am itching to do more. For those who think that this isn't something to worry about, I respectfully disapgree. This is extremely troublesome that blatant racism and bigotry still exists in 2005...And this is NOT just about Michael Jackson and defending him. To minimize it to just that is insulting. This is about hatred towards another race as well, plain and simple, and I hope that people see it that way.

Greetings Fans!

We have been all over a petition to remove a foul sign in Georgia that uses the N-word and insults Michael Jackson. The Local authorities have said they can not do anything unless someone complains and hundreds and hundreds of Fans have begun to sign a petition demanding that the sign come down. Calls have been placed as well at a steady rate to the proper office -( Complain about this (sign) call 770-443- 7563 EXT # 212 and ask for Drew Lane the district attorney! ) - and will continue until action is taken.
I got this e-mail I think 2 days ago from Administrator@Michaholics.com ...I called!
