A Fine Line Between Racist and Romantic?

New, 22 comments

Does the mural above?painted on a wall at East 2nd Street and Avenue A by he Tats Cru?strike you as racist or romantic? We guess that's in the eye of the beholder. Long time resident and community activist Ayo Harrington saw the mural with a shackled black woman and cried foul to CB3, demanding it be taken down. But it turns out the mural was part of a marriage proposal and titled "Untitled: (man with ring rides chariot pulled by snow leopard to save beautiful woman captured by unruly chow chow with pink lasers coming out of its eyes)". Of course the subject of the painting said "yes".
