An Italian restaurant in New Mexico has come under fire with race-baiters due to a sign they put up that Black Lives Matter is calling “disgusting.”
According to Three Percent Nation, it all started when Paisano’s Restaurant in Albuquerque posted the sign “Black Olives Matter, Try Our Tapenade” on their marquee last week. The photo of the sign posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page quickly went viral, with users calling it “offensive,” “tacky and hideous” and “in very bad taste.”
“As a woman of color I find your posting offensive and in very bad taste,” one race-baiter wrote. “You simply wish to rub salt in an ugly festering wound which evil minded people refuse to allow to heal. The civilized world No longer has any tolerance for your hateful public display of what passes to you as humor. Young men and women are dying have a shred of humanity.”
The restaurant quickly took the sign down and the owner expressed shock at how angry people became about it.
“We didn’t think anybody would be offended by that,” the owner said. “It was not our intent to offend anybody.”
However, then something shocking happened that Black Lives Matter never saw coming: people began rallying around the restaurant.
“It’s ok to have a sense of humour,” one patriot wrote on Facebook. “As a chef I understand that you weren’t trying to be offense. In our industry humour is the only thing that takes the stress away from our job. It’s unfortunate the only people who work in the trade will understand.”
In fact, sales have increased dramatically at Paisano’s ever since race-baiters began getting “offended” by their sign. After being inundated with support from patriots, Paisano’s released the following statement:
Since Wednesday, July 13th, we have been inundated with positive, supportive phone calls from the community as well as overwhelmed with business, not only from our “regulars”, but from so many new customers who came from Albuquerque, surrounding cities, and even neighboring States simply to support us.
A heartfelt “Thank You” to you from our Crew, some of whom were moved to tears because of your kind words and outpouring of support.
Many nowadays would contend that society has changed for the worse, but our experience this week has proven the opposite. We have encountered so many quality people of character; salt of the earth and the bedrock of America. Awesome.
Many have shown a unique way to show solidarity. I can’t count the number of customer’s orders who’ve included adding Black Olives to every dish ordered. Pizzas, Sandwiches and pasta dishes with “double Black Olives Please!” all day long. So much that we almost ran out and ordered more.
We have served Albuquerque for over 40 years and look forward to the next 40.
