A New Jersey deli owner has outraged the far left by putting a hand-made sign in his shop window that proclaims March to be “White History Month” in his store.
The shop owner, Jim Boggess, owner of Jimbo’s Deli, has infuriated the race-baiting leftists saying, “No matter what you are — Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight — you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white.”
His sign reads: “CELEBRATE YOUR WHITE HERITAGE IN MARCH, WHITE HISTORY MONTH”
Naturally some race baiters tried to have the police arrest the shop owner. It didn’t work.
But a neighbor and former customer, Bhakti Curtis, who is bi-racial, doesn’t accept that. He said the sign, is “mocking Black History Month,” especially the way the T was crossed in “WHITE.” The cross piece was not right at the top, it was lower down, in a style used by the Ku Klux Klan and other white-power groups, Curtis said. That cross piece of the T has since been broadened to make it a more traditional, if top-heavy, capital T.
On March 3, Curtis saw the sign, told Boggess it offended him, but got no satisfaction. So he filed a complaint with the Flemington police. Detective Sgt. William Svard said Cpl. Louis Hribik’s report indicates that Curtis said the sign is “racist,” that he felt harassed by it and wanted to know what would be done about it.
Hribik went to Jimbo’s, looked at the sign, spoke with Boggess and decided that the sign wasn’t derogatory or racist and that no further police action was needed.
Boggess agrees with that assessment and believes he’s lawfully exercising his right of free expression. He keeps a copy of the Bill of Rights in his establishment for ready reference.
He said reaction to the sign has been mixed. Lots of people have been photographing his sign with their phones and giving him a thumbs-up. But others have objected, including someone from the Business Improvement District who asked him to take it down, he said.
This shop owner has a right to put up his sign. It is just that simple.
You have to admire a man who keeps a copy of the Bill of Rights handy.
I love this and the spunk this man is showing – it’s something all white people should be doing. It should be done until it shames black people into putting a stop to having their special month, their special colleges, their caucuses, etc.
Of course it’s mocking black history month, and guess what? It’s his right to mock anything he wants to so stuff a sock in it, Bucko.
Wish it wasn’t so far to New Jersey – I’d buy y’all lunch.
