Restaurant Sign Called Racist

Duffie Dixon, WXIA-TV (Atlanta), July 19, 2007

On the outskirts of Snellville sits Houston’s Finest Sports Bar and Cigar Lounge, its doors now chained shut with a sign many residents find offensive: “Closed Due to African American Continuous Employee Theft.”


The owner of the club, the one who wrote the sign, is himself African-American.

The business license was granted to J.L. Menafee of Snellville. A page has a profile of the place when it was open, claiming it had a clientele that was primarily African-American.

Deborah Fuller came here often. She said Menatee complained openly his employees were stealing from him.
