An Italian restaurant in New Mexico is under fire after making merchandise with a slogan that mimics the Black Lives Matters Movement...

Paisano’s owner Rick Camuglia said he emblazoned the phrase on the restaurant's main sign to sell a new recipe: a tuna dish with black olive tapenade...

“People were calling us racist. Saying we were a white supremacist restaurant. Some got really derogatory and just started cursing me out.”

Camuglia also told the station that business is booming.

"People have filled the restaurant and told us to leave up the sign," Camuglia said. "That's great, you know, because a lot of people make a living off working for this restaurant."


Those are just some highlights from the article, the whole thing is great.

All I really have to ask about this is...

Do they deliver?

Ironically...


People were calling us racist. Saying we were a white supremacist restaurant.


Coming from people defending a George Soros funded movement, who's hoping to achieve... the total destruction of cultural and racial identity. Pretty much the most racist thing you could do...

Black Lives Matter: Produced By George Soros

BLM Leader living in Soros-funded house

All in a day's work for BLM controversy:


The strong anti-Israel language stunned liberal Jews, many of whom have expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement’s protests against shootings by police of unarmed black men.

“It is a real tragedy that Black Lives Matter — which has done so much good in raising awareness of police abuses — has now moved away from its central mission and has declared war against the nation state of the Jewish people,”


Whoops on their part!

I wonder if this will end like "Femen" which got cut off from funding when it announced an Israel branch...

Funny how people take money without asking who's giving it to them or why...

It reminds me of this, which I found quite amusing.

When wth they ask me at Chipotle pinto or black I'm always tempted to say all beans matter. But that's just asking for a day ruiner any way you cut it.... And an awesome story.

I LOVE black olives! I could eat a whole container of them for a meal. I've been eating a lot of them this year in the summer salads I make.

I almost always include olives when I put together a tuna mix for sandwiches. I've never heard of tapenade.

I think the sign is humorous and clever and obviously a good move for their business... and the olives are gender neutral. Tee hee!

Now I am craving them.

I was once having a conversation with two other people before they were leaving to drive home and one of them said "be careful of black ice." We had just dropped below 29 degrees F at the time(below 0 C)

I said "black Ice matters."

LOL

People come on now. Your anti racism IS racism.

Anyway black olives DO matter. Freaking love black olives.

mmmmmmmmm

People are becoming unfunny monotonous repeaters of electromagnetic coded messages from "the network."

If I saw that sign I would crack up and be like yes. This place is not corporate, and they're funny. I'll spend my money there haha.

Yes, Black Olives Matter!

Except the california pitted black olives packed in water.

They don't matter at all. Maybe for cheap filler, I don't know, lol!

Good for the Resto!

The Romans planted olive trees along their roads for the locals. Yep.

Olives have been a long time food source and high value commodity for like forever.

boncho, I'm not sure if timing is the reason, but I feel like you've been full steam ahead amongst all this political controversy.

Like a hot knife through criminal butter.

My mom always used to tell me in the winter when I was driving to "Watch out for black ice". Sounded like she said "Watch out for black guys." . Had to drive home through a rough neighborhood so I got a chuckle out of it...

I made an LGBTQ sandwich.
Lettuce, guacamole, bacon, tomato, and queso.
It was delicious, but a lesbian chick got pissed off because she thought I was poking fun.

Mmmmmm..... Paisano's. If anyone's ever in Albuquerque, I highly recommend it. Delicious.

This is outrageous!

Everyone knows Black Olives are more of a Greek thing than an Italian one.

(Bloody Romans, always stealing the Greeks best ideas)
