OK Cafe co-owner reveals herself as racist trash

Most people who live around Atlanta have heard of the OK Café on the corner of Northside Drive (41) and West Paces Ferry. My family and I have been going there for years, but not so much in the last few years for one reason or another. We'd mostly switched over to the takeout shop instead of dine-in. I thought they'd taken down that old Georgia confederate flag sculpture years ago when they halfway burned down, but apparently not.

So I woke up this morning to see a flood of posts on Facebook and Twitter about a banner the co-owner put up during the recent marches in Atlanta, and the more I read about her response to concerns, the worse it got.

We've been encouraging people to give OK a try for years, but after this? No fucking way.

1. I wonder if that's a reference to Rick Warren's

Purpose Driven Life BS. Evangelical crapola.

These folks keep coming out from under their slimy rocks. And then they whine about the consequences.

3. Yeah, it had an aroma of something like that

Like spritzing room spray over a steaming pile of shit you won't bother to clean up.

4. I didn't realize it was still open until I heard that's where Pence went...

seemed like an odd choice but now I get it.

I predict an unfortunate fire in the kitchen soon.

5. They took down the old Confederate Georgia flag today

It's an improvement, in that at least the people who work there won't have to look at that piece of shit every day.

But the co-owner made some highly problematic statements to the local press about how she's for "white pride" and how Black Lives Matter "offends" her, so this one step isn't nearly enough to get us to go back there.
