A pop-up food cart with paper plates signs reading “free food for black people” in the streets of New York has been branded “racist” by angry onlookers.
A man and a woman were spotted setting up a cart around 9:00 a.m. outside Bronx Supreme Court advertising their free doughnuts and juice on Styrofoam plates.
But their three controversial handmade signs caused plenty of outrage among passersby.
One woman, who was repeatedly denied any grub when she confronted the duo, said: “Are you kidding me? If I did something like that, it would be considered hate.”
A young man running the cart also refused to serve a white person.
The woman, who was running the cart, insisted that it was not restricted to just African-Americans.
She said: “Mexican people are black.”
The pair closed up the pop-up shop around 10:30 a.m. – just an hour and a half after they started serving.
What would be the reactions if we put any sign for any reason containing “for white people” in it?
