Art or Hate Speech?


The City of Chicago wants Federal authorities to investigate a message which they perceive to be racially-charged. Michael Corrigan posted the message, “Say no to the ghetto. White Power. Mt. Greenwood, the next Englewood,” on his own garage facing a home that is currently for sale. A white noose hung next to the words. Corrigan calls this “lawn art.” The Human Relations Commission called it “racist and deplorable,” and asked the Justice Department to investigate whether this display is in fact intimidation and in violation of the Fair Housing Act.
