Barack Obama

A Barack Obama T-shirt with a picture of cartoon character Curious George has sparked a protest in Georgia on Wednesday. The T-shirt equates Obama to the likeness of the cartoon monkey.


The shirt being sold at Mulligan's Food and Spirits, a bar in Marietta, shows Curious George, the cartoon monkey, peeling a banana with the words "Obama in '08" printed beneath.


About a dozen people gathered outside the bar Tuesday to protest the shirt. The Southeast regional director of the Anti-Defamation League says the shirt is "an outrageous slur" against Obama and all African-Americans.


Mike Norman, who owns Mulligan's Food and Spirits says the T-shirt is not meant to be racist. He told the Associated Press that he thinks it's funny because he says Obama and Curious George "look so much alike."
