probably should have done this in the first post but here's the actual mural.I don't think there's anything overtly anti semetic there.. it's pretty pseudo-conspiracy theorist esk, and it's pretty cheesy in what it's trying to say, but racist? Not at all. If we're going to have freedom of speech than I think they have every right to draw something like this.
A mural painted on a wall in East London depicting Jewish bankers apparently exploiting black men is set to be removed following complaints that it has anti-Semitic undertones.
The council of the London borough of Tower Hamlets has called in the police and reportedly given the owner of the property 28 days to remove it.
The mural, titled Freedom for Humanity, depicts a group of businessmen and bankers counting money around a Monopoly-style board balanced on the backs of men with dark complexions. It was reportedly spray-painted on private property.
The Los Angeles-based artist, Kalen Ockerman, acknowledged that some of the bankers were Jewish but said the mural was not anti-Semitic.
You are so full of it.
