Black Artist Makes Hate Posters

ABC News reports:
CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Black artist who goes by the name Hyero has been working hard to get a Bucktown gallery space ready to host her new exhibit this weekend. And the exhibit has garnered much more attention than originally expected since the 23-year-old distributed flyers around Chicago for the show, which is called "White Only," with a drawing of a noose. ...

Some critics have complained the flyers suggest they come from white supremacists or some other hate group. "I believe people should understand what a noose on anything should represent. It represents the blood of my ancestors," said a concerned resident, who did not want to share his name.

Is he descended from criminals? Maybe so. The critics are right. It was posted by a hate group.
