Remove/Repaint Racist Mural on Flatbush Ave.

"Welcome to the Jungle" depicting naked aliens with big lips and bones in their noses....

The owners of the new apartments at 510 Flatbush sure know how to show love and respect to the residents (or animals in this case) of Flatbush. It's bad enough that people are actively being pushed and priced out of neighborhoods they've lived in for years, but to make a mockery of them and the beautiful cultures what make up the area is wrong. 

We want the mural painted over and Flatbush artists given the opportunity to create what Flatbush really is, a mixture of beautiful Caribbean, African and American cultures. 

It doesn't matter what the intention behind the painting or who created it, it promotes negative stereotypes of black and brown people in the area. Flatbush is not a scary jungle, but an underrepresented, underfunded, Oasis that's flourished through years of being underserved and forgotten by the majority.
