Remove the window display in the 183 E. Houston Street, NY, NY 10002 store.

The Vodoun-themed window display, using faux sacred Fon iconography, is culturally insensitive, as it insinuates that a world religion that has been viciously and incorrectly maligned for centuries is "spooky" and upholds the specious belief that African and African-derived religion and culture are "seasonally appropriate" to sell Autumn/Hallowe'en-inspired items.
