The Coon Chicken Inn was a 3-restaurant chain. The restaurants were in Salt Lake city, Portland (Oregon), and near Seattle.

I was going on what was said about them in the movie "Ghost World" That's where I first saw the poster. The character Enid brings the poster to Art class as a "found art object"
They are horribly racist aren't they! How could anyone have ever drawn such hideous images.

I wonder if they will show the racist cartoon of the NBP intimidating white Philly voters in 2008?
