I dunno - it may be that the outrageous abuse of the right of free expression is the price we pay for having it in the first place. But if we have to put up with the deliberately offensive - and this fellow is a liar or simply stupid if he claims he didn't realize it was offensive - then why are we impelled to listen to people who complain that such things as the confederate flag must be removed from public places because it also offends?
Most cities require a permit for a sign like that, which must follow certain specifications. I'm sure NYC is not an exception. Beyond that, persons painting them normally must be licensed.
Regardless of the propriety, there are at least a few violations of city ordinance here.
