Taking a Stand at the Birchwood

A few weeks back, during the occupation of Minneapolis's Fourth Precinct police station, the Birchwood restaurant in South Minneapolis was taking donations for Black Lives Matter Minneapolis. I wonder if that bit of solidarity cost them any business from their liberal and mostly white customers? It made sense to do it, though, given that they had a Black Lives Matter sign out front well before the shooting of Jamar Clark.

Now they have this sign in the window to the right of the door:

The languages at the bottom are Somali, Arabic, Spanish, and Hmong.

I have seen similar signs in other businesses around the metro area.
