ELIZABETH, Pa. — There is a debate in Elizabeth over a mask that is hung by a noose on the wall of a local bar.
Some say it's racist, but the owner of Kickstand Restaurant maintains that it's not.
Photos and video of the decoration have been shared hundreds of times on social media.
"I’m looking around and right in front of me is this mask, this hanging face on a noose," said Jasmine Mull, who posted about it. "If you don’t want to call it a black man looking like it’s being lynched, it’s a very dark complected individual."
