Phoenix restaurant says this is a photo of coal miners. But I see offensive blackface


Who determines what's offensive? A photo in a downtown Phoenix restaurant raises this key question.

The “who” is not the author. I find the article offensive because it tries to obscure history. Early industry was filthy, and the people who did those jobs (and died young as a result) do not deserve to have their lives forgotten just because some punk kid wants to find offence in places where none exists.
