Atlanta Police scratching their head about racist Elmer Fudd graffiti

Elmer-Fudd*Who did this? With all the negative attention going around about police doing unlawful things; now it appears some secret bandit has taken it upon him or herself to leave this documentation.

The Atlanta Police Dept. is searching for the graffiti artist that chose to depict the iconic cartoon character, Elmer Fudd, all dressed up in police attire; holding his famous rifle. But its the sign that Fedd stands alongside that is causing a ruckus.

The sign reads “Negro Season” and it is painted on a building in midtown ATL. A city that was 34 percent black in 2010.

“I don’t think of Atlanta as that type of city,” Sgt. Greg Lyon told 11 Alive News.

Still, not even police disapproval was enough for the immediate removal of the graffiti painting. It remained on the wall all weekend and wasn’t painted over until Monday.
