Paisano's Italian Restaurant mimics the Black Lives Matters Movement

Paisano’s Under Fire

Paisano's Italian Restaurant (NM) mimics the Black Lives Matters Movement

KOAT-TV reported Monday that Paisano’s in Albuquerque is selling “black olives matter” shirts and hats after making national headlines for putting the phrase on a sign outside the restaurant.

Paisano’s owner Rick Camuglia said he emblazoned the phrase on the restaurant's main sign to sell a new recipe: a tuna dish with black olive tapenade.

Camuglia posted pictures of the dish and the sign on Facebook, drawing complaints he was being insensitive and trivializing a movement aimed at trying to stop police shootings of black residents.

Camuglia insisted he was not trying to stir racial tensions and was only trying to sell food.

He said that people from all over the world has called his restaurant to show him support.

He said that he put the slogan on hats and T-shirts because people who supported the restaurant wanted to by a souvenir of sorts from the restaurant.

Camuglia also told the station that business is booming.

Paisano's Italian Restaurant (Albuquerque, NM)

........................................

In the early 1970's, Joseph Camuglia opened Paisano's Italian Restaurant. Paisano's began with a limited menu featuring pizza and hearty Italian sandwiches on freshly baked bread, but soon grew to offer a complete Italian menu specializing in traditional preparations of fresh pasta, veal, fish, poultry and beef. Everything served is created in our on-premise kitchen from scratch.
