Charlotte Community Rallies for Removal of "Sambo" Sign

The Black owners of a barbershop in Charlotte are feeling the heat from community members who want them to remove the shop's "sambo"-styled logo before the 2012 Democratic National Convention kicks off next month. The shop owners argue that the No Grease! barbershop's controversial logo, above, confronts Americans about African-American stereotypes rather than reinforcing them. (Photo: Courtesy WBTV)
