Photo of Memphis Halloween Attraction Deemed Racially Offensive

A photo posted to Instagram of a popular Halloween attraction in Memphis has sparked controversy for being racially offensive. In the photo, an executioner stands next to a young man in Black face hanging from a noose. The owner of the annual event says it is a “medieval scene out in a corn maze” and described the black makeup as a camouflage in place of a mask.
