Civil rights and community activists in Richmond are protesting a banner on a downtown strip club depicting President Obama as the Joker from Batman.
Representatives from the NAACP, the Nation of Islam and other groups gathered outside Club Velvet at noon to protest what they called an affront against the nation's first black president and "veiled attacks on all African people."
The news conference was part street theater: a dancer from the club walked through the crowd with a sign that read "Strippers for Obama."
Club owner Sam Moore says the banner is not racist, he's simply unhappy with Obama's policies.
