Nashville's 'Sit In' Coffee Shop Changes Name After Massive Backlash!

The people have spoken and Bob Bernstein, owner of Bongo Java and Fido, will NOT name his new Jefferson Street coffee shop 'The Sit In.' Backlash over the name started on social media a few days ago with many calling the name racist. I believe Omari Booker said it best on Facebook, check out his post below...

 

Bernstein was surprised by the backlash because he claims he met with community leaders before announcing the name. Bernstein said:

"The idea was to pay tribute to a movement that inspired me. To have it used against me is hurtful."
