A friend of mine opened a bar named “KOON Bar” in Germany.
The bar is in Kassel and Kassel is often named as raccoon city, because a lot of raccoons live here. So he was looking for a short version paired with the raccoon head as a logo.
So in Germany, only a few people know the meaning it has in the US.
What do you think? Is it offensive to use it that way? It was never intended to be racist and the last 6 months nobody complained. A lot of different ethnical groups visit the bar.
I just wanted to know what people from the US think about it.
Thank you and greetings from Germany.
