CANARSIE - Residents are outraged by controversial posters placed on phone booths in Canarsie and Mill Basin.

The poster depicts a white man holding a noose around a black man's neck while he hangs from a tree. Community activist Kevin McCall says there are seven posters up around Brooklyn

The posters are apparently an advertisement for music. Residents say the ad is completely unclear and offensive.

City officials were uncertain whether the phone booths are city property or privately owned, but they say either way, the posters were put up illegally.
