(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is weighing in on a controversial art mural in Boston's Dewey Square.
The mural which is situated above the Rose Kennedy Greenway depicts a boy with a shirt wrapped around his head and wearing pajama pants.
Some claimed the art featured a terrorist, and not a child in pajamas.
"We got enough division in our country today. We don't need somebody out there to divide us and saying that's a racist thing, that's against a religion. It isn't," said Mayor Menino. "That was art made to show a young boy out there and that's what I believe it is."
The mayor told FOX 25 that good art is supposed to get people talking.
The mural is one of three done by Brazilian artists Os Gemeos. It's part of their show at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston.
