the sign didn't say, "whites are better than hispanics." it said, "hispanics keep out." it's not racist.

I think the sign is funny, but I am an a-hole. there was a place in philly that had a sign, "order in englsh." they called him a "racist" too. I think people should invest in a dictionary.

Welcome to the club my brother

I own a grocery store and diner and I have two signs in there that I take literally...."We reserve the right to refuse service to ANYONE" and "English Only".

I am not a racist,but I understand english only and I'm not going to hire an interpreter nor am I going to have the cashier line held up while trying to learn another language.My place,my right and I pay the taxes on it.....don't like it,go somewhere else.

Blacks!!!hahaha
Trust me ( and I know you already know this ) many people wish they could put up a sign that said "blacks, keep out"!

In all fairness: not all Blacks are ghetto---------and, the excuses for failure and 'attitude' within the Black community are disappearing quite quickly. President Obama is proof that the glass ceiling has been broken.

You JUST realized this AZBear?

Here is another fact, NOT ALL Hispanics are illegal....

Wouldn't the same rules apply to both?

Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com

This video shows how one caucasian American is exercising her freedom of speech by posting a sign that says, "Hispanics keep out".

Not in violation of any law but it certainly says how ignorance and fear can lead to hatred of a particular group of people.

Here is another display of the ignorance that you claim is bliss. This grupo clearly demonstrates how ignorance and fear can lead to hatred of a particular group of people. And frankly, I've seen many more signs portraying this particular train of thought over the years than I have seen signs telling hispanics to keep out.

Where's the "outrage" by the posters who were bashing me as a "racist" now?
