The new "whites only"

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/01/06/delaware-elementary-school-posts-new-form-of-whites-only-signs/



As you can see the sign looks much like any other playground sign. There is a message in English stating that you must have parental or guardian supervision to play, and that playing is at your own risk. It is when you read what the Spanish portion of the sign that you realize this sign isn’t friendly at all and the people who put it up clearly didn’t want Spanish-speaking children playing on their playground. According to Google Translate, the Spanish portion of the sign says:


“You must have a permit to play in that field,” with the small writing underneath stating, “Violators will be subject to police action.”

1. Already in the pipeline to be gotten rid of, but

a little extra shaming on the way out the door is fine with me.

Shame on Milford.

2. Whoever thought he/she could write Spanish enough to make that sign should be

retrained. There is no Spanish word ermiso, and the verb in the sentence should be plural as in 'deben'. Bigot and moron both.
