What the literal translation of such a sign results in is the understanding that the owner/management of the business where this sign is displayed, can decide that they don’t like people with blue eyes, and so can refuse to serve them. This would never be you of course, but that other person over there.
I have had managers defend these signs on the basis of being able to refuse to serve someone who is causing a disturbance of some sort. In such a case, no sign is needed as there are already laws about creating public disturbances; a quick call to the police will have the disturber(s) moved along. Anyway, if that was what was really meant, shouldn’t the sign read, “Anyone causing a disturbance will result in our calling the police.” Seriously, who would actually put their hands on another person to remove them from their establishment?
It is well past time to have all such signs removed from businesses in the Spokane area. If we aren’t really racist, it is time for our entire community to stop acting like we are.
