Shop owner causes outrage with sign banning 'black teenagers and dogs'
An Australian shop owner who put a sign up banning "black teenagers and dogs” has taken it down after it caused widespread outrage. The printed sign in the window of a Melbourne milk bar read: “Statement. Because the 14-18 year old black [sic] always steal. Prohibit 14-18 year-old blacks and dogs into the shop”. A resident, known as Cam, tweeted a photo of the sign and told 3AW radio of his disbelief. "I don't think anyone in the Melton community would fancy this," he said.
