A sign at Barista’s Restaurant in Hurricane is leaving many people with a bad taste in their mouths and sparking outrage within the community. The sign, placed Saturday across the street from Hurricane High School, is prompting fierce backlash from angry residents who are calling the sign offensive and inappropriate, saying the depiction of the bull’s genitalia is blatantly overdone. “It looks terrible,” Hurricane City resident Denise Mackelprang said. “I could see the bull, but not the details of the sex.

At least six businesses in Austin, Texas, have been plastered with stickers reading “Exclusively For White People,” drawing condemnation from the state’s residents, lawmakers and NAACP representatives. Facebook user Brianna Smith posted a photo Wednesday of a circular sticker on the outside of a display window at Rare Trends, an Austin clothing boutique in a historically black neighborhood. The sticker reads: “Exclusively For White People. Maximum of 5 colored customers. Colored BOH staff accepted. Sponsored by the City of Austin Contemporary Partition and Restoration Program.” (“BOH staff” refers to “back of house” workers, employees who do not usually interact with customers.) The sticker also features an official City of Austin logo. “This just goes to show racism is very much alive TODAY,” Smith wrote underneath the photo. “This was a hate crime created by someone who had way to much [sic] time on their hands. This sticker has been unknowingly posted on many private owned business in Austin.”
