‘Obama & other Muslims not welcome here’: Convenience store’s signs spark outrage

No comments
According to online reviews, the Mayhill Convenience Store in New Mexico has poorly cleaned bathrooms, a cockroach problem and signs that say things like “Obama The Anti-Christ.”
That last detail has ignited a firestorm of controversy online after an Albuquerque TV station reported on the store this past Friday. According to KOB, the store has been posting such signs for years. Mayhill is about a 4-hour drive southeast from Albuquerque.
Among the most contentious signs are ones that feature an “Obama swing set” with a picture of a noose, another that calls for the “half-breed” to be sent “to Kenya” and another that simply states “KILL OBAMA” with “care” written in much smaller letters on another line, according to reviews and social media posts.
KOB interviewed a former employee of the store who said the owner routinely rejects customers who disagree with him and sells the signs to those who like them.
“They're offensive to me from time to time, but you know that's my opinion,” Marlon McWilliams, the former employee, said. “That's the way I feel.”
KOB also reports that the store is for sale for $359,000. An expired listing on BusinessBroker.com had the asking price at $300,000.
But while KOB’s report has drawn worldwide attention to the tiny community of Mayhill, with outlets such as the IndependentMic.com and AOL News all picking the story up, social media postings show that many visitors to the store have been shocked by the signs in the past.
