To me this message is rude, disrespectful and racist because it is basically saying that people that do not speak english are not welcome there. I think it is really mean and that they should allow anyone, regardless of what language they speak to enter the village. The evidence is the message, since only english is allowed, it is not easy for someone to learn english in ONE day.

    Read into the irony of the sign as well. “Excetions” is spelled wrong too which only makes such a racist sign even more pathetic. I had a really strong reaction to it as well.
