    Falls police say woman put up racist sign

    NIAGARA FALLS—Two days after a man was sentenced to probation and community service for putting up a sign as a “joke” in a public works garage that said “whites only” on a drinking fountain, city police were called to a home in the 600 block of 25th Street on Sunday to investigate another racially charged sign.

    This one was clearly no joke.

    No charges were filed Sunday, but police told the woman she must take down the handwritten sign on a fence on her property saying, “I rent three bedrooms [at her address to] white people Niagara Falls.”

    The 53-year-old woman told police she put up the sign after someone tried to break into her house and added, “I can do what I want. I live in America,” according to a police report.

    Police said they received complaints and she must take the sign down. An officer at the scene said the woman agreed to take down the sign under protest. The officer said the woman already had seven more signs she was planning to hang up.

    If she were jewish and lived in israel then she could claim that forcing her to take the sign down is nothing short of joooo hating antisemitism.

    I do too. I also think all discrimination laws such as restaurants not being able to discriminate should be abolished.(I'm serious)

    There is racism everywhere.

    Too bad people can't just adopt a "live and let live" attitude.

    And.....yep......knew I could count on the Shit Run to pop his little head outta the cave he is in to squeal about the Jews.

    Hey Shit Run.......when's your conversion date to become islamic?

    Now that we have a black president.

    Racism is a thing of the past.

    All of these discrimination laws belong to anothe era and should be erased from the books.

    as a former real estate agent...there are reasons that people are blocked from things like this...you allow this to start and you will be amazed who they opt not to rent too...for example ...a lot of landlords do not like to rent to people with kids...they would take pets over kids...i think the current laws address the situation well...if she wants whites only then she cannot advertise it to the public...she will have to find herself white renters off the public market
