The small community of Milford, Delaware took swift action over the weekend after a barrage of criticism over signs posted in several public parks that appeared to be anti-Hispanic.
A Daily Kos blogger documented a number of signs that read “parental or guardian supervision is requried for the use of this playground equipment” in English, but warned Spanish-speakers “ustedes debe tener un permiso para jugar en este campo,” or that visitors must obtain a permit in order to play in this park. It goes on to warn that violators of this rule could be subjected to police action.
The sign was repeated in at least four different locations around the town, and according to Daily Kos blogger Delaware Dem, they were all posted in neighborhoods with sizable Hispanic populations.
