MASON, Ohio A tavern owner vows he won t take down
a window sign that declares, For Service, Speak English.
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission ruled Thursday that the
sign at the Pleasure Inn violates state discrimination laws and is
an affront to Hispanics.
But tavern owner Tom Ullum said the sign is meant to be
tongue in cheek.
We get Mexicans in here all the time and I don t discriminate,
said Mr. Ullum, who has owned the tavern for 21 years.
Mason is about 20 miles northeast of Cincinnati.
