A convenience store in New Mexico is causing outrage in its community after its owner has plastered its walls with racist signs that attack President Obama, Muslims, and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Local news station KOB 4 reports that a convenience store in Mayhill, New Mexico, has angered local residents after displaying signs that read “Obama and other Muslims not welcome here” and “Colin Kaeper-dick, you overpaid half-breed: Take your millions and go back to Africa.”
Despite the store owner’s apparent contempt for political correctness, a former coworker tells KOB 4 that the owner is actually very intolerant of anyone who says anything that offends him.
“If you go in there and you offend him, you can’t go in there no more,” Marlon McWilliams, who used to work at the store, tells the station. “He turns lots of people away.”
McWilliams says he tries to avoid going into the store, but says for many people who live in the rural area have difficulty avoiding it because it’s “the only place you can go to get milk and bread.”
The convenience store’s Facebook page has been bombed with negative reviews from locals who simply do not want to be exposed to racism when they go to buy a snack.
“Disgusting disgusting disgusting,” wrote one person. “I cant think of another way to describe this.”
“Sick, demented and racist,” wrote another. “Saw the signs and refuse to even step any closer. Don’t use religion to spew hate!”

WATCH: Corey Lewandowski fumes after Sheila Jackson rips him apart for hiding the truth about Trump
As part of its investigation into President Donald Trump’s conduct related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the House Judiciary Committee called Corey Lewandowski — a key witness in the probe’s report — for a hearing Tuesday afternoon.
But Lewandowski — the president’s former campaign manager known for aggressively manhandling a reporter in 2016 — was committed to making a mockery of the proceedings. The White House had said, on highly dubious legal grounds, that it was exerting privilege over Lewandowski’s communications with Trump and that he would only directly address matters already revealed in the Mueller report. He decided to follow this direction.
US Justice Department sues Snowden over new book
The US Justice Department on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Edward Snowden seeking to prevent the former CIA employee and National Security Agency contractor from profiting from his new book.
The civil lawsuit against Snowden, who is living in Russia after leaking information about the US government's mass surveillance program, accuses him of violating non-disclosure agreements he signed with the CIA and NSA.
The lawsuit says Snowden published his book, "Permanent Record," which went on sale on Tuesday, without submitting it to the agencies first for pre-publication review.
