Caboolture cafe sign 'joke' slammed as racist slur

A Caboolture cafe is at the centre of a brewing storm after numerous people branded a sign outside the Queensland shop as racist.

Caboolture man Ranald Link said he was disgusted when he saw it at Tarmac Takeaways, in Aerodrome Rd, on Friday and further angered when staff refused to remove it.

I dunno why it was on a sign, but I wish it didn't make the news everytime some lamo took offence to something or other.

I think it means, it is okay as long as it isn't my group that is being made fun of. Which is hypocritical.

This is outrageous!

The apostrophe is missing from "Today's Special", and that's not how you spell "aboriginal"!

Racial discrimination is alive and well in Caboolture.

Is there a law against it?

Maybe if the Generator had been stolen, it would be more serious matter.
