This Sign at a Family Dollar Store Has Liberals Screaming “Discrimination!”

Some shoppers are hilariously calling this sign at a local Family Dollar in St. Louis “discriminatory.” The sign reads “Attn Customers: Please remove hoods before entering Family Dollar.” After a recent wave of robberies at gunpoint at Family Dollar Stores, including one incident in which a man fired a gun in the store, owners want to make sure security cameras can capture people’s faces.

“I would call it discrimination.” Roger Williams told St. Louis News 4. “That’s not right. It shouldn’t matter that you’re going in there with your hood on. If you’re not stealing, and you’re buying, purchasing something, what’s the problem? That shouldn’t be an issue.”

The signs aren’t approved by Family Dollar headquarters and the Public and Media Relations Manager Bryn R. Winburn said they’re launching an investigation. The pressure to comply with demands of the PC police must be overwhelming. 


  1. Most likely its a privately own store so obey their rule or leave their store. You are on their properties.

  2. They say ALL hoodies ..... INDISCRIMINATELY

  3. As a not racist Canadian, could someone explain why a hood is connected to race? I do not understand how clothing is related to crime or race. I see all kinds of people in urban places wearing them, as well as everyone who works outside in the winter, and most of the kids at our high schools. Is there some association with something else? Another Urban thing I must be missing, do they wear them a certain way, and who are they?
    As I see people in town, in the store in full faced helmets and or balaclavas everyday, I am certainly glad we do not have this kind of crime. I am also glad we can ride our snowmobiles and ATV on the city streets. I am glad I live where almost every crime here is solved in days, and almost everyone is caught too. And our police do not beat people up or shoot dogs or throw grenades at babies, and they do not take all your cash, your car or anything else, without a crime being committed. I suppose a 500 pound black bear at the back door, or a crazy moose falling in love with parked cars downtown is a bit more common than robbery here, but we can't get them to agree to follow signs, and neither would someone robbing this store, as they are not really into signs either.
    It is stupid, and a useless sign to post regardless of the intention.
