The image below is a sign found in front of Salem Hardware, 6401 Salem Road in Cincinnati.
Racism, hatred, and religious prejudice are not American values and do not belong in the American democratic process. Our nation was founded in part by people running from religious prejudice, yet years later many in America fail to recall those core values.
When contacted, Salem Hardware espouses their right to “freedom of speech” in maintaining this sign in the front of their store. If you live in Cincinnati and find yourself offended by what is implied in the display of this sign, consider whether you wish to do business with such a company. Additionally, exercise your own “freedom of speech” to let others know your opinion of Salem Hardware and their sign.
