Default I Don't Believe It !

Oooh Im mad, just had an e-maIL from my work. Ive got a sticker in the back window of my company vehicle which says

'' IF YOU DONT LIKE THIS COUNTRY
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO LEAVE''

Im being told that this does not fit with company policy and is verging on racist, & could cause offence,they have also said that if any damage should happen to my vehicle that I will have to pay for it.Ive had nothing but positive comments about it since I put it in the window.

Does anyone think the above statement is racist? Or could cause offence

OF COURSE IT'S OFFENSIVE, it's right up there with the classics like 'HONK IF YOU BURNED A ****** (insert at will) LAST NIGHT' and my personal favourite 'IF YOU CAN READ THIS, YOU'RE PROBABLY ****** (insert at will) SCUM TRYING TO NICK MY STEREO'.

Offensive, like in a 'Jimmy Cranky' type of way

Well Im glad it aint just me over-reacting, I could have stuck one of the ones that says if you dont like this country FUCK OFF


Then I could see point, all Ive had is positive comments and thumbs up from other drivers, its a pity more people dont have the same on their cars & bikes


And no Im not an undertaker, but a funny line johnyfp

How can it be offensive when it doesn't specify WHO should leave the country! No races mentioned, could mean disgruntled white people so there!!!!!
