Some chefs spend their lifetimes unsuccessfully slogging away to improve business.

But all it took for Reedy Creek Diner chef Greg Simons in Lexington, North Carolina, was to put up a controversial language sign and he’s seen his sales treble.

Mr Simons put up the ‘No speak English. No service’ sign in March and says he’s received great support - with some people asking for souvenir copies to take home .

I still remember signs that said no blacks allowed no Mexicans allowed and no dogs allowed. In actuality the same sentiment of racism is felt by some people today but is a little less accentuated but has the same old connotation. I have no problem with speaking English but this is done with bad motives.

How is this racist if it applies to everyone who doesn't speak English? Are you claiming to be a mind reader to know that the owner did this for bad motives? Maybe he just didn't want to deal with anyone who couldn't make themselves understood in English. Maybe he didn't want to have to hire interpreters so that those customers too lazy to learn to speak English (actually American, the British speak English) could order something from his eatery?

I do agree that if one is going to live here they should learn the English language. However, the attitude of learn English or get the hell out is quite assinine. With the lack of knowledege of proper use of English most of Americans would have to leave. The country talk....ebonics.....yuppie lingo....all of the other totally ignorant ways of speaking should fall into the same category. Most people in this country have no clue how to speak proper english and use words that do not exist. Examples...I threw the ball...not I throwed....I ahve already eaten....not I already ate.....English learn it use it properly or get out...not "git" out. Nothing is more stupid than listening to a redneck or someone from the hood talk. Both are equally ignorant.
