Devon town branded racist.

In this morning,s paper the town of Bideford in Devon has had on it,s welcome sign "The little white town"
Now officials have deemed this to be racist and are to have it removed.
For over 150 years Bideford has been know as "The little white town" because of the large number of white buildings.
IMO this racist nonsense is going way over the top.

Probably some white do-gooder. Locals should just keep replacing it.

Totally ridiculous! It makes you wonder how the people who make these decisions get into power.
