Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A McDonald's in the German city of Mannheim caused a stir on social media on Wednesday after customers discovered a pair of signs in both Turkish and German. The two signs, the franchise owner said, were meant to be inclusive for all his customers. The only problem was that the sign in Turkish directed customers to a location in a seedier part of the city, while the sign in German pointed customers in the direction of a wealthier district. ... "We have worked together with international employees for 25 years, every day without any racist incidents. To be accused now of discrimination makes us speechless and sad," [owner Manfred] Büch said

So, what is more dangerous to a human's health? The "seedier" parts of Mannheim or the parts between a seeded bun at McDonalds?

It's cool that you used the German pronunciation of "raise" in the headline.

If a McDonald's sign is Naziism, then nothing is Naziism.

Did the seedy parts of Mannheim become seedy before the Turks moved in? Or after?

Because God knows no city has ever had "seedy" parts until foreigners moved in!

Was there an "ok" symbol on the sign?
