Driving through town today I noticed a hair salon in the area where all of the businesses are hispanic and all of the signs are written in Spanish. The changeable sign on the wall said "We speak English!!!!" It's also the only business for 3 blocks that doesn't have any Spanish on any of the signs.
Good sales tactic or too politically incorrect?

The U.S. does not have a national language. We have Spanish speaking people here. I've been all over Europe and there are signs, menus and pricelists in English in even the most remote locations. Everyone has to bend a little. Not everyone speaks the same language.

I agree with anon :55. It's a business tactic. If you run a business in an area that is predominately Spanish speaking and you speak English then you want to announce that. I don't go to any of the shops a few blocks from here because the signs are all in Spanish and I speak very little Spanish. But if just one of those businesses announced that they speak English I would go.
