FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK FOR MORE FOX LIFESTYLE NEWS Macs Fresh Market owner, Reggy McDaniel, told KALB the message was meant to share Fresh Market owner faith with others.

I thought it was a perfect time because everybody is talking about the border, some people want it, some dont want us to have one. The only thing I was shocked about was that its racist. I have never in my life been accused of being a racist, Im 70 years old ; I havent evolved into one.
