Remember the L5 Incident?
En la mañanita, tenía esto en mi Inbox:

Dear Aislinn,

I just read your letter in La Prensa. I too am shocked. I never heard back from you regarding my detailed response nor did you mention it in your letter. I'm sorry that my explanation was not acceptable, but I feel that at least it deserves an honest and frank discussion. Although your letter may hurt our business, I once again assure you that as a Family Company, we have never sanctioned any discrimination. I truly believe that we have one of the most diverse Team of employees in all of California. Whether it be differences of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation, in over 20 years we have never tolerated discrimination. We have over 700 employees and regardless of their prejudices or bias, I do not believe that ONE of them will tell you that we would sanction inappropriate behavior of any form. Our restaurants and clubs serve 1000s of Guests every week. We have done so for more than 20 years and daily we serve Guests from Mexico, Japan, Russia, Iraq, Iran, Canada and almost every other Country. We have never been accused of treating people like second-class customers. My sister-in law is from Ensenada, she would be happy to explain our Family values to you.

Aislinn, my wife and I are Jewish and we have felt the pain of discrimination, hate and bigotry. I understand stereotyping and know that it is real. From this I have learned that it is not ethical or moral to judge an entire group based on the actions of one. If our security guard shocked and offended you and your friends, once again, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I did my best to explain our ID policy and the laws we abide by. I do not feel that it is right to stereotype an entire company and impact the livelihood of a Family and over 700 employees over the actions of one.

I look forward to hearing from you and would be pleased to meet you in person to continue this discussion. I'm sorry if I sound angry, but as you've inferred, it hurts to be treated unfairly.

Most Sincerely,
David Cohn

A cabron? Letter in La Prensa? Ya hasta se me había olvidado que la mande. En fin. A penas la publicaron en la edición del 30 de Enero. Clik on this link and scroll down. (Es la misma carta que ya había puesto aquí).

Resulta que ahora si, el vato me quiere ver para platicar en persona. Hmmmm. I wonder why?
