I think alot of you are missing the real point of this.... This has changed from being a civil rights issue to an economic issue.
Come on, don't kid youself. Here are a few telling quotes from the article:
...And some Denver City Council members have got their paintbrushes ready.
"Diversity has been a part of every major project we have done," said Denver City Councilwoman Deborah Ortega. "There is no reason this project should not have diversity. We really feel this needs to be contractually addressed. Without us going through this process, the deal doesn't exist...."
...Our grandchildren ski. And the ski industry has made no effort to really reach out to this huge market," said Sal Gomez, chairman of the Denver Hispanic Chamber. "It would seem to be that the city would want to make a requirement that Intrawest focus on emerging markets."
This is NOT about economics. I've also noticed personally that there aren't many Mexicans playing ice hockey.
Are we not making them feel welcome, or do you think maybe they just prefer playing soccer? Sooner or later somebody will surely tell them what's best for them though. Hockey.
