Review for Grey2K USA, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I am a Mexican-American from Tucson Arizona. I was very offended when a Grey2k Board Member made a very racially insensitive comment about people who like to go to the dog races. On a Grey2k Facebook page, this board member made the statement "educated white people don't go to bet on the dogs". The owners of Grey2k never apologized or reprimanded this board member. Many people from my community urged Grey2k to comment about this racist statement, but they just ignored us.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Because of their racist statements, I would not support this organization.

The statement you are referring to was inappropriate and in no way represents GREY2K USA. The individual who made that statement was not speaking for GREY2K USA at the time, and left the Board shortly afterward.
