NPR: People Of Color Not Welcome Here
Here's a topic I never saw explored in NNY media....NPR asks, are black people welcome as tourists in NNY ?....The report alleges most of the tourists visiting here are white....white as a Trump rally....
Now, Nic Hillary might not like his welcoming, but is the North Country bigoted ? Could be, or at least the folks at NPR think so.
Now this startling conclusion is based on the anecdotal accounts of one person who had trouble at a bar and at a Wal-Mart in the eastern Adirondacks.
And they got a tourism 'expert' to chime in.
Tar a whole region and all its businesses.
NPR even offers suggestions, concluding that bigotry is bad for business.....Really....I hope the press picks this up and does a number on some businesses closer to home.
