We are a group of citizens in and around the Springhill, Louisiana community who want to put an end to the xenophobic & distasteful articles published by the Sarepta Community Star. The most recent article which has sparked our outrage is an article entitled "Mexicans Everywhere Spraying Poison for Entergy" in which the editor refers to the Entergy employees as illegals, the language they speak as "Mexican" and other xenophobic comments. In response, we have sent emails to the editor asking for the article's removal, an official apology, or the people would seek to shut down publications. The response has been radical comments, distasteful writings, and poor professionalism.
We are now seeking 500 signatures to deliver to the following businesses which financially support the Sarepta Community Star, asking them to cease their financial support for the Sarepta Community Star or to request the Sarepta Community Star issue an official apology for their poor content. We do not believe these businesses condone this type of material, and we want them to join us in supporting change to the Sarepta Community Star.
