Fojol Brothers Food Truck Denies Racism Charge
This is what the owner had to say to the Huffington Post in response to complaints of racism:
Vitarello -- who says the truck is inspired, in part, by people his parents brought home for family meals, like a "medicine woman from some part of the world that I've never even heard of" -- tells The Huffington Post that since the business started in 2009, they've had "no more than five" people suggest that the truck's accoutrements have racist implications. It happens very infrequently. And so it doesn't seem very legitimate. It's generally people who are offended on behalf of another group," he says.
1) Not true. We know of more than 5 people that have complained to the Fojol Bros. Either way, let's show him that it's a lot more than 5 people that think this act is seriously offensive.
2) A "medicine woman from some part of the world that I've never even heard of" - Thanks for proving our point for us. Again.
3) You don't need to be South Asian or East African to be offended.
