Benny Boy Brewery opponents in Lincoln Heights look like bigots

This image was grabbed from a Facebook group of Lincoln Heights residents.

Did you know: if you are white, own a business, but weren’t born in a given Los Angeles neighborhood, people will organize to keep you from opening your doors?

Sounds kind of un-American to me. There are valid reasons to oppose a brewery. The ethnicity and place of birth of the owners are not valid reasons.

I remember people in Artesia trying to make the same argument about immigrants from India opening businesses in their community. I remember people in Monterey Park making the same arguments about Chinese immigrants opening businesses in their community. you should be better than this; we are better than this.
