Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. said he was eating tacos for dinner. This was what he was doing to serve his Latino community. So what do angry activists do? They send tacos! Fox News Latino reported, "The office of East Haven's mayor was blasted with prank phone calls and a delivery of hundreds of tacos Thursday after his now-famous quip that he would address accusations of anti-Latino bias by eating tacos, a remark that left emotions raw in the town's large Hispanic community."
New Haven has roughly 29,000 residents and of course is mostly white-collar. But with a 10% of Latinos living there, the comment turned those 3000 residents into angry activists. Although Mayor Maturo will not be resigning, I'm sure he'll think twice before he says anything to a minority reporter again. Yes we know he apologized but come on...stop generalizing. These days more and more people always come up to me and start bringing up generalizations about Latinos including food and dancing. -_-.
