Protesters in Hollenbeck Park felt otherwise and barracked the performers. “I made efforts to speak to a woman who appeared to be in charge but was always ignored and often shouted over,” recalled Marc Lowenstein, the company’s music director. “Some of the things she said were: ‘This park is for brown people’ and ‘This is not a park for white people. You are white people.’”

That's not even possible racism , that's blunt in your face racism!

Anyone who thought this whole fiasco wasn't based on Racism is very naive.

Can you imagine if it was the other way around?

Honestly I can't even imagine if it was the other way around..
It would be a top story on CNN and all the other networks about how L.A is a racist city , there would probably be riots too.

What floored me--OK lots of things in the article floored me--was when they said the school children in the band felt alienated and threatened because the traveling opera people spoke English! The children are speaking Spanish at home and amongst their peers but surely classes in their public school are conducted in English? And they are aware that that's the first language for most of the country and it's not meant to slight them?

I don't know about riots but it would definitely be a big deal.

In my experience, US born Latinos only speak Spanish when necessary. Those protestors are so full of crap.

Yep. These are probably middle class latinos who went to college and got sucked into a mix of "aztlan" types, animal rights/anarchist groups, #blm, maoists,etc. The average mexican in boyle heights (soon to be known as bohi) doesnt give a crap and would be happy to see some redevelopment and more jobs. Who do you think would be working in the kitchen of the vegan cafes? Ever been in the kitchen of an la restaurant? These are some of the toughest, most resilient, migratory, hardworking mofos on the planet and they will pack up and move to pacoima or wherever if they get priced out and not whine like biznatches.

I think that it's time to start having a Low Rider Hispanic cars and coffee car show there every Sunday morning.

Yes it's totally insane.
But, briefly reading their insanity on their webpage...I have the feeling they haven't gotten over that California is no longer part of Mexico.
But then if you want to go that far back in time...wouldn't Native Americans has a better claim to the land than them? Shouldn't we all be speaking some kind of Native American dialect? Afterall this WAS Native American land.

They are just making an embarrassment out of themselves and not helping the cause of "THE PEOPLE".
The racism is appalling.
I just really hope that when the city is 'listening to the community' about 'development concerns' they aren't listening to these morons.

I don't think latinos should be 'kicked out' of Boyle Heights...but I think these morons SHOULD be kicked out.

In this L.A Times article I read how this craft brewery with "White Owners" (yeah they said that..) wants to open in Boyle Heights and they want to be accepted by the community and want to meet with community organizers...
I can't imagine a meeting with this group going over too well..


When the white owners of Indie Brewing Co. pitched a tasting room to the chamber's board members, they brought their consultant, Ulisses Sanchez, who was raised in Boyle Heights.

"This is really a community process, especially here in Boyle Heights," Sanchez told the board members. "There's been a strong effort to protect the culture here."

Indie Brewing Co.'s plans include community art on the walls of the tasting room; the company wants to meet with Boyle Heights organizations to raise the support needed to help get the OK for the tasting room from the city.

Gentrification pushes up against Boyle Heights — and vice versa - LA Times
