Press Conference & Protest Tomorrow At ABC-TV Network Studio’s.

The day has come. Tomorrow Thursday is the day that Boricuas For A Positive Image will converge with all their supporters which include, elected officials, labor leaders, workers, students and all other sectors of the Puerto Rican/Latino community. We will also have support from the African-American community and Anglo community. Everyone will have one theme: ABC NEEDS TO MAKE A PUBLIC APOLOGY & MEET WITH US TO PREVENT THIS TYPE OF INSENSITIVITY FROM REOCCURRING.

The following is a call sent out by the NILP:

NiLP Action Alert! 

Boricuas for a Positive Image
Join The Protest!
Thursday, January 12, 2012
5:30 Pm
ABC Television Corporate Headquarters
77 West 66th Street & Columbus Avenue
New York, NY 10023
against the blatant offense by ABC television’s portrayal of the Puerto Rican community! The ABC show “Work It” blatantly offends the Puerto Rican community by portraying Puerto Ricans as “good drug dealers”
 
“Boricuas for a Positive Image” a newly formed ad hoc group of activists, will hold a second protest outside ABC television corporate headquarters this coming Thursday, January 12th in a continued effort to call attention to the inflicted offense that ABC’s “Work It” pilot sitcom has caused the Puerto Rican/Latino community . . . where Puerto Ricans were stereotyped as expert vendors of narcotics. A character called Angel, played by the actor Amaury Nolasco, is scripted as saying to be an expert on selling drugs because he is Puerto Rican.
Protest organizers will be announcing their demands from the television network, including calling for a public apology.
 
Stand Up For Dignity & Justice!
Be at the Protest!
Thursday, January 12, 2012

5:30 Pm Protest
ABC Television Corporate Headquarters

En La Unidad
Esta La Fuerza! Si Se Puede!

The following is the latest statement we have received
“It is unfortunate that ABC would choose to look for humor by exploiting misleading stereotypes about Puerto Ricans, rather than highlight the positive contributions Puerto Ricans have made to the well-being of this nation. This unfortunate, unfunny attempt at humor is both reprehensible and something that ABC should apologize for, without delay,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Partial List Of Organizations That Have Signed On to be there tomorrow:
Local 372/DC-37, Latin Leadership Institute, LACLAA, Casa De Las Americas & the South Bronx Community Congress.

    I have been surfing on-line more than three hours as of late, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.
