A Small Victory

AR News Exclusive, Nov. 12

Sirs,

Not to pat myself on the back, but a local radio station had an ad from a minority assisting group. The ad stated “Capitalism was for the select few, now it is open to you.” I called the radio station to complain especially since the owners are regular guys (I know one) who took a risk 6 years ago and borrowed a lot of money to get their three station radio empire going. The general manager politely told me he would look into the ad and check with the ads sponsors.

Sure enough, the ad was changed to “Let us introduce you to minorities who have made it.” It is amazing want one telephone call and a listening third party can do.

Name Withheld
