21. Is the bigotry and racism in this thread intended or inadvertent?
Who's to say that these Indians are not American citizens?

And just what is the problem with them owning and operating a business - any business? The fact that it is a family affair is the way family-owned businesses have worked for time immemorial. Mom, dad, gramps, gramma, the little kiddies. All pitched in. Keeps costs down. Is it different because non-white Americans own these businesses? What if they were Hispanic? Or African-American? Would that be better? And if they are foreign nationals, again, so what. If you want to run a hotel, buy a hotel or a franchise and get to work. If you don't, that's fine (there's no way I would want to run a hotel), but don't begrudge others for wanting to do so. If they run it well, all the better. If they run it badly, they'll fail, which is as it should be, regardless of color.
