Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for. I want to be clear on some of the points you raise. Were you called racist because you said the business was being bought by a Korean couple? Other than saying you were a racist in what way did she state that accusation was reflected in how the business was conducted?
