ABC apologize to Puerto Rican community for broadcast racist remarks

Dear ABC executives,

I am offended that in the year 2012 you do not have higher standards or cultural awareness. I just signed a petition to demanding the following from ABC: 

(1) an apology to the Puerto Rican community for the racist and degrading remarks broadcast on the pilot episode of Work It on January 3, 2012.

(2) as one of the biggest television networks in the US stop using negative stereotypes against Puerto Ricans.

(3) create a cultural sensitivity and tolerance educational program for ABC producers, writers and staff. 

We look forward to hearing from you regarding this very important issue.
