Yesterday, Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas went on record to publicly condemn the viral "Sara Hates Laredo" YouTube video rant.


The Mayor called the video "offensive" and "racist," and makes a great case to how the young women in the video criticized bilingual citizens who live in Laredo. He also said, "As long as I am mayor of this city, I am going to defend this city and I am going to promote this city, because Laredo es número uno."

The fulle interview can be seen here: link.

In the meantime, the version of the "Why Sara Hates Laredo" YouTube video we embedded yesterday has gotten over 80,000 views as of this morning. (UPDATE: the original video was taken down, but another video is up now.)
