Weel my friend is not hard to see the conection. I not just talking shi#$%T here. It is real. And trust me it has nothing to do with been brown. In the contrary it has to do with money and power. Do you still belive that the big fish is a mexican or latino. You are out of your mind. The big fish is so big that he does not let him self been know.Can you please state the ties to corrupt politicians and organized crime for ALL of these companies? I'm sure most of us would like to know. Or are you simply misinterpreting "latino-owned-business " with criminal-activity because of racism/prejudice/jealousy/envy /all of the above?
Perhaps you feel Latino's can't achieve financial success without being corrupt in some way or another because they:
a) are brown, therefore, dirty, therefore no one would shake hands with them (business deals require this a lot)
b) are uneducated/can't read/speak English
c) are usually catholic (there, they must be corrupt!)
d) spend too much time cooking good food and teaching their daugters about marriage and familiy values; who would have time running a business living this 1950's lifestyle?
c) work way too damn hard; no real business owner works! They all micro-manage their (inherited) businesses from a yawt sitting on a sea front.
Oh well, here's a consideration: maybe Latino businesses (like most of those mentioned) got to where they are through opportunity and plain old fashioned hard work? What country do you live in quique?
All this companies had ties with reynoso brother, and mister Vignali. Look it up. Vignaly is the biggest landlord in the city ( not the county city) of Los Angeles. He is worth more that $400 million dollars. And does he appear on any hispanic publication (such as Hispanic Business). NO he does not. As a matter of fact neither Cardenas, Northgate, El mexicano, or Vallarta. Why it is that if they are so visible Hispanic business does not interview them. They keep a low profile. They have ties to politician such as, lee baca, The cardenal all the way up to the president of the us. If you do not belive me , see how and who got Carlos Vignali out of jail. You will be amaze. Besides, if you are brown and proud, you will know as a fact the this country is divided. Mexican mingle mostly with mexican, white people mingle mostly with white people and so on. now would it not make sense that the same happens in the drug trade. Or do you really belive that white people go to mexican barrios to buy drugs....Give me a break the big fish lives in this country, you only hear of people not longer needed. DRUGS ARE A GREAT BUSINESS and until they are there will be people taking advantage. Cardenas, VAllarta and all those companies are only a medium for those big fish, they are not in any way the main or big fish. They are disposable as Reynoso brother was.
