We Admire Brigette Budier’s Courage

March 27, 2009

Dear Nica Times:

In regards to your article “Disco’s Door Policy Sparks Race Debate: Brigette Budier has become the Nicaraguan Rosa Parks” (NT, Feb. 27), we lived in Bluefields in 1986-‘87, and he attitude on the Pacific coast toward the people of the Caribbean coast was certainly evident then.

It’s sad, sad, sad to realize it still continues.

Where is the true Revolution? Thanks to Brigette Budier’s courage, truly Rosa Parks is honored.
