Por: RAMON MERCEDES Fecha: marzo 30, 2017 En: Nueva York

*** begin quote ***

NUEVA YORK.- Quisqueyanos de diferentes estratos sociales rechazaron que la empresaria María Khury fuera escogida como presidenta del Desfile Dominicano de Manhattan.

Durante un sondeo al azar entre 117 criollos, tomando en cuenta su perfil, acento al hablar, sin importar sexo, afiliación política, edad, nivel académico, color, religión, ni región de donde procede del país, se le preguntó en los vecindarios de Washington Heights e Inwood, por donde transitan miles de dominicanos, lo siguiente:

¿Usted cómo dominicano(a) está de acuerdo que la empresaria María Khury la escogieran como presidenta del Desfile Dominicano de Manhattan?.

*** end quote ***

[JR: Evidently it’s not all sweetness and light hearted fun. Argh!]
