But, I couldn't let this use of code words close to home (where my child lives) go uncontested.
Sunny California Vacation Rentals owner Robert Reyes said the council is overdoing it with a complete ban, and he would have rather seen regulations address the problems.When things didn't go the way he wanted, Robert Reyes chose to blame black people. I'm not going to use code words. I'm going to come right out and call him on his racism and race-baiting.
“There are 225 vacation rental properties in Manhattan Beach, but only 58 are currently licensed and properly registered. Two- to three-day rentals are the problem,” Reyes said. “People coming from the inner city are bringing their buddies, who want to party. There is a right way and a wrong way to do this (short-term renting).”
