I was very disturbed to read the stories concerning what I perceive to have happened at the Cormorant.
Please do not let this story get swept aside because as some people tend to forget at times, ignorance, bias and racism are not just a one way street. As we all know in this day and age – or should know by now – we all bleed red, we all have feelings and should be respected no matter what our sexual orientation, color or ethnic background.
And to the management of the Cormorant: Please do not let this incident discourage you enough to close down your lovely establishment. As a former resident of St. Croix, I still know that the majority of Crucians and "Continentals" alike are really a very tolerant lot.
