Victoria, Texas is a town about 80 miles west of Houston.

Local Hispanic leaders there, in opposition to pending Immigration Legislation,
boycotted all Caucasian owned businesses in the Victoria area this weekend as a demonstration of their economic impact on the community.

The boycott was declared a success by the Hispanic community, noting that revenue in Caucasian owned businesses was down by 19%.

Business owners declared the boycott a success as well, pointing out that
shoplifting was reduced by 77%.

Shoppers reported they could actually hear English being spoken throughout the stores for the first time in recent memory...

And customers paid with real money, not government cards.

Actually, no. I have received this as an email a few times from people who believed it to be true.
