      • To conclude after careful thought and consideration of the situation at hand, my fellow group members and myself feel that personal preferences should not be brought into business matters.

Racial and sexual discrimination is not only illegal worldwide but completely unethical when basing decisions regarding your business. – Yenie Caballero
