I think you misunderstood his point.

Lopez's stores are to specifically cater to Hispanics. They don't hide that fact, they endorse and advertise it.

He means that, if somebody opened a store that Advertised, and Endorsed the fact that they want to specifically cater to "Whites" or Caucasians, (sp?), they would be called racist, which is true, and a huge double standard.

It's just like the issue with equal rights between men and women. Women want to have all rights be equal 100%, which I agree with, however some women also want special treatment becuase they are just that, a woman.
You can't have it both ways, a double standard should not exist. This is the year 2013, there should be no special treatment for anybody.

If it is racist to look at it one way, then it must be racist to look at it the other way either, and I agree with that.

She wants to get hispanics to buy from her. If I had a store and I advertised that I am catering to people with white skin, and that would be my only target audience, of COURSE I would be called racist.
