    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.
