Currently we have two students from China who through @homestayin.com have bundled their lodging at DragonflyHill Urban Farm, with ESL lessons. In preparation of the lessons, Dragonfly Team Member, educator, Emma Rosenthal came across this map. How racist is this? No L.A. neighborhoods east of the river and only Leimert Park and Exposition Park, south of the 10 Freeway?Imagine the uproar if Airbnb’s map looked like this? This is the same Discover Los Angeles that featured this ad campaign: Everyone’s Welcome, to attract more tourists to a more diverse, Trump free L.A.
This map ignores the Watts Towers, Mariachi Plaza, El Mercado, University of Southern California, Cal State Los Angeles, The entire San Gabriel Valley except Pasadena, but does include beach cities that are not part of the City of Los Angeles.
