    I gotta say…this as an example of "Segregation in the Agricutural Industry" is weak. Hispanics who work as agricultural workers do not want to spend their money in a "white" restaurant. They usually bring their own food which is homemade and cuturally famiiar. The vineyard workers I know here in California have coffee and pan first thing in the morning and eat the largest portion of a meal during a break at 10AM. If we just stay to the substance of the video and interview then I would say that it lacks the evidence to support such a sensational title. With comments like "hotel on white sand beach" and "the type of people who shop at Walmart" and "foodies"….maybe that is a tad elitist?

    As a side note…I thought I would watch the entire conversation and clicked on the link after I wrote my previous comment. I could not get past the 2 minute mark. The interview and it's content came off as baseless assumptions which were then extrapolated into the usual spiritual realm of "gratitude, community, and universal love and understanding" .The why can't we all sit down and eat at the same table fantasy. Now unfortunately, I could not force myself to watch the entire video but if this interview with Sanjay Rawal is the "hook" then I am afraid that many who do not find projecting your agenda upon one morning in an agricutural are in South Florida and two different types of restaurants and the jump to Jim Crow believable, just won't find this video as being genuine.
