Look who's in Taotao Tano and what they are saying . . . .

Taotao Tano bills this video as "CNMI TaoTao Tanos Speak Out on Federalization." I didn't hear the word "federalization" even once in there, but no matter, it is interesting and revealing nonetheless.



The fourth speaker (blue shirt, glasses) is Antonio (Tony) Benavente. Mr. Benavente is one of CNMI's biggest labor abusers historically. He was the proprietor of Benavente Security Agency, which brought in a large number of Bangladeshi security guards, collected lots of money from the companies that contracted their services, and did not pay the workers. A huge labor award was entered against Mr. Benavente by CNMI Labor and a court action was subsequently filed for collection, after which Mr. Benavente filed for bankruptcy and never paid a penny.

The final speaker says: "Taotao Tanos are the superior of the island." Textbook definition racism.

Maybe they should view these videos posted by Tamara.

I'm not sure what kind of mind you have to have in order to still think that way. It is sad, for them and our island, to have such devisive attitudes. They do not represent all locals. They do not represent me.
