"Hollywood Beach Hispanic Invasion" Planned for Sunday

In the wake of the controversy over a city commissioner’s remark that Hollywood Beach has become “overrun” by people from Dade County, one Kendall woman has planned a “Hollywood Beach Hispanic Invasion” for this Sunday.

The event description explains:
If you read the article where Commissioner, Linda Sherwood, District 6 mentions she doesnt what Kendall, Hialeah, Homestead people coming to her beaches, than youre angered like me. Its very clear shes being politicaly correct and she means "Hispanics"...its a PUBLIC beach bitch...really?

If youre from Kendall, Hialeah, Homestead, Miami Lakes, Sweetwater, Westchester, West Miami, Little Havana, NW, SW, Cutler Bay, Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay, Coral Gables, Medley, Ft. Lauderdale, etc, then join me on a beach day at Hollywood PUBLIC Beach!!

Bring your coolers no bigger than 3ft, canopys/umbrellas/tents no bigger than 10X10 and your Hispanic flag representing loudly!!

I hope you can join me, this message of hate in any community must stop....

Whos In??? Feel free to invite anyone...
So far, though, out of 165 people who were invited, just 14 have said they’re interested, and only four have said they’re definitely going. Maybe that’s because, as we previously pointed out, Hollywood is a really long way from Kendall.
