Why ‘Futuramas’ booth rental fees are the biggest insult to Asian Americans
The Asian American Association of New York is calling for the state to enact a bill that would allow booth rental companies to charge Asian Americans a minimum of $50 to $100 a booth to rent them a booth.
The bill is scheduled to be introduced this week in the state Assembly.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Asian American Advocates of New Jersey’s Kristin Chan said the bill is a way for Asian Americans to “keep our voices heard” and “make our voices known.”
The bill would allow a booth rental company to charge a minimum fee of $100 to $250 to rent a booth for a maximum of six months, and would allow the company to deny a booth registration if the owner is found to be in violation of the law.
According to the legislation, the minimum fee for a booth is $50.
The AHANJ is also calling on the state Department of Consumer Affairs to take action to investigate and revoke the license of two Asian American companies, a Japanese Japanese and a Vietnamese, that have refused to rent booths to Asian American vendors.
The companies, which include the Japanese Japanese Cultural Center and the Vietnamese Vietnamese Cultural Center, are based in Long Beach and New York City respectively.
They are also registered as a “business” under the state’s business licensing rules.
The booths are rented by Asian American individuals and groups to rent in a variety of locations including coffee shops, bars, restaurants and other places.
The Asian American lobby groups said they are worried that a bill like this will not stop Asian Americans from renting booths.
In a statement to Breitbart News Chan said:”This is not a solution, but a tactic.
This bill seeks to prevent Asian Americans and Asian Americans alone from having booths.”
In the same statement, AHANJPNJ also said that the bill violates the federal Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discriminatory practices in housing.
Chan, AHANA’s executive director, said the AHAN has called on the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to investigate the companies and revoke their licenses.
She said AHAN will also work with the State of New Hampshire to make sure that the laws are enforced and the businesses are held accountable for the discriminatory practices.
“We will work with HUD and other agencies to ensure that these companies are held to account,” Chan said.
The state has been criticized by Asian Americans for not enforcing the Fair Housing act against these companies.
“It is a blatant attack on our community,” said Lee Chang, an Asian American business owner and founder of the Asian American Entrepreneurs of New England Network, in a statement.
Chang, who has owned Asian American businesses in Long Island City, Queens and the Bronx for 20 years, said that he was concerned about the potential impact of the legislation.
He said the legislation is a “political stunt” and an insult to all Asian Americans.
“I am saddened that the AHANA is seeking to hurt the Asian community, but more concerned about their ability to continue their businesses in New York and across the country,” Chang said.
Chong said that his company has had several clients refuse to rent booth spaces in the past.
He said that AHANNJ is “looking forward to the opportunity to work with this legislation and hopefully it will help bring more Asian Americans into the marketplace.”
Chan said that in the future AHAN would like to see Asian American women and men have more opportunities to rent their booths.
“What we have witnessed in our community is that people are willing to go out of their way to support us,” Chan continued.
“We are a diverse community and we want to ensure we continue to make the largest contribution to our communities in a way that is equitable and does not negatively impact our communities.”
Chan also pointed out that Asian Americans are also in demand for many of the same things as Asian Americans in the country.
Chan said the Asian Americans have a diverse set of experiences and have many of our friends and family members working in the industries that they work in.
She added that AHANA will continue to work closely with AHAN to make their businesses more successful.
“Our goal is to ensure all Asian American entrepreneurs have a level playing field and are able to succeed in this economy,” Chan concluded.
“It is time to make a change in the law.”
