PrinceRene, and others,

There's nothing racist about Patel comments. Instead of jumping to conclusions, accusing others, and getting on the pc bandwagon just use the Search feature on top of the page and do a search for Patel.

See what you find.

I've read the articles. Yes, there are dishonest East Indians just like there are dishonest whites, blacks, asians and hispanics. Taking these cases where East Indian store owners have ripped people off and playing them up for laughs paints a broad and unflattering brush over an entire community. For every East Indian store owner who has ripped someone off, how many other store owners of different ethnicities have ripped people off too but we never hear any jokes about them do we?

    Good grief, The story here was about scamming store owners and it has turned into name calling again.  Noise gate backed up his point and a couple of you people start calling racist, what a crock.  Have you nothing better to do?   GIVE IT A REST ALREADY.

      and what would Noise gate's point be? He thought the store owner's name was Patel and guess what? As a few other posters have already pointed out, the store owner was NOT named Patel. So much for stereotypes.....

          This is one of the reasons why I like subscriptions. Apart from the convenience, it is very secure. Small prizes are credited to the subscription account, for larger prizes a check is mailed to subscriber. And, for those luck enough to win big prize or jackpot, the lottery will contact the subscriber.

          We all get a lot out of lotteries!

            sounds good. They should have that here. I'm guessing the lottery brain trust were too busy bringing us Monopoly Millionaire Club.

                  Noise Gate just let it go. It's not cool to stereotype. We all do it from time to time but when called out about it, the correct response is to say "yeah, I'm wrong on this one" and life goes on.

                    I took issue with being called a racist.If l was l could simply have said " Yeah, whatever". Since you mentioned the fact that we ALL guilty of stereotyping people from time to time however" attempting to cast the first stone" when others do it is hypocritical.That's the point l was attempting to make, but it goes over some heads.

                      So you're saying your point is so complex it's going over my head? Nice try of deflecting but that doesn't work on me.

                      Do you still stand by your statement, "Since the article does not name of the owner who did the deed, l could not help thinking of a name we all familiar with...yeah that one : Patel."?

                      A quick google search reveals everything we need to know about the situation:

                      So let me summarize what has happened in this thread so far.

                      An article is posted about the dishonest store owner of Rd's Delicatessen & Market in Melrose, Massachusetts ripping off one of their customers.

                      Based on past news articles of store owners who happen to have the East Indian surname of Patel, you erroneously jump to the hasty conclusion that in this particular case, the perpetrator must also be named Patel because if Patels have ripped people off in the past, in your mind there must be some necessary connection between Patel and store owner ripping people off.

                      But as you can see you are wrong. The store owner is not named Patel. There is no necessary connection between Patel and store owner ripping people off. It was all in your prejudiced mind and instead of owning up to it and promising not to stereotype people in the future, you just dig the hole that much deeper.

                      Yes, I understand there are articles here on Lottery Post of store owners with the surname of Patel ripping off their customers but the horrible practice of ripping off customers is not limited to East Indian store owners. You do understand any store owner, black, white, asian, hispanic, etc, may have the potential to be dishonest and yet the article is posted and where does your mind automatically place blame?

                          Disabuse yourself of the notion that the frequency of my posts relegate me to the back of the room or lessen my claim that you were WRONG!  I did not call you a racist, in fact I pointed out your prejudice... Which was quite clear.  And, once again you believe yourself somewhat witty with the name calling... Please grow up, and learn what it means to have a civil discourse where you may not agree with the views of others but can still be polite.

                            See what you find.

                            I read noise-gates posts/comments, and they are laced with prejudice; I did not have to jump to any conclusions.  This isn't about being politically correct, this is about humility.  One person (Rene) pointed out that it was prejudice to ASSUME and JUMP to CONCLUSIONS that the store owner was a "Patel."  And, instead of acknowledging that fault noise-gates response was something attune to :  "YOU MUST BE A PATEL, or BE RELATED TO ONE."

                            That sir, is ridiculous!  This line of thinking is akin to admonishing all black-americans who own a gun as being guilty of some larger illegal crime.  When they very well could be law abiding citizens, who lawfully own their firearm.

                            This line of thinking also shows that you or noise-gate have never been openly affected by prejudice, and you seem to be very apathetic to the plight and voices being raised here. 

                            It doesn't matter if one or forty "Patel's," owning lottery stores have been caught scamming, they do not ALL do it, they are not ALL bad... And, to assume so... Makes you PREJUDICE!

                              DC player- Frankly l don't give a rat's $^//&** what you think. Both you and the other character turned this subject into what it was not intended to be. 

                              You cannot tell me that both of you have never displayed stereotypically behavior,  you darn well know that if you said that you have not- you would be liars. So just stop this Knights in Shinning Armor behavior, your behavioral traits are not divine, you don't walk on water & don't be so thin skinned -  as someone in the movies once said " don't get attached to things".

                              As for the re-mark on 3 posts in 4 years, that was said in jest, if you took offense to that statement- have another beer.
