Boycott his shop! I know I'll never buy from a person who knowingly participates in the inhumane slaughter of sentient beings for what? Trinkets? Elephants are magnificent animals and for them to be killed for human greed and vanity is unconscionable.

Did that make you feel better to insert a racist remark? Seriously though, if you're gonna spread hate, at least be accurate. I guess you are too stupid to know that the stereotype of Asians is that they are smart. And what does driving have anything to do with this crime? Just another ignorant troll saying "stuff like that."

Yeah let's boycott him for buying something from a slaughtered animal. While we are on the subject then none of you making remarks should be eating meat, wearing anything that is made from animal skin, and so on. What a bunch of f..ing hypocrites.

It's his culture! It's his culture! You can't challenge his culture! That's racist/neo-Colonialist! We hear that as a defense all the time. Especially from our friends in Claremont.

Asians are overachievers academically, but you must admit they are a hazard to everyone on the road.

Perhaps the people that protest on the corner of Indian Hill Blvd. every Friday should take their signs and protest in front of this guys doughnut shop instead.

Then let him deal with public shame and humiliation, the public will let him know we do not approve of buying ivory at the expense of the extinction of a species.
