Several minority-owned restaurants on City Island in the Bronx, N.Y., have received racist hate mail and flyers.
As of Monday, Nov. 7, the New York Police Department (NYPD) has not announced any arrests, per CBS News, though a source told the news outlet that the Hate Crimes Unit had identified a suspect.
Darryl Lelie, the owner of Seafood Kingz 2, said he found disturbing racial stereotypes in the form of a cartoon last week in his mailbox, Spectrum NY1 reported. The owner said he would file a formal complaint with local police and organize a rally with elected officials to speak out against hate.
“You get mad about it but that’s only creating more of a fire and desire in me to press on and be successful,” Lelie told the outlet.
Lelie opened his family-oriented seafood restaurant in the Bronx neighborhood in February, making it the first Black-owned restaurant in the area. His 21-year-old son, Dalvin, serves as the head chef, offering a variety of seafood options such as king crab legs, fried lobster tails, fish, shrimp, and more.
The Seafood Kingz owner, who has been in the restaurant industry for two decades, is not surprised by the hate mail. He told NY1 that his older customers would share stories on how City Island “used to be when they were growing up.”
“You couldn’t stay on this island past six o’clock or you would be confronted with racial tension or something,” he continued.
Caliente’s on City Island Avenue, another Black-owned business, was allegedly targeted, and Jewish-owned Archie’s Tap & Table reportedly contacted the NYPD with a complaint.
Little Frida’s Eatery, a family-owned restaurant that serves Mexican cuisine, also received hate mail within less than two months of opening. The owner, Nazareth Perez, said he received a white envelope with a stamp from New Jersey. It contained a flyer and what appeared to be a political cartoon with racist wording at the top.
“It was a little bit disappointing. It’s 2022 and no one should be making fun,” Perez said, per CBS News.

Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to sentence disgraced Theranos CE0 Elizabeth Holmes to 15 years in prison, arguing she deserves a lengthy prison term because her massive scheme duped investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars by falsely convincing them her company had developed a revolutionary blood testing device. Calling the case “one of the most substantial white collar offenses Silicon Valley or any other District has seen,” prosecutors vehemently rejected defense attorneys' characterization that Holmes had been unfairly victimized, in part by media coverage. Holmes is set to appear for sentencing on Nov. 18 in federal court in San Jose, California, nearly a year after she was convicted of three felony counts of wire fraud and one felony count of conspiracy to commit fraud.
Justin SullivanSen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is among 130 people who wrote letters of support for Elizabeth Holmes, the convicted founder of disgraced blood testing company Theranos. Lawyers for Holmes, who is pregnant with her second child, submitted the letters in an attempt to help her avoid jail time when she is sentenced next week for an epic fraud.“I write to advocate for a fair and just sentence for Elizabeth Holmes,” Booker said in his letter, which was submitted to the court on Thursday night

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes should spend 15 years in prison and pay $800 million in restitution to investors defrauded in the blood testing start-up, U.S. prosecutors recommended late on Friday. The Department of Justice recommendation, made in a court filing, came as Holmes prepares to be sentenced next week. "Considering the extensiveness of Holmes' fraud… the sentencing of 180 months' imprisonment would reflect the seriousness of the offenses, provide for just punishment for the offenses, and deter Holmes and others," the prosecutors said.
What a mess.
Democratic Party adviser Kurt Bardella landed in hot water for implying during an MSNBC interview that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R, CO-3) might join OnlyFans should she not be reelected. The South Korean-born DNC adviser spoke with “The ReidOut” show host Joy Reid about the midterm race between Boebert and her Democratic opponent Adam Frisch. “I guess it might be a gain for OnlyFans,” Bardella said of the possible defeat for the right-wing Colorado congresswoman.
Elizabeth Holmes urged a U.S. judge not to send her to prison, as the founder of Theranos Inc prepares to be sentenced next week for defrauding investors in the blood testing startup. In a Thursday night court filing, lawyers for Holmes asked that she receive 18 months of home confinement, followed by community service, at her Nov. 18 sentencing before U.S. District Judge Edward Davila in San Jose, California. The lawyers said prison time was unnecessary to deter future wrongdoing, calling Holmes, 38, a "singular human with much to give" and not the robotic, emotionless "caricature" seen by the public and media.

Disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes is casting herself as a Silicon Valley scapegoat who overcame an abusive relationship to become a loving mother in an effort to avoid a lengthy prison sentence for duping investors in her failed blood-testing company. In an 82-page document filed late Thursday, Holmes' lawyers tried to persuade U.S. District Judge Edward Davila that sending Holmes to prison is unnecessary, partly because she has already been stigmatized by intense media coverage that has turned her into a “caricature to be mocked and vilified." If Davila decides she send her to prison, Holmes' lawyers argued she should be sentenced to no more than 18 months — a fraction of the maximum of 20 years she is facing after being convicted on four felony counts of investor fraud and conspiracy earlier this year.
