    I am a white american, I have thought about putting in my flyers, that I am white, american and english speaking. Does anyone else do this, or would anyone be offended by those words in flyers. I know some customers would prefer to have an engish speaking american to deal with than what they may have now. :usflag:

    Yes, It may help in some very small circles, but over all I believe it would not be good.
    And to be honest I think the general thinking is that the lasy a$$ white boy will not be as good as someone else.
    Just produce good work and the rest will be OK. No need to down grade someone else, Just my feelings.

    instead of just saying your white, say American owned and operated, but if your gonna have a buch of mexicans working for you then leave out the operating part.

    thanks for the input so far. I wasn't thinking of putting white on the flyer as I know that might offend some, but was more or less thinking of putting english speaking and american.
