Re: “Sweepstakes cafes: coming to your low-income neighborhood

First off, My estiblishment is NOT in a low income area. I manage an internet cafe in Greenville NC and here's a kicker, NO ONE HAS PUT A GUN TO ANY ONE'S HEAD AND MAKE THEM COME TO PLAY or GAMBLE. ALL CITIZENS ARE OVER 18 and HAVE THE RIGHT TO SPEND THEIR MONEY HOW THEY PLEASE!! Millions of people play NC state lotto. It's all the same. I LOVE MY CUSTOMERS AND THEY LOVE US! SOME PEOPLE WIN, SOME LOOSE, THAT'S LIFE! But our atmosphere is clean, respectful, and lovely. We have teachers, nurses, retirees, and business women and men who come to our establishment and play. WHITE, BLACK, HISPANIC, AND ASIAN! A person can come into my store, spend $20 and possibly walk out with $50. (not bad....not great) OR they can go to Foodlion and buy $20 of lotto tickets and win nothing. So.... its all the same! Not to mention we had THOUSANDS of signatures to pettion closing sweepstakes. When I asked customers why wouldn't they want sweepstakes to close they said, because they wouldn't have anything else to do, and they love coming in and playing because it's relaxing and socially stimulating.
