A hate mail against Filipino-American community based in American Canyon California has already gone viral in social networking site such as Facebook. The hate mail described the Filipinos as “filthy” and “unwanted.”
In a Facebook post by Fil-Am Derek Valencia, he reported the matter to the police, but the officer told him that another person have also reported the same concern to them.
Based upon the letter, it came from California Department of Consumer Affairs Board of Barbering & Cosmetology and addressed to a certain Maria Aida Ignacio Brandes.
The letter warns Brandes about her alleged expired cosmetology licence but later on it ended up firing insult against Filipino community living in the area. The letter was signed by Concerned American Canyon Neighbors.

In addition, the American Canyon Filipino community as filthy as it is. [Illegible] unwanted as it is…… doesn’t need to bring additional unwarranted/unlicensed practices which assists in bringing down the already downward spiraling property values in our area.
We are attempting to have our community a law abiding one, without having yet another gang of Filipino scum such as yourself and married daughters who have attempted to assimilate into this once clean non-Filipino dominated area in American Canyon (Napa Junction) which includes those of your female offspring who have aligned themselves with CAUCASION husbands to assist in ensuring their half-breed children have “straight noses” in order to be accepted in non-Filipino society.
