Sorry if this has been posted already. Spend the worst day of my life yesterday finding out that one of my dogs, and my best friend, Legend was very sick with cancer and last night we had to put him to sleep. We are devastated. This was the dog we named our farm, Legend’s Creek Farm after so he had a special place in our hearts.
Last night at the vet I received a booking request from our first African American guest who was a total sweetheart in her email but we had to decline obviously because we were both bawling our eyes out and need the weekend to spend some time alone.
Our profile specifically says that racism and bigotry will not be tolerated on our property. It is the opposite of who we are and we don’t want racist guests. Anyway, we declined her request and explained why, and it was her first booking on Air and had no reviews at all but all our guests with no reviews have been lovely so if it were different circumstances we would have accepted. Then I woke up this morning to the email from Air saying “Discrimination and Belonging: What it Means for You” and I freaked out that maybe the booking request was a test of some sort, or if this is all just coincidental.
What do you all think? Was this a test or a coincidence? Of course we are signing the commitment on November 1st. I think Air will be a much better place without racist people using it. I can’t tolerate racism and I think all companies should address racism this way.
