I received this marketing email from Verizon:

I was born in the U.S. served two U.S. Presidents and I received this insulting marketing message soliticiing SpanishTV "FROM YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN". That ploy is a presumptive marketing bull **bleep** assumption on your part nothwithstanding my Spanish surname and ethnic background.
I will cancel my subscription to Verizon if I continue to get this uninvited insulting emails from Verizon. I will share this with my Congressman and the Federal Communications Commission as an American Citizen making surname assumptions that one is from a foreign country. How about French and African names? Are you sending the same message to U.S. Citizens with those surnames? You are specifically discriminating U.S. Citizens because of Spanish surnames.
