Los Perros

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by Sasha and Andrea on November 9, 2006

I have just returned from 3 months travelling and volunteering in Cusco, Peru and became very familiar with many of the restaurants and bars in the city. During my stay it was brought to my attention that several establishments such as Los Perros Bar and Bar 7 knowingly participate in discrimination and racism against Peruvian customers.

There have been many cases of bouncers blatantly turning away Peruvians who have darker skin and rounder faces. They tell these customers that there is a private party going on and proceed to allow other clients to enter. Or they simply say that the Peruvian in question cannot enter the bar or club because he or she is Peruvian. Ironically the owners, the employees, and the bouncers themselves are all Peruvians. In other cases Peruvians are allowed to enter the bar or club, are seated with their friends having a drink, and they are asked to leave without explanation.

In my opinion it is extremely difficult to combat this kind of racism,
especially when the owners of the businesses are also notorious drug dealers. It seems that the best solution is to avoid supporting these businesses.

Thank you for your time and if you have any other questions please
feel free to ask.
