Racism, Sexism, and uninstalling Mahalo

The search for a new Mahalo host has shown me a side of Jason Calacanis that I can't live with. The young women that he's picked to audition-and those he gives an occasional break make up a group that is far from diverse. His comment about an audition where many people chose not to share their views was that they didn't seem as though English was their first language. I'm not following him on Twitter. I'm not using Mahalo's toolbar. I'm grateful that Veronica was able to leave.
