    Three months after Aeromexico, Mexico’s largest airline, had to apologize for racist casting in one of their TV ads, the company is being investigated for alleged discrimination against six indigenous men who assert they were treated unfairly by an employee of Aeromexico in the first week of November.

    Aeromexico has issued a press statement asserting that they had not discriminated against the young men. However, the investigation into the incident has begun. Meanwhile, there are a few facts that are not in dispute.

    On November 6, six young indigenous men from Oaxaca – Severiano Lopez, Macelo Perez, Gilberto Ruiz, Jose Rojas, Benedicto Eras and Florentino Bautista – went to board an Aeromexico flight bound for Hermosillo, Sonora.
