I think this bank is a valued addition to Mountain View and I wish it success. But, I hope this bank opens its doors to ALL residents and business owners of MV. A white, black or Hispanic member of our community should feel just as welcomed there as an Indian. I would hate to think of the community backlash if a Caucasian were to open a bank that "focuses" just on whites or a bank that "targets" just Hispanics for their business.
