Fire Condo Manager for Allegedly Banning Indian Students Because of Their Smell

Target: Tommy Gomez, Property Manager of Palmetto Place in the Philippines

Goal: Fire the managers who allegedly banned Indian students for racist reasons.

A group of medical students from India were reportedly supposed to rent a condo but when they arrived an official from the Property Management Office reportedly banned them “because of their smell.” Photos posted to social media show the students standing outside the condo, luggage in tow. Left with nowhere to stay, the students reportedly had to spend the night in the rain and hungry.

Racism should never be tolerated, and it’s disgusting that a professional treated customers with such extreme racism. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that the staff member or staff members be fired immediately, if guilty of this racial discrimination.


Dear Mr. Gomez,

A racist manager at Palmetto Place reportedly banned a group of medical students from India “because they smell.” Photos show the students, with their luggage, standing outside the condo with nowhere else to go. According to reports, they were forced to spend the night hungry and in the rain.

This is a violation of these peoples’ human rights, and the blatant display of racism and discrimination reflects badly on the entire business. We, the undersigned, demand that the person or people responsible for this be fired immediately.

    That’s just plain and cruel. We have got to learn to get along with each other and more to the point, learn to accept and embrace one another.

  2. Firstly, I must say that I don’t know any Tommy Gomez manager of Palmetto Condominium (I’m a neighbour living here since 2013).
    I already warned the board and the management a few times about irregularities and handling the general meetings of the neighbors. I’ve presented three or four written complaints about different issues (not only to the board, but to the contractor of the condominium, DMCI, when they where the majority in the board). The first one in December 2014. Still waiting for a reply. The main responsible of the irregularities now is the president of the board. One month ago, I was insulted and pushed out of the managment office by him for saying all this. I wrote a complaint to the board about the abuse of power oft he president and nobody has apologized or replied to my complaint. For me, living at Palmetto Condominium is like living in the “IV Reich”. On behalf of many neighbors I want to apologize to the group of Indian students for this shameful treatment and I ask them to address any action directly to president and management of the corporation and not to all the neighbors. Many of them (not me, of course) made the mistake of voting the wrong president, but they shouldn’t pay for one’s mistkes.

    If in fact everything listed is correct then this is a shameful situation and the manager must be dismissed. I hesitate to sign since I wonder if we are getting the complete and truthful story. If they are complaining to the neighbors are they in the apartment now? How many rented the apartment and how many showed up to live in it? I know in some apartment blocks 1 or 2 students will rent a place and the next thing 12 people are living in the apartment, sleeping wall to wall on the living room floor. Just checking to make sure I understand all the facts before I sign.
