A Key West boat captain’s racist Facebook rant has cost the parasailing company he helps run its business location.

“I should call them what they are, [a racial slur in all capital letters],” Larry Bistricky wrote in a Facebook comment last week, replying to a Key West woman who had challenged a previous comment he made about people begging for money in the streets.

In another comment thread, Bistricky wrote, “The only thing a black person in this county has perfected is collecting that welfare check.”

Bistricky works for Parawest Parasailing, which was kicked out of a spot at the coveted A & B Marina at the Key West Historic Seaport on Thursday.

The slip that once belonged to Parawest Parasailng was empty on July 17, 2020, two days after a boat captain who works for the company posted comments on Facebook disparaging Black people. The marina terminated the company’s lease the next day.
