All about Sweet Home since 1929

Lynching cultural, not political

Editor:

Regarding Rich Rowley’s response (June 17) to my letter of June 10, I was talking about all the people who have and continue to dogmatically and violently deny these (African-American) people.

And who bring their children up to carry on that hate and systematic discrimination.   

Party affiliation never even crossed my mind.

I think people naturally self-segregate, by the way, and always have.  First, probably as a means of survival – hunter-gatherers/farmers, different languages, different appearance.

Today it’s in many varied ways, such as race, income, religion (Mormons, Amish, Muslim...), age (retirement communities).

People naturally go with what they know, what they feel comfortable and secure with. Nothing wrong with that.
