Christie: Prosecutor post disappoints

Christie Wood (Prosecutor says post poorly worded, not racist): "I am very disappointed in Bryant's post. It was irresponsible as a prosecutor. But I have great confidence Barry McHugh will address it privately. Barry has a proven track record of fairness, and intolerance for any racially motivated crimes. This is clearly not a crime, but extremely poor judgement from a prosecutor with a stellar career.

If BLM made the comments Dix stated, that is irresponsible as well. It appears to be one person speaking out as BLM not the entire movement. But those statements are divisive.

The KC Human RightsTask Force is holding our conference titled "Returning Civility to America's Democracy" on October 13th. It is free and open to the public. Our keynote speaker is Cornell W. Clayton, Director, Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service at WSU. He is the co-editor of the book " Civility and Democracy in America: A Reasonable Understanding ".

We are bringing together political leaders, religious leaders of many faiths, and the media to encourage civil dialogue as we cherish and support the democratic principle of free speech, freedom of thought, and a free press.
