Pitts doesn’t motivate
Sun., Aug. 21, 2016
After reading Leonard Pitts’ latest rant on the Aug. 15 Opinion page, I’m left wondering how he thinks he is motivating an end to racism in this country by telling us we need “sustained and purposeful action.”
Where in the entire world can we find a burgeoning group of angels from any race that meets Pitts’ standards? Pitts should tell us what other countries with diverse populations have done a better job in extending rights and opportunities to minority groups. Good luck with that idea.
Truth be told, you can find racism, and all other human vices, everywhere on the planet if you look for it. We would be better off trying to find good in others rather than fomenting resentment from various groups toward each other.
