I have to thank the editor of this paper, and Shawn Vestal, for sharing the words of EWU President David May on racism (“EWU president: There’s no middle on racism,” March 24).
“Thank you for calling me racist?” you say.
Yes, thank you. Because it makes me stop for a second. Just a second — when I am seeing the news or hearing it and that sly, racist reaction POPS! into my mind.
It gives me a second to think. Just think.
So thank you too, Mr. May, EWU president, for having the courage to say it after you thought it.
