Racism is alive & well world wide, not just in the United States

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
My, my, my, On Friday I read the letter from Bernadette Loesch and found it sounded very reassuring that she says she studies all sides ever issue she writes about. I can certainly respect anyone who does that but I do have just a small problem with Ms. Loesch. It was just a few short weeks ago that she lectured readers to research issues on her list of 27, I believe it was, magazines, networks and movies, from Michael Moore to MSNBC, to gather their information. In fact every one was a far left source that makes no attempt to present anything like fair and balanced reporting. So my problem is how do I reconcile her letter of Friday with her proven history of left wing zealotry?
Saying racism is alive and well in the U.S. is true but what she leaves out is that it is alive and well world wide. It is not limited to any one group, nation, race, religion, agenda or ethnicity. Just the other day 16 year old Malala Yousafzai, of Pakistan, celebrated her birthday giving a speech at the U.N. Malala was shot in the head two years ago by the Taliban for promoting education for girls. In our national news we see Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton beating the racial drums over the Travon Martin killing and local progressives stirring the anti Christian hate agenda. I know these may not be exactly racial but prejudice and bigotry are all part of the hate stew simmering on the fire. So I suggest you look into the dark corners of your own side of the street Bernie.
About guns and crimes it may be of interest to readers that the national rates have been steadily declining every year since 1990. We are indeed inundated by the media with gun killing stories though the anti-gun media tends to sensationalize only the most egregious or ones with racial implications. They ignore the FACT that the greatest number of shootings and killings are by criminal gangs in our major cities almost always those controleed, long term, by Democrats. These same Democrats choose to play the false fix it game proposing gun laws that target legal gun owners rather then the criminals. Face it Ms. Loesch your party needs chaos, crime and poverty to exist or they wouldn't so there is zero chance anything gets better with progressives in charge.
P.S. Happy birthday to the bravest girl in the world, Malala Yousafzai.
