Letter: Racist tweets to Obama are a sad commentary

Racist tweets to Obama are a sad commentary

At church on Sunday, I could not help but be touched by the stirring rendition of “America the Beautiful” at the close of Mass. At the same time, I am aware there is also something ugly stirring in America.

I was saddened and disgusted by the report of racist tweets sent to President Obama. I can’t help but wonder if the people who sent these messages to the president of the United States consider themselves to be good Christians and patriotic citizens. This country has elected a black president, but we still have a long way to go.
