Letter: No reason for Pitts to be so upset about Pepsi ad

No reason for Pitts to be so upset about Pepsi ad

Just when I thought Leonard Pitts’ opinions couldn’t get any more bizarre, I read his commentary on the latest Pepsi commercial. Somehow, with some magical leaps of reason, he has concluded that offering a can of soda to a police officer undermines, no actually insults, the Black Lives Matter movement. It must be a very sad world that he inhabits if a sign saying “join the conversation” in a TV commercial equates to seeing “black sons and daughters killed without consequence.” Pitts would be well advised to actually “join the conversation” and leave his matches at home.
