Many don’t want to face the truth on racial issues
In response to the letter, “Let’s promote the truth, celebrate common ground,” I applaud the writer’s desire to live in truth and harmony. What I have a problem with is America’s distortion of the truth. Let’s face it; the truth has never been told.
Which is the reason “Selma” came to light, via the media. I appreciate the writer calling Martin Luther King and his colleagues patriots in a time when they had no rights. Men who had served this country during war time, but still could not vote, or live in a certain neighborhood, or earn a fair wage.
And, no, “Selma” should not have taken a misstep in its portrayal of President Lyndon Johnson, but what about the continued portrayal of young African-American men in America today?
I am appalled every day about the racial undertones toward our current president. Where is the political correctness? There certainly has been a lot of propaganda about him and his family. Many have been so disrespectful to our commander in chief.
So I say, yes, let’s promote truth and share facts, because the truth should and does matter.
