Letter to the Editor: Stereotypes in column are astounding

Andy Schmookler’s column on Aug. 12 telling us how we must think regarding the hate group Black Lives Matter must have a response!

First, any group calling for violence and death against police officers is a hate group! The hate group Black Lives Matter regularly does this!

Second, the “talk” that Schmookler says black parents have with their sons about respecting the police is a talk all parents (black and white) should have with their children! Andy, it’s called good parenting!

The stereotypes put forth in Schmookler’s column about whites and blacks was astounding! It is perhaps the most “racist” thing I have seen in this paper!
