What Jim Turner wrote in his recent letter to the News-Sentinel is absolutely true and any disgust should be directed at those who cannot accept the fact that Barack Obama is a black man who was born in the United States and was elected in 2008 to be the 44th President of our great country.
Believe me, what Mr. Turner was referring to as being disgusting is, well, downright disgusting. This is the 21st century and most of us who have lived through all of the racial turmoil in the late 20th century thought racial turmoil was mostly a thing of the past. I have witnessed what Mr. Turner referred to, and just shake my head and think, “Will this bigotry never end?”
We will always have political disagreements, and that is why we have elections. What is a person’s skin color should not matter. It doesn’t seem to matter in the sports world. Why should it matter anywhere else?
