We Are All Immigrants

(02/04/2001)

Bob,

The letter from Mr. Gutermuth in Georgia contains some unneccesary derogatory remarks. He complains about people not speaking English. In fact, these people probably perform jobs that this guy wouldn't do.

The Hur Herald should have no room for racism and xenophobia. Calhoun is a place that needs positive thinking, without including hurtful ideas.

Please be aware of how words shape thinking. In the future if you could please not print remarks derogatory towards immigrants, that would be great. WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS IN THE US...
