As I was flipping through my paper recently I found Minnie Noble’s letter (Aug. 7, There’s something here for everyone), and frankly I found it a little disturbing.
First off, it’s true that we should feel sorry for the little children having to leave their country as far away as El Salvador who are then loaded on top of freight trains that can kill a little child who falls off. Then they enter a country that can’t afford the cost of trying to house them and will be returned to their own country – which really doesn’t want them in the first place.
This has nothing to do with race, color or creed, but it does have to do with letting our own children do without trying to take care of someone else’s responsibility. That is regardless of them being of South American or even European descent, if Europe was to do the same thing.
We are in a sensitive time when our country has been threatened by a group of people who like to cut heads off.
The second point is I feel Minnie Noble has some hate issues against whites with blues eyes. She needs to get over it. We are a nation of one group that should stand together, not apart. It always gets damaged when racial issues continually are brought to the front and it looks like prejudicial issues are alive and well in America, something that won’t be missed when it finally goes from all races, not just one.
