LTE: A Response To ‘The Only Race We Should Be Talking About Is NASCAR’

To the Editor:


I have many issues with the letter you published on Nov. 5th, but I will contain myself to one.

The authors seem to imply that people who like NASCAR are racist and stupid. I take offense to that. I have friends who like NASCAR who are neither racist nor stupid. In fact, they even have a sense of decency! Unlike the authors of the article, who call for “conversation” and then immaturely mock those who critique them as being like Trump.

The letter just further erodes the credibility of an “anti-racist movement” that appears to thrive on revenge instead of forgiveness, on false narrative instead of truth, and on mockery instead of argument.
