Racism needs to be untaught in America

Regarding the May 5 column “The Sterling Dilemma” by Steve Lunetta, racism and bigotry in this country have been prevalent since the America’s inception.

Discrimination is a way of life in America to some
Americans. All the conversations and debates are not going to change that narrow-minded thinking.

This racism and bigotry are embedded in the lives of these racists from the minute they are born, taught at home and handed down from one generation to another.

I’ve heard this hatefulness and narrow-minded way of thinking all of my life, and it seems to be getting worse since President Obama was elected president of the United States.

Obama being a black man and becoming the president has galled borderline racist and bigots.

These people don’t even know why they are racist and bigots. They were told and taught this hatefulness all their lives.

If you have every heard from someone, “don’t get me wrong; some of my best friend are Jewish or black,” is a facade to cover up their racism and ignorance.

Talk about and debate racism and bigotry is all well and good, but this sensitive matter has to be untaught and flushed out at the core,

As the The Anti Defamation League puts it, stop the defamation of people and help to secure justice and fair treatment to all.
