I would like commend the Tribune-Review editorial staff for providing an equal-opportunity forum so readers can express their opinions and beliefs, even the uninformed and racist like Russell Fenton ( “Why so mad, Artie Burns?” ).
Fenton asks, “Are you mad at how many black men keep committing crimes that are likely the cause of racial profiling?” Does he think the only people in America who commit crimes are black men and that police only arrest black men? All the normal people in this country know this is not true and is an appalling, disgusting view for any person who calls himself or herself a true American. America is for all Americans, no matter their race, sex, religion or orientation; that’s what makes this country so great.
So get a grip and realize it’s 2018. This country needs to move forward, not backward, so if it’s good enough for the great Robert De Niro, it’s good enough for me. I would like to apologize to the people of Fairfield for you.
