I was disappointed to read on the front page of the News & Record that a High Point City Council member and a local minister have suggested that African American shoppers buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses on Labor Day.
It is hard for me to believe that people who have been victims of the horrible social disease of racism would vent their retribution on innocent business owners in the area simply because they are of a different race.
This is truly Intolerable Racism. And it does not help mend the tear in the social fabric of our area. To quote a Guilford County Commissioner "Racism IS alive and well" , but I think that it is not thought or practiced by the majority of our citizens of all races.
