Knee-jerk reactions

To the editor:

Let’s go all the way: destroy all monuments, etc. that pay homage to any of the great individuals who risked their lives to form the greatest nation on earth.

Start with the Washington Monument, and please don’t spare the “White” House.

While we’re at it, be sure all individuals whose last names are Washington, Jefferson, et. al. are forced to change their surname to that of the “perfect” human they are searching for.

And let’s not stop in the United States. We must see to the destruction of the great pyramids in Egypt as well as the Great Wall of China — all undertakings that were touched by slavery.

Racism exists today and will exist tomorrow. It is evil. No country has done more to mitigate racism than America.

Let’s not allow anarchy to kill the golden goose that still provides the greatest opportunity for people of all races and religions.
