Juneau's ugly side

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, September 07, 2006

All of Juneau should be disgusted by those who perpetuate hate and intolerance. Don't sit in silence, hoping it will go away; it needs to be confronted and shown that bigotry in all its forms should not be allowed to grow. It is too easy to just turn a blind eye, thinking "I am not a Jew;" it does not concern me. Juneau has always been a diverse community with people from all around the world. Is it so hard to embrace all cultures?

Racism in Juneau is not new, I lived with my share while growing up there. Those who practice these extreme views are limited in their sight. Once we see beyond race, color and religion, we can really appreciate the greater beauty Juneau has to offer.
