I would like to respond to Jennifer Linne's letter, "Who is the real racist here?," published Aug. 9. She states that purposeful legislation has help white people in Baltimore. I question whether she has researched the demographics of Baltimore.
The population is 65% black. The city council is 66 % black. The last dozen mayors including today's mayor is black. Over 80% of the police and fire departments are black. Over 70% of schools are black.
She seems to be so wrapped up in other peoples intolerance she is ignoring her own intolerance (i.e. racism). Since she is white I will use her own words as written in her editorial: "White people do not get to decide what is racist."
What is happening in Baltimore is their own doing and it has nothing to do with race.
