Racism Knows No Race Boundries

Claire Dempster got caught with a big fat foot in her mouth making comments that a position on the Osceola County Commission should be filled by an Anglo and not a Hispanic. Sad to see racism so easily coming to someone running for a government position.

Beulah Farquharson from the Buenaventura Lakes Community Association makes a comment in the article I think we all should heed, that the position needs to go to someone based on the ability to do a job, not their ethnicity or race and who’s interest they represent (outside of the entire district of course.)

But people from all sides of the color coin in government have been guilty of this, so let’s not fool ourselves into thinking this is just another case of whitey keeping the brown folk down. Latin leaders have made plenty of similar statements with no shame and we all know how Daisy feels. Racism is a human problem and we all need to look at is as both victims AND perpetrators.

    Is there any way one can recieve the latest study by Orlando on the crime problem… we plan a 440 million aid package to fight the crime which seems originating in the Minority neighborhoods with Drugs and Thugs.
