David Lauderdale’s inspiring, gracious, touching piece, “10 things we can be thankful for...” (Nov 22) reminds us how gratitude, kindness, and empathy contribute so much to life. David himself is a Lowcountry treasure.
In contrast, Leonard Pitts comes across as a sniveling, whining, complaining, hating “one-trick pony” (that would be racism — he doesn’t seem to exhibit any other thoughts).
As I’ve complained before, and as several other readers commented in recent letters, Pitts contributes nothing. I have previously been told Pitts represents a segment of your readership. Really? Surely management could find another African American journalist or opinion writer who could offer a more balanced view of issues of concern to minorities.
Please work to present a broader view of important issues. Pitts’ columns are racist and inflammatory. How can that help the elimination of racism?
