We just saw your front page story on the gentleman who blamed Mexicans for the fact that he walks the streets of Payson with a ‘work wanted' sign. Your reporter never thought to ask him about the page-plus of help wanted ads you carry in every issue. Not one of them says ‘Mexicans only.'
We have a wonderful son-in-law of Mexican-Native American heritage. He and his brother have had to put up with racial slurs all their lives, but the situation is getting worse in today's wicked political climate.
It all starts with blaming a particular race for society's problems. The next step is a tolerance of insults and slurs. Perhaps we need to be reminded of where this path leads?
And maybe the Roundup could set a good example.
Stuart and Christine Lindsay, Payson
