James Whichard: Saunders’ column hurtful

August 20, 2013 

Hateful Saunders

How could you put the Aug. 6 Barry Saunders column “Ignoring underdog rights” in your paper? No wonder we have a race problem in this country. Hate speech and race speech never did anyone any good.

This column was way over the line. The N&O clearly supports hurtful and hateful speech from Saunders, but not from everyone.
