A great letter by Sam Shain over the weekend (Dec. 14) about racism, “Column shows some people think racism doesn’t exist.”

He hit the nail on the head. Racism is here, always has been, always will be. Thanks to the young mothers and fathers down through the years it has greatly improved. They raised their children properly.

There are people who feel their lives are wasted; they feel lost and full of hate. But they’ve got to have someone lower than they are. And that’s just one of the many reasons for racism.
