Letter writer should base opinions on facts

Posted 10 July 2020 at 9:19 am


A letter writer to the Orleans Hub from Yates, whom I have never met, and have never talked to, wrote: “Mr. Fine’s delusion is like most of the backwards-thinking liberal wokesters. He believes that all and everything wrong with society lays on the evil white man just by the happenstance that they were born that way.”

Perhaps this writer is projecting what he believes onto me, but in any case this statement is a lie, period. This lie throws into doubt other statements made by this writer. This writer also states that “The police force is more than half, in most cases, minority.”

However, The New York Times reported in April 8, 2015, “Minorities make up a quarter of police forces, according to the 2007 survey, the most recent comprehensive data available.”

The writer obviously has opinions, but they are not based on available facts. This letter writer makes gross generalizations without facts or data and throws about irrelevant opinions.
