Clever Racism

To the Editor:

According to the Caledonian Record (7/29/21 LTE section), it is swarthy big city Whites, not big city Blacks (my mistake for seeing the giant depicted in the 7/26/21 Opinion page cartoon as Black), who are coming for all of us small vulnerable Whites. This is a clever cartoon in a racist sort of way and I suppose there is some legal cover in the Caledonian’s interpretation. How many swarthy big city people can the rural White north tolerate anyway?

The obvious caricature--an oversized thug--represents the fact that officials are ignoring the major issue while going after minor issues for optics sake.
