TranscriptLetters: Black, White Frustrations

To the Dolly Egyptian:
In response to tho article written by Frank Collin concerning the behavior at Mr.Koehl's speech, I find It truly amazing how the Caucasian students who wrote expressing their distaste with the porformance of several Black students, failed to express their distaste for the many white students who also heckled.
I find It also intriguing that if one was not at Mr. Koehl's speech, he would be erroneously led to believe that all BIack students were heckling, and that all the hecklers were Black.
Although I do not condone my black brothers who heckled, I do not apologize for them. I have yet to nee anyone apologize for a system which has heckled, maimed, raped and killed for almost 400 years.
Mr Collin referred to the gap being widened between Black and White, Well, that gap would make the Grand Canyon look like the eye of a needle. This gap was created and porpotuated by the poison of white racism. if you doubt my word read the Warren Commission report. Blacko, rightfully, do not care anymore what whites think of them but what they as Blacks think of themselves. Black men and Black women have found thoir Black pride. White frustration will soon out weigh Black frustration. Even the "white" Bible says, "As ye sow, so shall ye reap." I hate to see what 400 years of sowing will reap.
