Make Sure You Vote

Dear Editor;

Now is the time to stand together against the unjust, cast down upon us by the Goliath’s at the higher level of the housing authority. The mayor as you know, in my opinion, handpicks these racists, who think of us as nothing more than their plantation slaves.

We have no one other than ourselves to blame for being absent at the voting polls. Did you know that the housing authority now has a community service rule that requires you leisure time? This is another form of manipulation that they use as they do the residents council to cover up their illegal violations and criminal behavior.

So, I’m asking all "Negroes" regardless of what color you are, from white to dark, to stand with us positive blacks, Latinos, and whites. To put an end to this madness particularly, the unfair ruling of all, which is that it’s a privilege and not a right to live in public housing. How dare they when it’s our tax dollars that keep public housing operating and our votes that keep them in office.

Thank God, in America, we have the right to vote.

P.S. Racism is nothing more than an onipulation away from capitalization, dollars and cents, power and control.

J.T. HOLLAND
