The Truth Has No Color

Dear Editor,

Last week someone wrote a letter complaining about supposed racism. I remember Mr. Schwach writing, a few years back, the truth cannot be racist because it is the truth. If the criminals who are destroying Rockaway are mainly black then that is truth. Sadly in today's world, any criticism of black people is considered racist and any black person who agrees with the criticism is called Uncle Tom. The Wave also prints positive stories on black people but some don't take notice. Those who cry racism should mentor a young black child, show him or her that the way of the gun is a dead end and often fatal road. I could have engaged in guns, dealing drugs, and larceny in my youth, but I knew that would have led me to prison or the grave. Stop glorifying the thug, gangsta and the pimp and stop blaming others for your situation.

JOHN BRENNI
