Disagree with Your “Statistic”

I am a subscriber and weekly reader of your paper. I am white, but sympathize with much of what you write.

I was surprised by the final sentence of your July 25 - 31 editorial.

"In reality, Whites kill more Whites than Blacks kill Blacks".

It was the last sentence, a placement often used for emphasis and conclusion.

As there are roughly 40 million Blacks in our country, and 200 million Whites, I think that you are misleading your readers with your "statistic".

Maybe it was your assumption that your readers would not know the difference.

I am confident that you know the difference. I think that you owe your readers an apology for underestimating their understanding of "reality".
