Letter of the Day

Denouncing the name-callers

  • Print

I find it ironic that the people who are writing in and commenting that Morris is full of bigots, racists and homophobes are guilty of the same name-calling they're accusing us of (Letters, April 4).

They don't know me, therefore they don't know what I think. I have never understood how anyone can express hate toward someone because of what they are and not who they are. Morris is full of people like that.

We support new businesses when they come to town; we rally around those in need who we know (and even those we don't) in our community if they need help, whether that be financial or otherwise, and the owners of Pots N Hands have received an overwhelming amount of support from this community.

Winnipeg has homophobes, bigots, racists, murderers and a whole host of other unsavoury characters, but is there a mass exodus from the city because people assume that all who live there have those traits? No, and why? Because those people represent a minuscule fraction of the population of that city.

Please, when you're making your comments, remember that those responsible for the ignorant and disparaging remarks are in the minority.
