The right diversity

Posted: June 04, 2007

TO LETTER-writer Todd Cohen:

I hear your complaints about your new minority neighbors.

As an American of African descent, I truly understand, crystal clearly, your feelings and experience. However, the people that I suggested to move into communities, such as the Northeast, to cure the "white-flightitis" are the ones with a mentality like Tiger Woods, Larry Elder, Michael Nutter, the late Fred Rogers, Mother Teresa, and even syndicated radio host Delilah.

These individuals would respect the properties, neighbors (like you and I), and themselves. If you don't believe diversity would work, check out communities such as San Diego, Phoenix or even Stockton, Calif.
