Letters to the Editor for May 22, 2009

Students: stand up to the critics

To the editor:

The late American tennis player Arthur Ashe died of AIDS, contracted from a contaminated blood transfusion. He stated in his autobiography that the greatest trial of his life was not that he was dying because of someone’s incompetence, but rather that he had been born black in America.

This may seem an odd thing to point out in Baker County, Oregon, except for the conversation on tolerance currently under way. You young folks who are directly involved sure know how to stir things up. I’m proud of you for demonstrating such courage and character.
