Letters to the Editor: Our Veterans Deserve Gratitude

As we celebrate Veteran’s Day, I would like to give a heartfelt “Thank You” to all veterans who ever served our country with honor. African Americans have served in every war that this county has ever fought in. Despite being discriminated against at home and abroad, African Americans have served with great valor and distinction. We should never feel that this is not our country because the blood of our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and our forefathers runs just as deep as anyone’s when it comes to the defense of America.

Prejudiced Uber Drivers No Surprise

I am not one bit surprised by the study about Blacks and Uber, “Black Uber Customers Wait Longer for Rides, Study Finds,” by Tatyana Hopkins in the November 10, 2016 Washington Informer. You would think with all of the problems Blacks have had in the past with hailing a cab in most urban cities, that the growth of Uber and Lyft would have eliminated such problems. As we see, it hasn’t and to make things even worse, there are a lot of Blacks and other minorities driving for these companies. This study just shows that we as a people still have a long way to go when it comes to how we treat each other and how others treat us.
