LETTER: Discrimination police a waste of time, money

LETTER: Discrimination police a waste of time, money

  • Updated

The story in a recent Daily Progress about the Charlottesville City Council actually considering a "discrimination police force" was an unbelievable indication of how some of America has become so twisted. Instead of creating a staff to look for and arrest someone judged to be discriminators, spend the $250,000 in a more loving, trusting and enlightening way by hiring and bringing in notable speakers to speak at the downtown mall tent/auditorium.

Start with Dr. Thomas Sowell, an accomplished and brilliant man who overcame childhood diversity by declining to whine and feel perpetually sorry for himself, but instead set goals and worked hard to achieve them, all the while trusting in American ideals.

His is a wonderful American story that should be emulated versus shouting to everyone, all the time, "It’s not fair!" Then spend about $100 on the book “Doctor Zhivago” and give it to the Council members. Socialism, communism, dictatorships and police states do not work; they are all a degradation of God’s plan for man.
