So­ci­ety

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

The jux­ta­po­si­tion on June 27 of Leonard Pitts Jr.’s col­umn on the new Jim Crow move­ment, Al­berta Phillips’ col­umn about Austin’s un­der­priv­i­leged youth and Glenn Beck ad­vis­ing se­niors of a Chris­tian col­lege to “shoot to kill” is an ex­am­ple of why our so­ci­ety has be­come more vi­o­lent and life has be­come cheaper.

Sadly, in the name of God, the law and the govern­ment, peo­ple mean noth­ing. This is what Amer­ica and Texas has be­come. Shan­non Ha­mann
