We’re better than this
This past Thursday, a United Methodist pastor flew from California to Little Rock to speak to over 1,300 youth at Veritas, an Arkansas Conference event held Feb. 24-26. He is a personal friend, a United States citizen, and happens to be a Korean American.
His American Airlines flight from Dallas was met by security personnel who stood at the end of the jetway while passengers exited, most of whom were Caucasian. He was the only one asked to provide identification.
I am offended by what happened to him, embarrassed for Little Rock, and deeply concerned about the growing climate of intolerance seemingly promoted by our government. We are better than this. Far better. It is time we start acting like it. GARY MUELLER
