Hollywood’s white supremacist street signs a grievous affront to Black America
HOLLYWOOD, FROM 4A Various supporters of the Confederacy – which lost the war more than 150 years ago – will do their best to defeat any ballot measure. They were very boisterous – and some were outright racist – during their appearance at the June 21 commission meeting.
The current street names perpetuate a mindset that some Americans – blacks – are inferior to others – whites – and this is at the heart of what is sometimes generously called “America’s race problem.” Hollywood residents must not allow the Civil War to be lost in their city. They must stand up and put an end to this “shameful episode in their history.”
