Vil­lages res­i­dent hurt by racist in­ci­dent

Orlando Sentinel - - Opinion -

I am em­bar­rassed that our com­mu­nity, The Vil­lages, has been por­trayed as a racist, hate­ful place (“Trump retweets ‘white power’ shoutout,” June 29).

Not every­one in the Vil­lages shares th­ese racist be­liefs. I am em­bar­rassed that this coun­try sees the place I call home in this light.

I am ashamed to call th­ese peo­ple neigh­bors and I am even more em­bar­rassed to see our pres­i­dent em­brace and praise th­ese be­liefs.

Kathy Strope The Vil­lages
