Just wanted to thank you Gary Kirkland for his well-written and sorely needed article on the subtle and not-so-subtle forms of white racism encountered daily in Gainesville and the rest of the country.

Even today, so few white folks seem able to grasp how insidious and all encompassing these affronts are to obtaining a simple human dignity.

Please keep on presenting such articles year round (not just around Martin Luther King's Day). Maybe next time you'll even find room on the front page, rather than in the Daybreak section, which is not such a subtle distinction.
