Today I had a hearty laugh over this morning’s editorial. It addressed the misunderstanding between teachers and the management at the Changala’s pumpkin patch. I believe the report that it was all due to poor communication.
What I found entertaining was the editorial perspective on perceived racism. “Charging racism is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater.” No, it is not. When a person falsely causes such a panic it is not because they believe a fire is present and scorching their skin. That is a much better analogy for perceiving racism.
Secondly, you claim the Changala’s have been in business too long to be racist. Again, I have no reason to believe they are racist but your rationale is invalid because the conclusion of your statement is not supported by your premise.
Being a racist does not preclude one from running a successful business.
You say racism has no place in Porterville and I whole heartily agree; neither does theft or assault, but I’m not ready to pretend they don’t exist.
