'Political in Nature'



Ms. Silbory strikes me as being one of the "ashamed to be white crowd" ("Black Lives and Good Faith," June 15). In her reference to the Rodney King riots, she fails to mention Reginald Denny, he was the white truck driver who was pulled from his cab and almost beaten to death by a howling mob. His mistake was being white in a black neighborhood.

As for Ms. Silbory being a crusader for black justice, what's she doing living in just about the most white area in California? Surely she could be better served by moving to Oakland or East Palo Alto!

As for the Black Lives Matter button, it is political, along with "Hands up Don't Shoot," and slogans of a similar nature.
