‘Far too slowly’

Dear Editor:

It was gratifying to see the turnout at the Black Lives Matter protest and march on June 20 as well as the publisher’s sincere apology for the offensive cartoon in the Advertiser’s previous edition.

However we shouldn’t feel too proud of our community just yet given the response of a few onlookers to the march – cat calls and middle fingers as well as two early 20s males with T-shirts saying “It’s OK to be white”.

Change is coming slowly; far too slowly for most.

Peter Varty,
