Cowardly racism needs to be defeated

Re. Mr. Releford’s letter, fortunately the KKK has always been a minority and may they become more so.

I’m concerned about the less extreme and unorganized old Southern racism that hides under tea party and mainline Republican ideology to condemn President Obama just because he’s half African black.

In the ’60s, these people would have voted Democratic. Such cowardly racism like that of the KKK needs to be defeated in every public forum, Nov. 6 especially.

America deserves better than bigoted intolerance and coldhearted indifference to the poor and true middle class.
