Mailbag: Is there a problem in LCF?

I was just made aware of a disturbing incident that happened in LCF on Feb. 21. A member of our community was walking his dog at around 9 p.m. on El Vago when an SUV driver slowed down, rolled down his window and yelled, “I hate n*****s!”

This ignorant, and stupid act of hatred has no place in our community or our country. This incident, combined with the allegations of racial taunts made toward a visiting basketball team by LCHS fans, makes me question whether our community — however wonderful we believe it to be — has a problem that should not be ignored.
