Aftermath of Fire at Jordan Downs

Was I mistaken, or did I see yet another group seeking segregated housing? ("Segregated Housing Sought at Jordan Downs," Metro, Sept. 10). Here we go again: Not all African-Americans are arsonists and murderers. The one neighbor who, reportedly, tried to help the Zuniga family, and who might be the only individual able to provide an eyewitness account, is black.

I had hoped we were done with this madness. There is already segregated housing for individuals who commit unspeakable crimes like burning people alive in their homes. It's called prison.
