Baseless Assumptions

Sep 19, 2018

To the Editor:

Seriously?! George E. Snyder III is judging people’s commitment to patriotism in Loveladies based on the presence of a 25-foot flagpole in their front yards (“Few Flags Flying” 9/12)? That is just as valid as thinking you know someone or the content of their character based only on the one thing you choose to see, like the color of one’s skin or the shape of one’s eyes.

Obviously, the flag means something to Mr. Snyder. I would suggest that if he wants to know if the flag means the same thing to people in Loveladies, he should ask us instead of making baseless assumptions. Once he has had enough conversations with real people, he may feel a little less bothered.
