[Racism seems to be deeply embedded in our nation’s psyche.  The article cited below reflects the effects of it on our criminal justice system.  The new Republican hot button attack on Latino immigrants catches another piece of this abomination.  Our family has imposed parental control on the Lou Dobbs racial profanities — what a way to make his living!. We need more honest media sources of public information to expose such uglies. Ed Kent]
