DEAR EDITOR:

How distressed I was to see Ott and Boyce go along with this ill-advised move to create a Council on “Structural Racism”. Cobb County has been spending decades removing any traces of structural racism. There is no “structural” racism. Why not a council on structural jealousy, ignorance or structural arrogance? Or maybe structural hunger?

This council is a creation of a short-term phenomenon that will last well beyond relevance and be a platform for demagogues and bullies to use to harass and intimidate people and destroy lives. Where there is now harmony, they will sow seeds of resentment and discord. Bad move.
