I am writing in regard to “Dollar Diplomacy” (11/19)….Whoa.
Might I say thank you for standing your ground. There is not a day, or a week, we’ll say, that I am not reminded I am the minority. As a retail worker, I have been robbed, and there is nothing more depressing than letting someone violate your business because you feel too threatened to take a stand.
I felt touched by how loyal the store owners are to a neighborhood that constantly treats them like dirt and revolted by the police force that sent them away after they did nothing more than seek their help. Maybe D.C. should spend more time and money working on improving its police force as opposed to spending millions on a baseball field most everyone is already opposing.
