Why would you give a writer with the views given by Jonetta Rose Barras a vehicle to air them publicly (“The Great White Hopeful,” 4/5)? Maybe she represents the views of the paper—which, after today, I may never read. Whatever the reason, I find articles like this where every other word is either “white” or “black” show the little progress that we have made in the race arena.

Thanks from those who view people without color.
