Letter: Racism, sexism and bullying have no place here

Posted

Time out! Enough is enough. 

A free exchange and debate of ideas is healthy and good for democracy. But now the line has been crossed. 

The hateful letter written by Zachary Cooper, who we can only assume is a member of the “Bristol County Concerned Citizens” (BCCC), given the people he chose to direct his aggression, has gone too far, and the Bristol Phoenix should not have printed such egregious personal attacks on its opinion page.

Racism, sexism and bullying have no place in our public discourse. This disparaging and bigoted abuse of our community members must end … now! Bristol deserves better than this.
