To the Editor:

I read a news article earlier today in which a local resident had posted on Facebook that a cotton display at Hobby Lobby was “offensive.” I cannot believe that this has made national news. I find her comments to be completely and utterly ridiculous, as do a lot of people out there — at least based on the responses to Daniell Rider’s Facebook post.

When I read this story, I thought to myself, “Is this the same person who was wearing the ‘Very Black, Very Proud’ T-shirt on my flight from Killeen to Dallas yesterday?”

This T-shirt is offensive.

What if I had been wearing a “Very White, Very Proud” T-shirt? Would it have been considered racist?

You bet it would, and would have drawn all kinds of comments in the terminal.

There are too many complaining about the racial divide in our country. Right here are two perfect examples of the problem.

We are all one race, human.

People need to stop being part of the problem and be part of the solution.
