Opinion: The color zeroPOSTED: 03/25/14 8:36 PM
Elsewhere on this page, Rosemary Didier has a beef with the white men in the judicial system. It is an opinion one is free to have, but this newspaper does not embrace it. Judging people by the color of their skin is like judging a book by its cover. You never know what is inside before you take a look.
We are not here to defend any judge because they capable enough to take care of themselves. We like to make clear where we stand as a newspaper on many issues, including the black versus white question.
Rosemary Didier denounces all white people (at least those in the judicial system), suggesting that if only these people had a different skin color, all would be well.
We disagree wholeheartedly. There are only two kinds of people in the world – good ones and bad ones. They could be black, white, yellow, green or any other color of the rainbow. What matters in the end is not your color, or where you are from, but what you do. Actions speak louder than words – or skin color. This is why we prefer the color zero to the black and white thing.
