Letters: Bear Down on R2 Board

I had intended to stay at the Richland 2 board meeting until the bitter end but, when the Board couldn’t efficiently get through the student transfers, I left. I was already impatient over the lengthy MLK “Inspirational Moment” and the unwillingness of the Board to speak up and be heard throughout the room.

I hope you’ll bear down on the Board members who allege a racial motivation to those ganging up on Amelia McKie. Such a charge is absurd. They should be specific in their reasons. Likewise, [their complaints of] inaccuracies in the media. I say it is just “smoke” on their parts.
