Dear Editor:

Forced bussing during the Civil Rights Movement was warranted to help the fight for equality, and rightfully so. However, equality has been achieved, and it’s time for children to go to the school nearest their neighborhood. After all, it’s only fair to the parents and the pupils.

Whoever believes in racial equality hasn’t been met shouldn’t talk to Reverend Al Sharpton, Reverend Jeremiah Wright or Reverend Joseph Lowery. They should speak to the black governors and mayors in America, as well as Barack Obama, the first black American president who was voted in by the majority of the white vote.

After all, we had affirmative action and many other opportunities given to minorities. When the so-called “Reverend” Jesse Jackson called New York “hymie town,” the law did not call it hate or the “h” word. In fact, he was allowed to run fro president. Only in America could this happen.

Let the City Board of Education be fair to all people and stop the favoritism for certain groups when it is not necessary any more. Stop the bus and give some equality back to us.

Sincerely,

Vinnie Branigan
