Letter to the Editor: OLD RACIAL PLAYBOOK REMAINS

Editor, Times-Advocate:

Re: “Council rejects $515K in traffic safety funding

We have seven major exits off the freeways into Escondido that lead to a handful of major traffic arteries within the city. Surely the council could have applied strings to their Yes vote to assure a scientific and statistical probability approach was applied to a traffic safety policy. 

Smearing our multi ethnic EPD with insinuations of racial bias? Are you kidding me? Sam is gone, Clay is gone, two Chiefs of Police are gone, we have a Democrat majority, yet the old racial playbook remains without the foils to blame. No wonder we have a “reputation,” creating that image empowers some and maligns others.
