Re "Protests turn violent in St. Louis suburb" (Business, Aug. 13): A white man is beat into a coma in a predominantly black community by three black youths, and there is silence by the black community, as this couldn't have been a hate crime. A black man in New York selling illegal cigarettes dies in a ensuing confrontation with law enforcement after disobeying officers orders, now that is racism?

There is always going to be racism and bigotry but to let that control one's person will just act as an anchor and not let one progress in life.

And that anchor is the siege Nathan refuses to acknowledge.
