Karen E. Quinones Miller wrote (The Bee Aug. 5, opinion column) about African Americans and the “injustice” of the current system. As an historian, she would know that our system of law has always been the same, for better or worse, depending which side you’re on.
She is a journalist and, by writing half-truths and lies, she shows herself to be extremely biased. One might even call her a racist but is it politically correct to refer to an African American as a racist? Ms. Miller is also a best-selling author. She has written an autobiographical novel entitled “An Angry-Ass Black Woman.” I would suggest she is exactly that.
She is also a community activist. This one really bothers me the most. I would think a community activist would help the very people within the area she works. That means teaching people how to respect themselves, one another, family, community and authority.
To do anything less is a disservice to everyone and to her people, whom she describes as “we” and “us”. After reading her opinion piece, adding “community instigator” to her credentials would be more appropriate.
