Mr. Namowicz' admonishment to ...


Mr. Namowicz' admonishment to overlook any offence attendant to the black jockey statue stationed on a yard on Main Street, in the interests of minding one's own business, sadly ignores the fact that the promotion of racially and other respectful principles is everyone's business. The fact that a perpetrator or witness to boorish or offensive conduct is oblivious to the impact on others is no reason for other citizens to tolerate or remain silent about the matter. Unfortunately, our history is such that millions have been subjected to insensitive slights or injustices based on race or gender while oblivious clods and others stood silently by. Let your conscience be your guide, but never be bullied into silence when you have a right to your opinion. Gliding cluelessly through life is no formula for happiness. I still hope the lawn jockey will be removed, perhaps by new homeowners...
