Re my letter of March 22, “Double taxation”:
Someone took the liberty of editing out the second half of a sentence that was very, very pertinent to my letter. The sentence was:
“And it’s about an issue that too many white parents in private schools wish not to discuss; this includes the majority of religious representatives; Race.”
I’m not sure why you removed this but to deny it is disingenuous. Not honest! When someone expresses an opinion, it’s just that, an opinion — and one expects that the reader will determine the validity of such opinion. It is not to be censored.
Thank you for printing the letter. I hope your editors will refrain from such editing in the future. Peace
Editor’s note: The Queens Chronicle, like any newspaper, reserves the right to edit letters for length, style and content. Here the sentence in question is printed exactly as written. See last week’s letter, or any past letter, in the archives at qchron.com.
