Don't judge town on racist's idiocy, says reader

Dear editor, I'm writing in response to the letter in the July 14, Independent & Free Press, Resident outraged by `racist' incident. I'm hoping you will print this letter as I feel its important. This was verbal and physical assault-- simple as that. I hope this woman and her family do not judge all residents of Halton Hills by this coward's behaviour, it was racism pure and simple. I am personally offended to hear that someone was treated that way simply because her skin happened to be darker than mine. The gentleman who stood up and made his physical presence known should be commended, while I can guarantee he didn't do it to win favourable opinions, knowing there are men out there like that (who will stand up for others) warms my heart. Please let this family know that Halton Hills is a warm and safe place-- save for the occasional idiot (which you will find everywhere). Lisa Komadowski, Acton
