Re: “Activists say Tom Cotton has issued do-not-call-or-write notice to some constituents. UPDATE. Such letters sent in 'extreme circumstances' says Cotton's office.

He is a tool of the Koch's and the Make America White for the first time group. We are all equal and when elected you are to represent those you agree with and those you don't. MY replies from his office always say, good to hear from you, again. I know it is not. We never agree. I know he's a flip flopper and he cannot be counted on to respect those who do not go along with their plan to maintain the poor to serve the wealthy.

Re: “The Oval outhouse

I understand the hatred and appreciate the voice of those who recognize that it leads to failure for this state and country. The Walton's taking over the LRSD and the Dept. of Education not caring what the citizens of the district want or voted for I can feel more like my mother did when she had to get to the city limit before sundown. My parents and others told us stories of the hatred and segregation they faced and tried to prepare their children for but it is juxtaposed to the Christian religion everyone proclaims. it is easy to see that men wrote it to suit their needs at the time, laws and bibles I mean. it is painful to have to tell my grandchildren similar stories as my parents told us. Hatred of people because of race or the stereotyping of all blacks as being the same in their character and actions or all whites being the same or Mexicans is a deeply held stand and well taught perspective and wrong. The Birther message started the campaign for your president and French and Cotton are partners and seeing them elected and/or re-elected calls for actions like those taken in the past. People are taught European history and from that perspective. Few even recognize that those heroes learned from and lived among people of color around the world and that Egypt meant the continent of Africa and that shall be the fall of the western world, as we know it, that may not be bad. The ruling classes would rather teach the masses how to spend money and when rather than how to save or invest money to become better off economically. The rich tend to come across as morally bankrupt and your commander and chief can show you how to file for that.

Re: “Report: Racial taunts greet visiting basketball team in Harrison

Hatred is taught and spreads with a desire for the elimination of others. This is their home training, prolife, LOL. This is old school and as my 93 year old Mother says, nothing has changed except the prices. Arkansas resembles exactly what this Executive Administration wants, that we shall rise again mentality where the owned will be eliminated or sold for profit. They squeeze bibles of the most recent version while demanding respect for symbols and songs while encouraging hatred and elimination of diversity, the creators obvious choice. Man is not God except in his own mind and Arkansas, Little Rock and Harrison show that separate but equal is the precursor to Get Them Out in order to MAGA. Hatred, that is what is bred in isolation and fanfare. So many people were angry that a Black man was elected president they made the position a reality show in and of its self. We know how it feels to be hated and what a racist is.

Re: “The LR chamber does the public's business. Is it accountable? Blue Hog on the case.

I agree it's as if we are on a plantation, always had from the minority perspective. The tendency of overseers to make decisions for you and tell you how things are going to be and how you should feel about it exudes from the City Board doors. Granite Mountain Neighborhood Resident.

Re: “Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

Sure wish we could have kept our Icon Horace Mann then our Senior High School on the side of town we live in but to the victors go the spoils of determining how everyone lives and what is important. Congratulations to the Little Rock 9 and all those experimental students bussed to schools while the flight went to West Little Rock and continues its re-segregation today. Central sits in a Food Desert surrounded by communities left under and undeveloped where are no jobs without a 2 bus almost hour ride to the other side of town. Congratulations!

Re: “Congressman Steve Womack: Patriot or Sycophant?

Must be one of those 'fine people' in opposition to the removal of communities' monuments even after they make their decision.
