I just read Bill Burford's letter to the editor that you recently published in the Royse City Herald-Banner.

He is entitled to his dystopian predictions but all I could see was nothing but thinly veiled racism.

Surely there are better ways to have legitimate debates about the future growth of Royse City other than fear-mongering. That was not something that anyone should have given credence to in my opinion.

Please read this article entitled “Explicit Bigotry and Veiled Racism in the Trump Era” from 2017, it's still relevant, http://bit.ly/2Uwhd56.
