In a letter on Nov. 24, Kurt Maas reacted to several topics that could be displayed on posters (‘People overreacting to supremacist posters’).
A sign printed with “it is OK to be white” is thought to be supremacist by some, but a sign printed with “it is OK to be black” is thought to be sticking up for one’s race. It can’t be both ways.
A sign printed with “it is OK to be a heterosexual male” is valid, regardless of how you look at it, because, without heterosexual males, we would not be born.
Other poster topics mentioned and objected to were those of our history — capitalism, eating meat and going fishing. One not mentioned was freedom of speech.
We should not be afraid to express the positive events of our history. We should be objective with events as they occur today: Point out the positive of both sides of an issue, weigh it against both negative sides, and come to a valid solution.
I challenge Maas or anyone else to state the positive points of both sides of these issues (capitalism, eating meat, going fishing, building the wall, voting Republican sometimes, and being pro-Trump) and then weigh them against the negative of both sides. Let readers judge for themselves.
