RE: Jewelry & Racism
By Chris Elliott
September 28, 2007
I experienced a sinking feeling when reading Mr. Jethani's letter.
I've written many letters to Sitnews re the jewelry store petition
but never mentioned racism because I believe the issue is an
unintended side effect of the initiative. Mr. Jethani's letter
explained in detail how many of the owners of the downtown jewelry
stores feel and why. It was an eye opener.
Whether racism is a factor
in the initiative is not as relevant as the fact that Mr. Jethani
and others like him believe it is. In addition to the reasons
I have stated previously, I will be voting NO on Proposition
1 to tell Mr. Jethani that we welcome him with open arms. Please
