The letter written by Leslie J. Pollard Sr., Ph.D. (“Race motivates attacks,” Nov. 20) is woefully misguided. The assumptions are incredulous.
The Augusta Chronicle publishes commentary from liberals and conservatives. I could quote many anti-conservative articles published by The Chronicle with which I disagree, but would serve no purpose concerning this letter.
President Obama ran a campaign that focused on class and color, avoiding the real issues confronting our country such as entitlements and the debt crisis. Therefore, anyone who opposed Obama was really a racist, or so says Leslie Pollard. Balderdash!
There are many African-American conservatives I would love to have as president of the United States – Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Walter Williams, Herman Cain and Colin Powell, just to name a few. It is conservatism vs. liberalism, not African-American vs. white.
The letter states, “President Obama, as head of the free world, is so out of place it is unimaginable.” I totally agree!
