Colour bind 

To the editor,

It is made amply clear by the last two Coast cover stories ("Inside the Square," March 1 and "Harbour Solutions stinks," March 8) that racism is a prominent issue here in Halifax. My question is why do white people and black people here hate each other so much? Why aren't East Indians, Chinese or Sri Lankans welcome here?

I am just curious as I did not grow up here, yet, anybody who denies that fact is deaf, dumb and blind. Sure, there are exceptions...but they only serve to stymie criticism and curb open and frank discussion.

Where do this city and province go from here? I'll tell you...nowhere. And that is why this is such a racist city and province. Nothing equals nothing. You've done nothing and the title "racist city" is your legacy!

All the Keith's in the world can't drown that feeling: it's shame.
