Diversity training won’t keep city safe

Letter to the Editor

Here is my latest letter to the editor which was published in the Sept. 21, 2009 edition of the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader.

Diversity training won’t keep city safe
Recently, Wilkes-Barre NAACP President Ron Felton wrote that there “needs to be a serious effort to bring comprehensive diversity training to the City of Wilkes-Barre Police Department.”

In essence, he wants white police officers to coddle criminals if they happen to be black or Hispanic. Does anyone in their right mind think that will make our communities any safer?

The black and Hispanic violent crime rate is out of control. Does the NAACP try to address this problem with practical solutions? No, it would rather sling around unfounded accusations of “racism.”

Keystone United has stood up to the antics of the NAACP in the past and will continue to do so.
