LETTER: Inclusivity

To the Editor:

Question: When white folks are no longer the majority—soon, I’m told—would they/we not hope to be included in the civic discussion?

The inclusivity resolution proposed for adoption by city council—with no force of law—has recieved some surprising (disappointing) push back from a few council members and pretenders. They argue that the resolution is a step towards “sanctuary city” status. Not true. They also cast resolution sponsor RJ Navarro as a leftist radical, so politics would seem to be at the heart of their argument.

As a 50-year Keizer resident, I urge council to adopt the resolution and take one more very small step towards welcoming the future reality.
