Bridging D.C.'s election divide
By Jill M. Shea
Many thanks to Colbert I. King for his Sept. 25 column, “The District, beyond the politics of race.” Certainly racial politics are a factor in any District election, but to crown race as the central factor is to fall for a red herring and sell the residents of the District short. Among those who supported Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and presumptive mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray, you will find people of good will and of all races.
Mr. King’s observations provided a much-needed rebuttal to the vitriolic speech that has been spewed since Election Day, and they served to give the District’s residents a little credit for thoughtful, nuanced voting.
