We found [Jerry Sternberg's] Mountain Xpress commentary ["The Lessons of History"] interesting and important. Everyone knows the disgrace of Negro segregation, but somehow we are still surprised at times in reading the U.S.A.'s history of oppression.
Few people may be aware of anti-Semitism in the South. Sternberg's examples sounded true in a town with respected Jewish merchants. He reported that Jews did not want to speak out and challenge the WASPs in power.
As a gay couple, we try to have the nerve and strength to speak up, challenging prejudice
