With respect to your publisher, writers and photographers, I have a love-hate relationship with your newspaper. I say this mainly because of the Business Exchange column in The Washington Informer written by William Reed. Over the past few years he has written so many negative articles in reference to the Democratic Party and about President Obama and his policies, I was wondering if the ultra-right fanatics were paying him to write.  Now that Donald Trump is in office, I will be checking to see what type of articles Mr. Reed will write. Well, lo and behold, in this week’s Informer, Mr. Reed writes about business opportunities in the Sudan. If I were to have the opportunity to ask Mr. Reed a question, it would be, “Did these opportunities just open up since the election, and why didn’t you write about them months ago instead of using your column to trash President Obama?”

Informer Has What Community Youth Needs

I just love reading your newspaper, it really is a wonderful publication. Week after week, your staff writes informative articles that are very important to us in the African-American community. I really liked the article in the Black History Month section of this week’s newspaper by Stacy M. Brown, “Ex-UN Ambassador: Jobs, Not Racism, Is America’s Biggest Problem.” Former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young says things in that interview that make so much sense. I just wish our young people would read these types of articles and take them to heart.
