I am writing to express my thanks to your publisher, staff, reporters and photographers for the great newspaper that The Informer is. Last week the editorial by Julianne Malveaux and Jesse Jackson were inspiring for all genders and age groups. This week, I was offended by Raynard Jackson’s “Women Do Not Have a Right to Be Heard.” This type of opinion between men and women cause and have caused women so many problems and so much pain throughout the years. Second article by Harry C. Alford, “So Much Hate, So Little Tolerance,” was also like a serious decline of decency for the Informer Opinion Section. One example is encouraging “a mentally challenged individual” to place a formal complaint of sexual assault against nominee Kavanaugh. As a senior female lady born many years ago, this type of writing by my people hurts me deeply. Thank you for your time spent in reading my complaint.

Criminalization of Lynching
I didn’t know that lynching wasn’t a crime! What in the world. Honestly why wouldn’t this be a crime in the United States in 2018? Given all of our history in this country and all we’ve went through this is a slap in the face. However, I’m glad that the nation’s three Black senators proposed this legislation and moving it forward, but I must say it’s a disappointment it took this long.
A Lifesaving App
I’m glad to see that the American Diabetes Association has launched a food app just for people with diabetes. I know for myself and others this will be a lifesaver. The diabetic community has needed something like this for the longest. A breakdown of our food, what’s in it, and if it’s good for diabetics is gold for me and others.
