Letters to the Editor

Hitesman letter: Offensive words

I understand that the word “squaw” that Indians find offensive is the same as the English word used against Ivanka Trump.

I am an 87-year-old Democratic woman. I find obscenity against anyone, especially women, abhorrent. For another woman to use it is especially despicable.

If someone, younger than me, starts a march, I’ll bring my cane and walk. We could call the march, Bastente es bastente — Enough is enough.

Eileen Hitesman, Meridian
