Letter: Young’s use of term offensive

This is in response to Don Youngs extremely objectionable remarks in Ketchikan referring to Hispanics as “wetbacks.” I am outraged that Peter Goldman, vice chairman of the republican party, states in the Saturday ADN that, “I mean, if you are a member of that ethnic group, if you’re Hispanic, you probably find it offensive.”

 This is to inform Mr. Goldman that we all find the term offensive. Maybe Mr. Goldman should try to drag himself and his party into the 21st century.
