Letter: Look underneath a person’s skin

Get past the race hustlers, the ill-educated and anti-American loons screaming “Capitalism!” who keep banging racial war drums. Simply view the situation in terms of (dare I say it?) logic. The retired pediatric brain surgeon (black) Dr. Benjamin Carson provided appropriate context — “When as a brain surgeon you pull back the skin on someone’s skull to operate on the brain, you realize that skin is just the cover on your body, it has nothing to do with who you are as a person.” Even more succinctly, read 1 Samuel 16:7: “For man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”  All the rest is merely non-reasoning group-think mentality.
