LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Reflecting on The Times’ legacy
Question of the Day
In response to that first issue, I wrote a letter to the paper expressing the hope that the paper would provide opportunities for black and other conservative journalists of color. I said in my letter that this should be the case, particularly since The Washington Times initially was owned by a person who was a native of Korea. Although I do not share the political perspective of the paper, I thought journalists of color ought to have opportunities for expression in The Washington Times.
I appreciated the fact that on the second or third day of publication, an editorial responded to my letter. I have a copy of that letter somewhere in my files today. I believe that our nation, like an airplane, needs a right wing and a left wing to fly.
Since Day One, The Times has been consistent in sharing its perspective and in giving space to a racial and cultural diversity of writers. Thank you.
