Letters to the editor, February 20

Racial harmony

Sometimes, I find it difficult to fathom that just about 50 years ago, this nation was divided in race. Blacks and Whites were still segregated in many aspects of life.

Every February, Americans are reminded how far this country has come in terms of racial equality through Black History Month.

Having said that, America still has some way to go to achieve true racial harmony.

As a Muslim American, I believe that God has made us into different tribes in order to recognize and respect one another. This is exactly what the Quran stated 1,400 years ago. I pray America progresses even further in the next 50 years to strengthen racial harmony.
