Letter: Ignoring minorities

Your Republican columnist William Hamilton recently wrote a column regarding white skin-color discrimination. Billy ignores the millions of minorities who are discriminated against every election day by voter ID laws. The former chair of the Republican party in Florida admitted that ID laws have nothing to do with voter fraud and everything to do with voter suppression. Billy likes to refer to President Obama as Mr. Obama, because Billy is in the same birther clown car as Trump. Billy used to use President Obama’s middle name in his column, until Sen. John McCain pointed out in the 2008 election that such use was bigoted. Billy likes to claim that he marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but produces no evidence. He certainly hasn’t produced a picture of himself with the great civil rights icon. Billy likes to post his resume at the end of his column. If you do a little research you’ll find his credentials don’t amount to a hill of beans. So much for the sage of sheepdog hill.
