To the Editor:
The cartoon printed on the opinion page of the Dec 6, 2018, issue of The Ridgefield Press was demeaning and insulting on multiple levels. The Press should issue an apology. First, it is insensitive to Native Americans for obvious reasons. Furthermore, it equates townspeople’s reactions to healthy start times opponents with racist 19th century reactions to Native Americans. It takes quite a stroke of insensitivity to both demean a long-persecuted racial minority (at a time of heightened racism) and insult a large segment of our town’s population.
