Fears not
Why, James Fears ["Fears and loathing in Oak Cliff," April 23], why? Are we to take this man seriously? Does he really pose that much of a threat, that he should be featured in an article? Will he have a negative impact on civil rights and set them back 40 years? No, no, and no!

I assumed everyone in Dallas knew that people like Mr. Fears existed, especially those mentioned so prominently in your article. But why are his opinions relevant to anyone who matters? I had never heard of him until your article, and I wish it had remained so. His opinions are nothing new to me or anyone else for that matter.

He appears to be a bitter old man who is stuck in the dark days of segregation and Jim Crow. I say to him, get over your damn self, and let the people of Dallas live in peace from the likes of you.
