Comment on Black lives: generations pass; racism, custody deaths continue by James T Smerk.

I find it difficult trying to bring a child up to be caring and compassionate to all races when they constantly are racially abused, spat on and get provoked for fights every other day from some in this town. The only way to get respect if to give respect, until then nothing will change.
Also you can’t say you want help but then not take it when offered. Schooling has always been the key factor. Go to school and get an education and make the kind of changes you want to see or don’t go to school and end up nowhere.
And painting all police with the same brush is exactly what they don’t want done to them but they are happy to do that to the police.

Why stop at a street name? I mean how much do we really know about superintendent Sir Charles Todd’s wife who this town is named after?
Let’s just rewrite history and leave out the people that were bad, I’m sure that’s a good idea.
Or maybe we leave things as they are and learn from them and teach kids about these things?
I can only assume there will be an audit on all street names and the same process will take place on all streets with issues or is this just a token gesture that really means nothing?

All of the future arguments for closing such sites would be undermined.
We need to create a new man made structure which can capture the imagination or inspiration for people all over the world to see.
The hard bit is coming up with such an idea.
