Dear Editor

I won’t accept Rupert Murdoch’s apology for damage his media has done to racial harmony in our country. His crimes will be handled by the authorities in England if not in the USA because Murdoch rules big American media and promotes Republican politicians. For more than a decade Murdoch has increased racial tensions in America by Fox News exploiting our national birth defects which collectively include slavery, Reconstruction, lynchings, Jim Crow, discrimination and now mindless Teabaggerism. Before Fox News, America and its citizens were slowly progressing towards a better society with the stated goal of “Liberty and Justice for all.” Supporting that goal was the fact that many of us had well paid industrial jobs that kept us away from hate groups and the self pity they encourage among their followers. Hate speech on the public airways was prohibited by law until Fox made its own rules using Glenn Beck. So the takedown of Rupert Murdoch is welcome. Go England. Go United Kingdom. You have earned the right to again be called GREAT BRITAIN.
