Written in response to the July front page storis, “Black Lives Matter”
All Lives Matter
I would have a modicum of respect for you if your headline read: “All Lives Matter.” But, I expect that, unless you’re intentionally keeping your eyes wide shut, you have read about white people being physically attacked for carrying such signs; the announcer of the Sac. Kings being fired for expressing just those exact words, and, employees of Cisco being canned for objecting to being forced to “kneel” to the BLM activists. And, of course, Bari Weiss’ resigning from the now, socialist propagandist, NY Times.
Most likely though you are just cowardly White appeasers who, like mainstream media in America, only report the side of a story that supports your particular (socialist) agenda.
More appalling, however, is your photo of parents engaging in child abuse. That photo will stigmatize that child for life. Forcing him to carry a sign promoting something that he knows nothing about: An angry, demanding, self-serving, anti-white racist organization. Shame on them and shame on you.

Written in response to the August front page story, “Why Reparations? Paying for Our Nation’s Original Sin”
“Why Reparations?” Article Didn’t Portray the Other Side of the Topic
As a 4th generation Denverite, I do not agree with your belief that all of America has systemic racism. I was very upset with the recent FP edition’s front page piece entitled Why Reparations? There is no mention of the 100,000 white Christian men who had just lost their lives fighting for the freeing of slaves and the families who had just lost fathers, husbands and sons. The article Paying for Our Nation’s “Original Sin” is very one sided. Why don’t you portray the other side of the topic? If you email bethany @speakeasyideas.com, you will be educated on the series titles Tragedy and Triumph, The story of Slavery in the United States. There are always 2 sides to every issue and it is wrong and irresponsible to simply portray one side as you have done on this issue. Do a better job as a journalist!!!

“I felt proud of our community paper for having the courage to broach such a topic [reparations].”
Thank you Front Porch for the dynamic articles you provide for this community. Having lived here for 16 years, I can tell you in years past, Front Porch often went to the recycling bin without being opened. No more. The quality of topics, as well as the excellent writing, are terrific. I look forward to every issue. I’ve actually taken to keeping the prior month’s edition, usually because I haven’t read everything I wanted to read.
