Call Us Irresponsible

To the editor:

The advertisement signed by "J. Johnson" on page 38, Section 1, of the June 24th issue, should not have been printed by any responsible newspaper. You have let "Mr. Johnson" (there is no address or phone number with his name) turn the Reader into a forum where the most vulgar racists can express their hatred of white people, the Mayor, and especially Jews.

Would you have run this ad if its target was Afro-Americans or homosexuals? Imagine an ad placed by the Ku Klux Klan with the headline "Mayor Daley Thinks Black People Are Dumb and Stupid." Think about it.
