Letter: Remember Gandhi, King

Those who have gone from protest to riot have forgotten the lessons of Gandhi and King. They were effective through non-violent civil disobedience.

A riot makes victims out of those whose property is damaged and the public’s sympathy will turn to those innocents, not the victims of racism.

Local African American leaders should be calling for the King/Gandhi approach and calling for an end to counterproductive riots.

This is a sad chapter in our city’s history.
