Letter: Regarding ‘What’s the matter with Aurora?’

The Rev. Dr. Thistlethwaite condemns Aurora, Colorado, and, by extension, many other towns in Colorado and in other states, with her superficial and biased analysis of life in so-called “Sundown Towns.”

In so doing, the Rev. Dr. places herself on a pedestal and looks down on the citizens of Aurora and the other towns she deplores.

Perhaps the Rev. Dr. has forgotten the lessons of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Old Testament where the Lord refused to destroy the city and all of its inhabitants if there were 10 righteous persons among its residents.

Is there not 10 persons in Aurora who qualify as sufficiently woke by the Rev. Dr.’s criteria?
