While all good folks condemn violence, the recent letter from Kathryn Charles, Wilkes Democratic Party chair, (“All forms of violence are condemned,” March 31 issue) is less than truthful.

The violence committed in Atlanta’s massage parlors had nothing to do with race. That was the confession and admission made by the perpetrator who stated that he attacked those businesses to fight his sex addiction, not because they were operated and staffed by Asians. The “workers” at those businesses happen to be Asian, but are more than likely the result of the human trafficking and sexual servitude rampant there.

Recent reports in the national news have centered around violence against the Asian community. What is lost in the reporting is that these attacks overwhelmingly occur in large cities that are under Democratic Party control and have been for decades.
