Michael Harrington makes some very valid points (Opinion, March 27).
He observes that Jackson is still being treated as a second-class candidate by many political professionals, but also recognizes that Jackson is the only candidate with a specific program against drugs, mobilization of pension funds and savings for full employment and serious international economic policies. Harrington also states that Jackson is building an interracial coalition. My ancestors were slaves. My German Jewish background made me experience a transformation of the prejudices in Germany under Hitler. When I travel in Germany where my ancestors have lived for centuries, I am now treated with respect and deference by the majority of the German people.
