Rebuilding in Riot Areas

June 28, 1992

What is wrong with you, Los Angeles? Why are you trying to rebuild the city without using residents of the riot area?

My father is a general contractor. He is also an African-American. He has faced racism for 40 years in his profession and has survived. No one in the black community wants to hear that after 40 years he is unqualified to do work in his community. We are tired of excuses. We want results.

Face it Los Angeles, if you want peace, if you want to rebuild, then you must incorporate some brown faces into the program.

FRED ALEXANDER FLEET, Los Angeles
