White Fears and Racism

June 28, 1992

Amy Wallace's article ("Whites Face a New Fear: Being Judged by Color," June 15) provides valuable, albeit unwitting, insights in the continuing debate about real and apparent racism on the part of whites and blacks.

On the one hand, we have the fact that Reginald Denny would not have been alive today if some blacks had not intervened, at considerable bodily risk to themselves, and ferried him to the hospital in time. On the other hand, there is the fact that neither Wallace nor the whites she interviewed for her article thought fit to take note of this act of human decency and courage when evaluating what they like to term "black racism."

The discerning can draw their own conclusions.
