Picus' Rumor Mill

April 25, 1993

The Rumor Mill sponsored by Councilwoman Joy Picus (April 7) is a good idea, but when police officers are called to investigate why black men are going to a public establishment, Smart and Final, that's where I draw the line.

What is suspicious about black men going to this public place? Smart and Final did not call to report concern. Would the police come if two vans of white men arrived at the highly populated black and brown area of Los Angeles where there is a Smart and Final located on Crenshaw Boulevard?

When will this stop? When will we be judged by our actions, not our skin colors?

Joy Picus, thanks but no thanks when your Rumor Mill produces vigilante activities!
