Coloring Their Views

November 25, 2002

Re "Prayer Finds an Opening in L.A. School," Nov. 20: I read that the Child Evangelism Fellowship has won a lawsuit allowing its members free use of campus facilities for after-school meetings.

I hope that this group will not perpetuate the misguided ideas prevalent in our Western society about color. According to the article, the teacher displayed a multicolored floppy top hat. In describing the meanings of each color, she explained that "black represents sin" and "white means clean from sin." As a black person, I resent this implication.
