Letters: Racism isn't funny, officers

July 27, 2013

Re "Racist, raunchy jokes at sheriff's event," July 25

I was a bit dismayed by the justification provided for condoning racist, raunchy jokes at a "bonding" event attended by L.A County sheriff's deputies.

One official said the jokes were "evenhanded" and not targeted at a particular race. What a great idea, bonding by laughing at everyone in the community they serve.

This does not inspire confidence.
