The little group had been struggling with words for more than an hour and Vivian Lincoln still wasn't sure what she wanted to say. She began slowly: "I grew up in Harlem. . . . When I got out into outer society, I became angry because of prejudice, because of being treated unfairly because of my color. It took me a long time to understand it. "Racism and violence," the 49-year-old Mission Hills woman said, "sort of go hand in hand," one fueling the other. Those around her began to nod.

The frustration in 70-year-old Layvonia Miller's voice resonated throughout the Friday night block club meeting. Eleven African-Americans showed up for the meeting in South-Central, but only three homeowners lived on Miller's street. Most of Miller's neighbors are Mexican- and Central American, and they repeatedly turn down her invitations. "I got a little bit discouraged trying to get people to come. They don't show up, so I give up," she said.

Tired of the city's tarnished image, Patsy Carter had been waging a small battle against crime in her neighborhood with mixed success. Now Carter is taking her fight to the streets along with members of the Doheny Neighbors, a small group of residents and business owners who are using rakes, brooms and shovels to combat crime. "What people in Los Angeles don't realize is there is a correlation between clean streets and safety," said Carter, a member of the 23rd Street Neighbors Assn.

The recent clashes between Muslim and Croat forces have demonstrated the reprehensible brutality that Croat military formations have displayed continually from the very beginning of this conflict. The junta in Zagreb will use any ugly means to further its pernicious onslaught in the Balkans, whether it be by bullying or the use of death squads. The massacre in the village of Ahinici is not an isolated event. This has been ongoing since 1991, when Croats "ethnically cleansed" the Serb population of Slavonia, a large area east of Zagreb.

The article is framed in primarily negative and disjointed themes. Three principles define a community: ideology, individuals and institutions. The American Jewish community is undergoing a transition mirroring these three factors. Ideologically, American and world Jewry is dealing with the implications of the disintegration of the communist world and the re-emergence of nationalism. The implications of this phenomenon raise new questions regarding the status and security of Jews in many nations.

I am writing on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Community Relations Conference of Southern California to express our strong disapproval of statements made by Ezell. The CRCSC is a coalition of 95 organizations in Southern California which have come together to address racial, ethnic and human relations, as well as governmental and civil issues. We are saddened by the events of recent weeks in which Salvadorans and a priest have been attacked or threatened in Los Angeles by international terrorists.

"History Returns to Haunt the Present" by Dr. Rita Rogers (Commentary, March 1) came as a breeze of fresh air in the midst of a stale stench of misinterpretations and lies about the Yugoslav conflict. Her objectivity is commendable, especially in time of prolonged anti-Serbian hysteria in the U.S. media. It strikingly stands out from attempts to accuse Serbs of all evils. The newest example: prejudiced and ill-intended allegations (based on a false and clearly misleading tip) that the freshly invented "Serbian Liberation Front" was responsible for the World Trade Center blast only a day before the arrest of the suspect, a Muslim fundamentalist.
