Wednesday. November 19, 1975 Concerning Racism It is u n f o r t u n a t e t h a of the C u m b e r l a n d C h a p t N a t i o n a l Association /or the vancement of Colored People chose a completely i n a p p r o p r i a t e which to address a letter c h a r g strong racist a t t i t u d e on the Cumberland citizens. If he feels such charges are valid he should have ad- dressed his letter to the Mayor and Council or other authorities who have power to bring remedial action. The N a t i o n a l Council on ment of The N a t i o n a l M u n League is not such an e n t i t y . effect the letter may h a v e is to barrass the city and possibly to diminish the chance C u m b e r l a be named AD American City, to the detriment of both black and white citizens. Certainly the charge made that "Cumberland. Md.. is probably the most racist city in the State of Maryland" is easily refuted by pointing to the fact that Mr. John Wormack received the highest number of votes any candidate in the last councilmanic election. This appears to be the op- posite of racism. In any c o m m u n i t y of may be a few persons of racist in- clinations, including both black per- sons and white. But certainly the vast majority of Cumberland citizens are advocates of good will and fair play racial matters. With so many positive factors beginning to surface in the c o m m it would appear t h a t everyone conduct his a f f a i r s in a m a ·will make the entire c o m m u n i beneficiary of a reservoir of good will.
