The fact that the News-Democrat would print the letter with the Arab ethnic slurs from Terry Hunt of Trenton is appalling. Would you print letters using derogatory slurs for other races or ethnicities, or does the fact they were Middle Eastern make it acceptable?
Your paper does nothing to stop the hate and bigotry towards Muslims that this country is currently enduring, and in many cases such as this, you fuel the fire. You should be ashamed.
