Allen Johnson’s guest columns generally convey what a fine person he is, and what a bunch of louts the rest of us are, so I wasn’t surprised to find that attitude in his Sept. 5 column, “Being curious about tribes can change the world.”
But I could scarcely believe he had the temerity to include an attempt at dialect when he quoted a “round, radiant grandmother” in the Black Baptist church he visited: “I be so happy you come visit our church. I got a blessin’ wid yo name on it.”
I am appalled the Herald would publish this condescending bilge.
