Apologies for rudeness of others

As a member of this community, I was disturbed by the treatment and innuendoes made to Millete Birhanemaskel. Some people do not have the social grace to accept as equal someone of a different ethnic background. At some time, in the past, we were all immigrants to this country. We learn from embracing other cultures.

I have shown the article to many friends, and we are all appalled at the treatment she has received. I hope it will improve in the near future.

On behalf of myself and friends, I wish to apologize to her for the rudeness of others.
