I was greatly disappointed by Dolph Tillotson's commentary ("On a small, gray bird's encounter with cancel culture," The Daily News, Sept. 8). I've always had respect for his journalistic abilities and vision — but no more.
Yes, we are a divided country. Yes, we are divided by political persuasion, race, religion, sex and wealth; but eliminating our history and our country's sacrifices doesn't change any of these things.
In fact, learning from our history and appreciating and remembering its events, missteps and all, is far more beneficial than eliminating these things.
It appears to me that Tillotson has just condoned the sacrifice of his family's rich Southern legacy to "cancel culture" in order to achieve the "wokeness" people with his apparent viewpoints seem so intent on acquiring.
In blaming our president for our divisions through your newspaper, you have joined the multitude of journalists who today feel it necessary to enlighten us with their political indoctrination.
I thought you were better than that.
I've been a subscriber to this newspaper for a really long time, but I think it's time to hang it up.
