Editor's Note 01/31/19

When Mayor Jim Langfelder was quoted recently saying, “I don’t see color,” many readers saw him as tone deaf because that isn’t said anymore, as the mayor knows. “That drives people crazy when I say that,” Langfelder told the SJ-R. “I probably shouldn’t say that.” But maybe he, like many of us, doesn’t know why. People of color see color every day; only white people don’t. If the mayor can change not only what he says about race but how he thinks, he can lead this town to a better place. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
