All politics are local

A Pembroke West UBP constituent tackles Jamahl Simmons' claims of racism head on in the Royal Gazette's Letters to the Editor.

Money quote:

The difference is that Mr. Adderley is no stranger to us as we see him at church services, in the grocery store and various other places around our community and he always asks how things are and seems genuinely interested in what we have to say. You claim that he is more acceptable to us because he socialises with us. I think a better way to put it is that you are less acceptable to the people of Pembroke West because you were rarely seen or heard from, and it seemed more and more apparent that you were not interested in representing us. Race is completely irrelevant.

As the saying goes, all politics is local.
