A Slur Against Puerto Ricans

Posted By on Tue, Jan 30, 2007 at 2:31 PM

As I was reading your story ["The City That Never Works," January 10]. It kind of bothered me that throughout the story you mention that the guy who stole from Christina was Puerto Rican. How did you know he was Puerto Rican? Did he call her and say that he was? Because as the story continues on, it does not mention a Puerto Rican any more -- it keeps talking about a white kid. It is very bad when a reporter marks a person's heritage without having the facts straight. You have given Puerto Ricans all over a very bad name. A good reporter works with real facts, and if you are not sure about it, don't write it until you are. My boyfriend is from Cleveland and I read you on clevescene.com all the time. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. Not all Puerto Ricans are criminals. Iris N. Ortiz Brooklyn, N.Y.
