Want to be Offended?

I have no idea why google news picks up the RSS feed from this publication, but when I saw this bit of text: “I live in California, and am no longer willing to go into Los Angeles. It has become such a cesspool of filth and decay” I had to go see what the author was talking about. It turns out that the author is a racist bigot vehemently opposed to illegal (and probably legal) immigration. I couldn’t get through the whole article, but he basically says that illegal immigrants are destroying out country. Here is the whole paragraph about Los Angels he quoted from a letter he received:

I live in California, and am no longer willing to go into Los Angeles. It has become such a cesspool of filth and decay, directly as a consequence of the illegal congregation over the past 25 years. Coupled with the fact that the local government has been taken over by ignorant, barely literate, uneducated, uneducable individuals and what else is to be expected? I am a native of this state. I do not any longer recognize it from that in which I grew up.

I wanted to see what wikipedia thought about the author Frosty Woldridge, but it turns out that his article is basically a vanity piece with no mention of his bigoted viewpoints and his questionable opinions of immigrants. Methinks that wikipedia article is in dire need of revision.

  1. Hey man, if you don’t change it, maybe no one will. That’s what Wikipedia’s all about! Go change it!!!

  2. I guess I didn’t read it clearly. The person who sent the letter probably is a transplant to California like the vast majority of folks. I’ve seen the cesspool stuff before. Seems like someone forgot that immigrants have been in Los Angeles for a long time and isn’t something that just came about 25 years ago.
