Md. lawmakers can't rewrite history

February 22, 2011

When I saw the article on the front page of your newspaper about Negro Mountain ("Controversy over 'Negro Mountain' reveals urban-rural divide," Feb. 21), I thought it was a joke! Are you kidding me? Enough is enough! You can't change history, only learn from it. And hopefully you don't let the bad things repeat themselves. We need to stop using the race card. I can't believe that anyone can find the name offensive especially when you know the meaning behind it! What an honor! I'm Polish and Polish Mountain doesn't bother me! (And by the way, how many hundreds of years has this been named this and now all of a sudden it bothers you?) I can't believe that the legislators would even entertain this with all the budget cuts! Spend my tax dollars on education instead!
