Legislators use Towson melee to divide us

October 04, 2012

Let's remind Del. Pat McDonough ("Towson melee not the same as Inner Harbor crime," Sept. 29) and Sen. Jim Brochin ("On Towson melee, Rodricks needs to check his facts," Oct. 1) that we live in a region that includes Baltimore City and county. This region is made up of all types of people — black, white, brown, rich and poor. If our politicians started seeing this as a region, they could begin addressing problems of poverty, unemployment and education in a meaningful way rather than resorting to stereotypes to lay blame for our region's problems.
