Letter: Bias blocks Latino voices
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The letter from Linda Sagendorf ("Latino newspaper," Forum, Sept. 19) is critical of The Tribune for "fading" and also of the Latino community for wanting a newspaper. God bless The Tribune for overcoming the odds, as it is still afloat! As for the Latinos, Sagendorf states as "fact" they do not want to be part of the American community. Really? A Latino paper may be more helpful on social problems, with immigration, community services, health concerns. It can also support other Latino businesses. This means they do not want to be a part of the rest of us?

I believe it may make them stronger and better-informed. As for hearing their voices, I believe a biased ear is deaf to them.

I see many hard-working Latinos every day, and see their pictures as veterans in the obits each day. Many have bigger obstacles than some of the rest of us. Give them the credit and respect they deserve.
