Anti-Prejudice Begins at Home 

Well, being a minor as well, I know that this situation can happen anywhere and everywhere ("Wilder Spokesman Made Racist Remarks, Co-Worker Alleges," Street Talk, Aug. 8), and truly I am not prepared to die for my civil rights just yet. I still have my children to raise, and I surely will teach them right and wrong with no prejudice in their hearts. That is where it begins, at home, and my children will have an open mind (I pray) because they have been through some prejudice also. So let's all pray, but really no one person will, or can, do anything about this!
