Upon waiting for a class to start the other day so I picked up a copy of the Clackamas print for a leisurely read. I often read the Clackamas Print to unwind after a long day, but NOT that day. I flipped through the paper and found the comics. I must say that I was HIGHLY offended that you allowed a comic with racial slurs into your fine newspaper. If you do not know what I'm talking about, I refer to the "Cracker Community College" comic. Being a white male, I find the term cracker offensive and I think it was VERY poor taste allowing such a comic into your newspaper.

I hope in the future that you do not allow such obviously racially motivated comics in your fine newspaper. It ruins the reputation of your fine newspaper, and my afternoon. Please keep this in mind next time anything on the same level as this "trash" comes across your desk.

Signed,
Offended In Oregon City

I agree

I totally agree with your above letter to the editor. I attended CCC for 3 years and I can remember once last year where there was a comic strip printed that one of my co-workers wrote. I was totally affended by it and told him so. Needless to say we dont speak anymore so I am wondering if this is the same co-worker of mine

I really wasn't that offended, I just thought the comic was really retarded. I'm surprised the printed something that dumb.

Re: I'll agree too

Well if it just means that all the attendants are white trash it was probably correct!
