Letter to the Editor: Are we racist or not??

   Dear Editor:

   I guess we'll know by June 7 just how racist Calaveras County really is. If Mr. Trump wins big, the KKK that is rumored to be here is sure to get stronger.

   To me that is a totally horrifying thought. And what will happen in November? What if the whole country votes to have a racist for President?   My whole vision of America will be in the dumpster if that happens.

  Thanks for posting my thoughts,
