Thursday’s open line

It has clearly come to the attention of our readers that an employee within the Vance County Schools system has been accused of using racially derisive language towards students while discharging his official duties.

While Home in Henderson avoids the use of racially charged language wherever possible, we understand that the use of such language is sometimes necessary for the purpose of a frank, honest, and open discussion of the issues. However, we expect that our readers will exercise discretion when using such racially divisive language and use it only in the context of the discussion.

Remember, we have a delete key and we’re not afraid to use it.
