I am responding to the Dec. 7, 2016 letter to the editor “Landmark needs to get a grip.”

The Landmark deserves a high mark, because racism is never correct; furthermore, we have a man who, although he was elected president, has no right to practice racism. As president, he has the obligation to be civil and respectful. The president has no license to lie, especially if he expects to be respected himself.
