To the Editor....Let's just play ball

To the Editor:
I am writing this in response to Rodney King’s letter about the Cloquet basketball coaches.
First of all, if you are that concerned about an Indian playing on an all-white team, if I’m not mistaken there is an Indian school just west of town, with a basketball team. I’m sure they could use another star player.
You, sir, acted like a complete fool after the Section finals. Where do you draw the line when it comes to race? What about Dillon Johnson or Aaron Johnson? Aaron Johnson came here and took playing time from a white kid who worked his way up through the program.
Why can’t we just sit back and enjoy watching the kids play ball, regardless of race or color.
