LOOK BACK, LOOK WEST

By LeRoy Jones

Our country is becoming more and more ethnically diverse and many strive for political correctness to the point that if my grandparents could come back from the grave they would surely say, “Where are we?” Santa Claus can’t say, “Ho Ho Ho” any more because some people among us have put a deviant meaning to the word “Ho” instead of the meaning given in the Merriam- Webster dictionary.
