Fight racism by reaching out

To the editor:

The racial profiling incident at the Peterborough CVS earlier this month may have been avoided if one of the clerks had asked Mr. Douglas if he could be helped before calling the police. This appears to be a classic case of the saying about the word “assume.” One lesson that we may take away from this is that communication and respect will always conquer fear.
