Social Misbehavior The U.S.A. Can't Afford

New York City, N.Y.
Dear Judge Pauley:
With respect to the unfortunate and egregious example of untreated racist/colorist treatment with which New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has degraded New York City Councilman's Aide Viola Plummer, a Black activist from Brooklyn, may I tell you that as a concerned resident of Brooklyn, I am distinctly outraged.
In my estimation, and as a longtime activist myself, with over twenty years of community anti-racism/colorism research and training , Ms Quinn has overstepped her authority and, as I wrote to her, has revealed a deeply entrenched level of untreated colorism which has embarassed her and, in her capacity as Speaker, the entire New York City Council. I am not only embarassed as a local citizen by her obvious colorism, I am angry that she has gratuitously showered her opprobrium on to the hired and appointed Aide of the Hon.City Councilman Charles Barron.
I would like to see Ms Quinn referred to the administration of the (Racism/Colorism Quotient Test Program with Follow-Up psychological/psychiatric Counseling, whichever is indicated) for the healing she so obviously needs, as evidenced by her overstepping of her authority in the current contretemps with Ms Plummer.
