President should be given respect

President should be given respect

It is too bad that we have so many bigots in this country that have no respect for the president of the U.S.A. I am particularly disturbed by the racist jokes, comments and derogatory remarks by our local, state and government officials.

What is more disturbing is our black communities not publicly protesting. Why can’t people understand that even if they don’t like the president, his office should be respected.

Regardless who wins the presidential election, I think that Congress should pass legislation that would disallow anyone (private or public citizens) from derogatory remarks that disrespect the president.

Why can’t people in America come together and forget about race and color and work for the good of this country. Soldiers fight together because they have no choice. They shed the same red blood and die the same way regardless what nationality or color they are.

I pray that one day race will not be a problem in this country.
