Letter: Pushing back racism

Mary Tanguay Webb re Boston rally

I was thrilled to see 40,000 protesters show up for the “free speech rally” sponsored by the white nationalists on Saturday. The group’s small showing of under 200 quickly left, and the good people of Boston walked the streets of their city with pride.

I had hope for the first time that this may all turn out well. Our country is a good country, an open country and a welcoming country. Forty thousand folks cannot be wrong.

It gives us all hope that we can push back on these absurd racists. We just need to show up, and keep America great.
