When I read Gertrude Brandy’s letter (5/8), I paused and read it again. Yes, she did indeed write, “We — or our ancestors — have all been immigrants, except our native American Indians.”
I am black. My ancestors came over here to this country as slaves, chained in the holds of ships. Many died. I felt compelled to enlighten Ms. Brandy.
We black people are still in the process of trying to obtain full citizenship in America.
