Marjorie Owen (10/6, Letters) may wish to reconsider her stance against Barack Obama based upon the book Obama Unmasked because its author, Floyd Brown, is the same man who scripted the 1988 racially-tinged Willie Horton ad against Michael Dukakis. He is an author whose works few of us would be proud of using to shape our vote.
Using Brown’s own birds-of-a-feather reasoning: Brown is tied to racists such as segregationist Jim Johnson of Arkansas, the leader of the White Citizens Council. Johnson became infamous for stirring up racial hatred, which culminated in the 1957 Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis.
This is the same Jim Johnson that Floyd Brown gave a special thanks to in the acknowledgments of Brown’s Slick Willie book. I doubt Ms. Owens would trust this author is she knew his background.
