A Reader Asks If His Parents’ Farming Community Is One Of The Ones Kevin Williamson Thinks Deserves To Die


Re: John Derbyshire’s article Do #WhiteTrashLivesMatter To Donorist-Capitalist-Neocon Party Bad Boy Kevin Williamson?

Perhaps the small farming community where my parents were raised is one of those that Kevin Williamson thinks deserve to die.  Well, it probably has suffered a brain drain, as most of the kids that went to college didn’t come back.  One of my cousins who still lives there works in a turkey processing plant.  But he has been there for nearly ten years, and he commutes a long way for that dirty job.  I just hope that competition with illegal aliens and recently legalized immigrants will not depress his wages and his chance of good health benefits.  He deserves a decent life.
