Deseret News

The Voices section in the Sunday edition of the Deseret News is something I look forward to reading each week. Typically, it reflects the views I have on various subjects. This week’s editorial did the same — however, I was disappointed and surprised at the inclusion of a quote from former President Woodrow Wilson given on July 4, 1914, belied by what we now know about him — and which was further acknowledged in an article in the same edition as your editorial. To wit, that Princeton University has renamed the School of Public and International Affairs, excluding the use of his name due to Wilson’s “racist views and policies.” The article then went on to expand on the reasons for this change in name. In light of current national issues regarding race and unity, I would hope the Deseret News would avoid future coincidences of this nature. For me, your editorial made me vow to personally make sure my words match my actions as our nation strives for unity.
