Fontaine Responds to Clarke's Letter

Dear Source:
I understand and appreciate your point of view. My point is the disparity between the two atrocities. We all do make our own way, as I have and everyone else in my family. I am proud of my accomplishments and quite honestly would not accept any handouts or compensations from the government.
Speaking frankly and honestly reparations will never be granted, both you and I and anyone with a sense of history knows that is an undisputeable fact. To answer your question c/o any difference between the races I would say in certain circumstances some groups are treated in a different manner than others. As for hurting my feelings, I was soldier for 10 years and served in combat, you can't hurt my feelings with words. I apprecaite and always respect your comments!
Anthony Fontaine
