Letter: Constituents of color
In the first paragraph of his guest opinion in the June 24 Post Independent, Rep. Scott Tipton reveals his true feelings about his constituents of color. He writes, “the mid-1800s, when people started settling the land that would become Colorado and the Western United States.”
Native Americans and Mexicans settled those lands long before the mid-1800s. Are white people the only people of consequence? Native Americans and Mexicans are people, too, Rep. Tipton.
