Some opposition to Chin Baptist Church showed discrimination [Letter]
I am the Realtor that was the agent for the seller of the land that was sold to the Chin Baptist Church. Shortly after this became public knowledge I was approached by a neighbor. He told me this had to be stopped because if you let one Korean into the neighborhood than other Koreans will want to move into the neighborhood. By the way they are not Koreans. Later my son came home and told me that an adult had told him that I was the person who let the gooks into the neighborhood. I don't know if this person was serious or not. The first public hearing was on an Ash Wednesday. What surprised me is people came to the hearing with ashes on their foreheads to oppose the church being in their neighborhood. Many reasons where given why they didn't want the church in their neighborhood but one could not but wonder if the color of their skin was not a factor.
