THE EDITOR, Sir:

Thanks to Gordon Robinson for his column titled 'Still dunce one year later' (Gleaner, December 17, 2013).

Orville Higgins is actually from Westmoreland, a parish with a history of fighting racism. Clearly, he was shielded from birth, as his utterances denote a black man

completely cut off from history and an under-standing of the struggle that black people have undergone for centuries on our precious

island and globally against racism. I do hope his enlightenment starts with having read your column.

Yes, I vote for him to win your annual Dunce Award again, hands down.
