Letter: Responsible discourse needed, not baseless comment

There’s an unfortunately large group of people in our society who believe that they can say whatever they want without consequences, no matter how degrading, how untrue, and how baseless. Frankly, this disturbs me. Opening up Twitter last night during the debate, an example of this came from a Chris Rock tweet: “Ann Romney is at home throwing dishes at her TV and cursing ‘No you black man, don’t you talk to my husband like that’“. In his tweets he painted the Romneys as xenophobic, bigoted, narrow-minded, hateful, and extremely racist. Some will say this can be expected coming from a comedian like Chris Rock, but I believe our nation is in need of more responsible discourse, even from comedians.
