Re: the Nov. 19 guest column "Dear leaders: I'm indigenous- and I'm a voter, so hear me."
The disrespect shown to Gabriella Cazares-Kelly at a Democratic congressional forum poses a problem for Democratic voters. The Democratic Party of President Obama urged acceptance and diversity. When candidates show their bias, by the way they treat people who attend such events, it sends a definite message that some members of our society are suspect and unwelcome. Candidate Ann Kirkpatrick would be well served to look into why she is running for this office and who she believes she will be serving.
