Letter to the editor: The BLM flag is a divider

Every morning the custodian of the school goes out and raises the American Flag, sadly the children inside that school, do not know the Pledge of Allegiance nor the Stars Bangled Banner or any patriotic songs. Patriotism is not encouraged in schools.  Today, that custodian now also raises a BLM flag. Do the children inside that school know what that flag means? Black Lives Matter, does that mean my life, if I am white, red, brown or yellow does not matter? The BLM flag is a divider.

To the people who support BLM, if you really believe Black lives matter, why aren’t you working on the problem of Black people killing other Black people on a daily basis in Chicago?

Also, I think we should raise another flag, UBM, the lives of unborn babies matter.
