The Jonesboro Sun printed an opinion about it's "insensitive language"
Someone from Jonesboro posted a picture of the opinion page printed by the Jonesboro Sun yesterday. They published an opinion about how the homophobic comment was insensitive language. I have not heard directly from the paper and there is no retraction or apology in direct response to this petition. There is no statement from the Jonesboro Sun addressing the editorial choice behind printing this homophobic comment. You can go to their facebook page and see all of the comments made by people who live in Jonesboro. They were really upset by this and rightly so. I think people were happy to see the opinion printed in response to the discriminatory comment. I think it would also be smart for the Sun to publicly commit to no longer printing these kinds of hateful comments anywhere in their newspaper. Thanks for your help.
