Dowdell should stop embarrassing ward and do something positive

Yes, Rev. Arthur Dowdell is the councilman in my ward. No, I do not agree with him pulling up flags at Pine Hill. This is not his right. Many others in this ward and city do not accept his actions. To get respect, you have to give respect. What I put on my family graves at West View is my business, and what Pine Hill does to honor their ancestors is their right. Be tolerant of others regardless of who they are. Pulling up flags is so petty.
Do something positive in the ward you represent and stop being embarrassing. I marched for equal rights and voter registration, not to regress back to the Civil War.
