It’s about time. The apology Lancaster Newspapers published was the proper thing to do after publishing a stomach-turning cartoon — a picture that any first-year journalism student would have found improper and highly insulting to a race of people.

This newspaper always was a left-leaning news outlet, so maybe those of us who have followed this newspaper can hope for more fair and balanced reporting, as well as balance in the editorial departments, which was surely lacking in both areas. Racialization (my word) past practices and present-day occurrences are coming to the forefront of society, and I feel well about it.

I just hope this is a wave that doesn't stop and that all who have indulged in these practices are exposed — from government agencies to private employers.
