Rights & Wrongs
Sir: The initial Los Angeles uprising [Aug. 20] may have sprung from racial grievances, but there is a difference between action to solve problems and action to relieve frustration. Burning white-owned businesses does not invite integrated existence. I am in favor of constructive demonstrations, but these riots constitute unadulterated defiance of law.

Sir: What the Negro has done to himself was well expressed by French Moralist La Rochefoucauld: "The violence done us by others is often less painful than that which we do to ourselves."
