Criticism welcome from everyone
I read the criticism of the statement 1 made about Asian children’s education and the head of Drummond School, Mr. Honeyford. 1 welcome the criticism. Everyone is entitled to express his or her own view. Before I made that statement 1 knew I was not going to make everyone happy and I never intended to do so.
No matter what people will say 1 will try my best to eliminate racialism and 1 assure you people will cooperate with me. I will try my best to serve the people to the best of my ability. I assure you I would not do or say wrong things to please people, but do my best to do right things.
