I just read Carol Zavala’s viewpoint [Opposing Madison apartments doesn’t mean your racist, Viewpoints, Dec. 22]. I agree verbatim with everything she said and I am not a racist. I’m a black homeowner who grew up in the Englewood area. Having such a viewpoint as a black from an area where folks would probably be from who would benefit from this housing is difficult to reconcile.

As Ms. Zavala so eloquently said, there are more places in Chicago for this organization to develop their housing.
