Let’s Stop the “Crab in the Barrel” Mentality

By: Major Bert Griffith

Date Posted: 1999-12-03

Dear Editor,

I applaud Doug Esterline for coming to the defense of Maria Howell and for echoing the opinions of so many Americans – Black, White, and otherwise – who are truly proud of this sensational singer. She is a TRUE ambassador of our great country. To Maria Howell: You have more than your share of dedicated fans who appreciate you and what you’ve accomplished – against all odds. You represent those of us who are busy etching out successful careers for ourselves, educating our kids, thankful for what we have, and giving back to the community. We have no time to practice the “crabs in the barrel” mentality.

The critics are born and raised to be jealous, small-minded, whiners, who are doomed to mediocrity. Unfortunately, they pass these values onto their kids who repeat the same vicious cycle.

Major Bert Griffith,
Okinawa
