Feedback: Kanye, Taylor and Jim Carrey — readers react to celebs getting political

If a person’s works or tributes are to be shunned because of objectionable personal views, we’ve got a lot of work to do. Charles Lindbergh was a racist and anti-Semite, so the Spirit of St. Louis will need to be pulled from the Smithsonian and scrapped. George Washington owned 100 humans, so there goes Mt. Vernon and the Washington Monument. Theodore Roosevelt called Filipinos Chinese half-breeds, so there goes that Mt. Rushmore thing. Von Dutch made some interesting, culturally significant art. I think we’re smart enough to separate a person’s works and talents from his or her often unfortunate personal beliefs.
