Dear Editor:
I am appalled by the prejudiced sentiments expressed in Mr. Krikorian's opinion piece on the folly of the visa lottery. The lottery is bad because it's bringing in brown and black people, who are apparently not only corrupt but also likely to be terrorists due to their religion. It is bad because it isn't promoting the immigration of white people. Certainly sounds like 'gratuitous profiling' to me, despite the author's two paltry examples to the contrary. I like the lottery because it offers a chance to people without relatives here to help them, who don't already have a foot in the door here. If I were going to change it, I would require proficiency in English and a more advanced set of skills or education. Certainly, the new immigrants should be those who can hit the ground running. I think that there are plenty of Bangladeshis, Nigerians, Egyptians and others who would make great contributors to our society if they won the diversity lottery. This opportunity should remain available.
