Stockade-athon’s contribution to Sch’dy worth slight disruption Re Rev. William Levering’s Nov. 11 letter “gently” suggesting a change in the start time to the Gazette Stockade-athon: The race’s current start time, 9 a.m., was requested by the Schenectady police, to replace the original 10 a.m. start. This change was recommended and implemented precisely to avoid unnecessary inconvenience for persons attending local church services, which typically start at 10 a.m. or later. Moreover, current race director, ...

Yes! Sponable! We should have the police make sure no Chinese, or Muslims or any non-Christians even go to the parade. Send them home! Take the country back from all those little dirty brown people in the name of Christ.

WTF ! When did the DG start printing racist diatribes ? !

He Mr Sponable is right, the Chinese era was the same as it was under Hitler, would you say the same if they wore Jack Boots and waved a swastika? I believe also in tradition, Christmas IS the holiday it's not festiva or the year of the dragon. You sound like you are Anti-Christian is that any different than any other type of racism?

Anti-Christian because I believe in tolerance and compassion, and object when Christ is used to vilify other beliefs and traditions?

Well you confirmed that you are a racist so the rest of what you write has no bearing. It is a Christmas Parade not a Chinese Parade, what is wrong with it promoting the "REASON FOR THE SEASON" Political Correctness is out of control, no wonder kids murder kids and have no respect for anyone or anything. Where are our values and our culture. What is wrong with America celebrating Christmas, we have been doing it since 1789, that is our culture and why should we change our culture, those that come to America are suppose to assimilate to us in all ways while still keeping their own identity. We don't tell people that they can not celebrate their culture and they should not infringe on ours. Period.

@wmarincic: if you look at how we dealt with the customs, religions, and even language of our own native Americans, you will see how WRONG your last few statements are ... No need to go back to 1789, just look at the last 100 years.

As far as christmas va holiday: remember holiday = holi-day = holy day

And the season is a holy day(s) to more than one religion.

I assume those who don't want symbols with Chinese origins at the parade would also be against Santa Claus making an appearance, because of his St Nicholas German roots, and we all remember what happened in Germany in the 1930's. "Claus" is even a German name!
