This letter is in reaction to this crazy story out of Baltimore:
First the story, then the letter.
I just wanted to say thank you the amazing work you are doing in this area. I also appreciate your being one of the few eloquent voices speaking truth to stupid today about this painful issue we all deal with every day.
This sort of thing is so commonplace in our society and what’s worse…it’s tolerated and acceptable by a vast majority. All of this only hurts humanity and keeps us from the peace that most of the human race long for on a daily basis.
I’m sorry to say I live in Baltimore (born and raised) and my family and I experience this type of thing every single day.
I was also a victim of something similar happening to me as a teenager. I was attacked by a gang of black kids, while coming home from middle school on public transportation.
And of course got nowhere when going to police, and the MTA for justice. It’s really sad this has been tolerated for so long and our rights are pretty much taken away.
Yet, we have to be so sensitive in our manner of speech, behavior, while others take liberties that no person should be able to take and inflict serious injury on other human beings.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks again. I’ve seen very few journalists and writers with the chops to speak out on this issue and it makes me happy to know that you are on the case.
Hopefully, this will open people’s eyes and create an opportunity for us to address this injustice. Well done sir, take care and God bless Colin.
Black mob violence is no surprise to this reader. Or anyone who read White Girl Bleed a Lot.
