Interculturalisticman, I appreciate the kind words — especially since I’m still feeling very sad and threatened. But then, my friends of color tell me that they usually feel that way so I don’t wish to be particularly special.
You describe these people well, I must say. And truthfully? Being trolled doesn’t bother me; in fact, I feel sorry for them. At the end of the day, you and I may hurt but at least we can rest easy knowing that we spoke and acted from the heart, whereas they have…nothing.
Thank you again, my friend. We shall persevere!
