Dear readers,

We have worked with the author to update this essay to address the
concerns that the second paragraph contained anti-Semitic stereotypes. We recognize that such stereotypes are harmful, and are not what the essay, nor the author intended.

We thank you for reading, and for calling us out when we slip up.

Sincerely,
Electric Literature
