Elliot Nichols , it feels good to know that you understood what I was trying to say, and that you appreciated my response.
I appreciate who you wrote the original piece for and why. I’m glad you did, and for that reason I hope it gets a wider audience. I’ve been wanting to hear more from white people on this subject. Without your voices, it’s easier for people of color to be ignored or written off as ‘dangerous’ and ‘violent’ just for being angry about the sorts of hurtful things you were writing about — the hurtful things we live with every day.
