White Noise
Son of Baldwin

I really hate it when white people, who are so often racist, actually find the rare occasion where a black man or woman really has overreacted. This is one of those cases. I get that we are righteously sensitive to gentrification, to the subtleties that pernicious racism morphs into. Even so, sometimes you, even you black man, are just a rude neighbor. Two a.m. was a good clue. I’m glad you printed the actual note: it is clear you have upset neighbors but they were much more polite than you rant about. Please be quiet.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
