Kindra J. F. , I — yes, I am white — am finally wading in here because I can’t stand this anymore.

From everything I have read, you do not seem to be disagreeing with anything jaden violet has written. I have yet to see you logically break down one of her essays and say, “I disagree with your thesis. Here’s why …”

No, what you take exception to is the fact that she, although a POC but not black, is writing about black history … at all.

So, I have to wonder where this is coming from.

Jaden is an extremely kind and compassionate person. Why you chose her to go off on is beyond me. Her conversational writing style is not “classical,” and it took me a while to understand her structure, but it is by no means illogical.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

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