Every Friday for more than two years, The Root has responded to reader emails and comments. Last week, it only replied to one.
In a powerful piece of writing, Michael Harriot responds to a teacher who feels that “the rhetoric has grown increasingly anti-white, especially from the black community.” The email is long, but here’s the gist:
I think you should be careful to make a distinction between racist white people and the rest like most people know the difference between a good black person and a bad black person.
Harriot’s response is almost certainly the best thing you’ll read today.
