F. Coleman,

Thanks for reading!

I try to handle myself with grace in the comments section, but sometimes I just have to clap back. I respond to trolls if they are raising a question that I have heard a lot from other white people. I respond because I think there are other white people lurking in the comments section who might actually read it and learn something, even if the OP is intentionally being a jerk.

Since we’ve gone into quarantine, I have decided to devote less energy towards people who are unequipped for discussions of racism. If someone is sincere and trying to learn, I’m happy to engage with them. However, I no longer have time for a foolishness. We are in quarantine and people need to learn how to shoulder their own loads!
