Hi Claudia,

It is my hope that people learn to speak candidly about their prejudices so that these can be unpacked and put aside.

I’ve had a number of POC friends vet this article. They saw my efforts for what they were — candid unpacking of bullshit prejudices — racial, sexist, gender-biased or otherwise.

I chose to make this a very vulnerable piece. It seems you went for the easy target instead of allowing yourself to examine your own prejudices. Which is sad — it would indicate that the whole point of the article was lost, in your case.
