Hello H. Elizabeth.

Thank you for the comment.

I'm rereading what you said here:

"I generally dislike the way certain people are vilified in the media and have their whole lives and character distilled down to a few minutes caught on video. But this piece just feels gross to me. You are ignoring her responsibility in this situation."

You're right....I felt Susan was vilified in social media and it didn't sit right with me because yes, I have seen another side of her personality.

I don't know, maybe you are right....did Susan have a resposibility because her neighbors are Black? My dear friend (White) complained to a neighbor (also White) about a property issue....I think filming it and escalating to social media would just put the first neighbor on defense, right? Maybe I am missing something really big here.

Sincerely, Alice
