Hi Carol. Thank you for reading, and for the note.

You said:

"But your friend approached the family herself, and apparently demanded answers. Every Black person I know has had to endure this type of questioning."

If that is the case, I am very sorry to hear that. It's just not right. I was not aware that this type of thing was so prevalent, that so many Black people have had to endure questioning like this. I am learning a lot from this conversation and my awareness is heightened.
