Not Assuming

Karie Firoozmand
On Tricks (May 2021)

Dear Editor: In the published version of my letter in your March/April 2021 issue, there was something you edited out that I consider essential.

My original submission contained the acknowledgement that I do not know Friend Mike Clarke’s racial identity, and that in conversations like this, I think it’s essential to include such an acknowledgement. I don’t want Western Friend readers to get the impression that I assumed Mike to be White.
