I Was Racially Taunted. Wasn’t I?

“Ambiguity has always been a friend to racism,” writes former professional ball player, MLB analyst, lecturer at Yale University, and contributing opinion writer, Doug Glanville (New York Times, May 19, 2019).   It was his response to an incident earlier in the month when a Cubs fan caught on camera behind Glanville made an upside-down “O.K.” sign with his hand, a “sign soon morphed into a genuine expression of white supremacy.”  Glanville goes on to explain how incidents like these in the lives of people of color form a pattern of racism, incidents too often dismissed by those who do not share these experiences.  Read his op ed by clicking here.
