Letters to the Editor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Black Words Matter

Although I get where the writer was coming from on the cover story about killings in Atlanta, I take issue with a Black paper using “Black-on-Black” crime when everyone should know by now it is a racist trope used to strip us of our humanity. These terms are not used in other communities nor have they been pathologized the way we are. Why is that?

Love for Loni

I really enjoyed the story on Loni Love. I’ve always rooted for her because I know the kind of things she faces in the industry with all the barriers and different obstacles. I think everyone should support her book. It seems like it will be a great, funny read.
