I’m feeling so much less alone right now. It means a great deal to hear feedback that is positive when so many come to attack me. Learning yesterday that many of those who attacked me were likely bots was both encouraging and discouraging.
If what I am saying is the kind of social commentary that draws Russians to divide Americans that I am doing something right. But that means nothing if Americans remain divided. It seems this comment left on my article that I should “Stop telling black people what to do” may influence some people not to read what I write. That account is influencing people. I never do that in anything I write. I worry about this stuff. And since that account blocked me, I didn’t even know he wrote those things on my article. That was a big wow to me. Bot accounts that could do that.
