Thank you for your kind words, Duo. But it's not the same thing.

What I wrote was "I have compassion for those discriminated against and also for those who are discriminating against others out of fear or lack of empirical understanding." I was speaking of young people who have ageist ideas. If they live long enough, all young people will have the empirical understanding of being older (and eventually, old). No white person will ever have the empirical understanding of what it's like to be Mexican.

Please, let's put this issue to rest. I'm biracial (white/black) with a much older Mexican boyfriend, so your seeming effort to align my comments with racist ideals is really distasteful to me.

It would be great if you would add that to the official Writer's Guide.

I'm so glad you wrote this! I don't have much to say on the subject, but it was an interesting read (both the article and the comments). More, more, more!

What a great story (and win-win ending). I am especially impressed by this line: "I had to make sure the problem was solved soon because we were about to move and I didn’t want to leave this for the landlord." That's the essence of graciousness!

I just saw the humor tag now. That makes more sense. (Also: perfect gif.)

Smiling my face off at this excellent imagery.
