An Open Letter to Jaron Mays

For your Consideration

Dear Mr. Mays,

I have read more of your Medium essays than I can count. My voice recognition app even correctly spelled your name when I was dictating this. I disagree with most of what you say, but I also admire the fierce music of your writing style, your willingness to say what you think, and your ability to think for yourself.

I have no direct experience interacting with the Black people you frequently describe with the noun “hood rats” and the adjective “comfortable-ass”. I don’t doubt…
