Middled Makes Print

Today the West End Word is running my article, "Why Am I Afraid of Black People?" as a guest column. Here's the link. I cut it down to about a fourth of the original, so check out what was lost and, perhaps, gained.

Also, take a look at the rest of the Word while you're there. It's a great free paper that's been fighting the good fight in St. Louis City for over thirty years.

Oh ya, I thought you did a great job editing it down- it can be a tough job. Even though it was much shorter, you still conveyed a thought provoking message.

Awesome! I actually think it worked better as a shorter piece (but that's probably because I'm a lazy internet reader)

It worked! The shortened version was interesting and provocative. A good discussion stimulator! Congratulations!
