So the guy who sent the racist email resigned from the club we were in together.
I have seen him around town a few times.
When I was younger, I might have been tempted to make a friendly gesture, to be conciliatory.
Now that I am older and crankier, I don't feel the need to do that. He is out of my life and that is a good thing.
I'm thankful to be rid of someone who doesn't grasp basic concepts like prejudice and privilege, like not forwarding emails full of racially charged language.
I don't know why this incident reminds me of a woman my sister once encountered, who said:
"Money talks and bullshit walks. And I'm walking!"
