    Hi Meredith,
    I read your blog via RSS (I use Feedly) and have enjoyed your thoughts. I had a recent post in my feed about Proud Boys and racism, but it looks like you removed the post. I wanted to let you know that, no matter what the reason for removing your post was, I agreed with your comment that not speaking out about your colleague’s behavior was racist behavior. It is very hard to hew to any ethical standards right now–it seems like the lines and norms sway, shake and move every day. And it is usually easier not to speak out and hope that the bureacracy or administration will deal with these kinds of things. Unfortunately though, this attitude gives people like this power. The people with the authority to do something are usually hoping that the behavior will just go away. So all of us end up walking around in circles, hoping that the bad actor will eventually tire of us all avoiding her. And bad things happen.

    Stay strong, and keep learning!
