In response to the letter regarding Jade O’Neil’s My Take essay:

I really appreciated O’Neil’s essay and the courage it took to have it printed. I, too, am a “longtimer,” having grown up here and having raised my family in Greenwood. It, too, is experiencing rapid change. However, the point of O’Neil’s essay was that gentrification has changed the CD so much that a white woman acted like O’Neil did not even belong there!

I have not been made to feel that I do not belong here. That is only one example of the implicit bias and resultant white privilege which permeates this city.
