I fully admit I was wrong.
My comment about black people being horrible was racist and uncalled for.
Facebook had me on a three-day suspension, so I could not apologize there.
I used a cousin's account to try to apologize. It went unheard.
I cannot tell all of you how sorry I truly am. Not because I was "caught", but because I know myself better than this and I said it in anger.
I was being verbally attacked (click here), which happens all the time on social media - I have participated in it myself. And I reacted in a manner that is intolerable.
There is no excuse for what I wrote;
I'm simply explaining why I wrote it.
I am already finding ways to make up for my mistake.
It will just take time, as most repairs do.
To those who have been hurt by my comments, I am sorry, and you deserve better. May you receive it. And may our world change for the better.
