The Root’s Worst Email Comment - the Root
But the idea that someone is heartless enough to take time out of their day to craft an email filled with such hate still stuns.
Just know this (and I feel comfortable speaking for all of the writers at The Root): We don’t wish any of our readers harm, we don’t wish any ill will. In fact we secretly laugh at some of the letters, because what else can you do with such hatred? And even though we are always a little floored that racist groups tend to read a black website, we are still impressed by their commitment to their cause, even if we don’t care for the message.
But there are levels to this, and wishing the deaths of teenagers who watched their best friend die on a day that didn’t start that way is low, even for spewers of hate.
