Petition supporting George Yancy

George Yancy wrote a letter to white people in the NY Times; we mention and link to it here.

It has received a great deal of hateful response. A supporting petition has been created. As Sarah Hoagland writes:

Philosopher George Yancy is currently under attack (receiving racist hate
mail and threats of violence) as the author of “Dear White America”
published by the New York Times in The Stone Column, 12/24/15.

Here is a link to “Dear White America”:

Here is a link to the Daily Nous where where there is discussion about the
abuse he has received and discussion about possible APA responses to
internet abuse:
