It was going to be posted here, but they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
My essay about Joseph Stack’s terrorist attack in Austin, Texas, White Man’s Anger, Black Man’s Death is now available at The Root.
It’s kind of a big deal for me to get something published in The Root. They ran one of my articles in 2008 and I’ve been trying ever since to get a second one published. It’s a tough nut to crack.
Persistence is it’s own reward. It’s nice to be noticed, but for a freelance writer, where you’re noticed is just as important.
It will end up here eventually. For the present I’m happy to have it play on a bigger stage.
