Dear Ana,

I intend no disrespect for you or for your essay. You are clearly speaking sincerely, and your country sounds lovely.

Even so, you need to know that racism, xenophobia, sexism, and other evils can arise within the most friendly and good-hearted of communities, wherever wealth and power are held by the few.

That's my point, that racism isn't about race.
