    After having discussed this article with a few friends of mine, I do apologize for the language I have used in this article. I wrote it in rush with strong emotions upon seeing horrible insults said about some of my friends in online platforms they did not have a presence. In an attempt to criticize such language, I unfortunately also used a similar rhetoric.

    I still believe the two points I was trying to make in this essay: dialogue and friendship across political lines are extremely vital, and perfunctory labeling is extremely dangerous. Nevertheless, I apologize for using an unfriendly and alienating language myself and for the loaded terms I used without researching their connotation such as “real racism.” I did not know about the history behind that phrase. I would not have used it, if I knew. And, I will not use it again.

    Thanks for reading!

    This article is insightful and much appreciated. This is one of the few times I have heard someone call polarization harmful and then actually speak up against the implications of it. Thank you.

    I don’t think that writing a civil opinion column about TFL counts as “persecution”, and I would think that you would know better. However, I appreciate the viewpoint that you brought to this issue.

      He did not call it persecution, he stated persecution as a plausible worse-case scenario
