I read PostSecret every week and have done so for years. But I was really disturbed to see a racist secret shared in today’s post. I understand that racist feelings are probably a lot of people’s “secrets,” but it’s offensive to spread those kind of thoughts, not to mention further demoralizing to those who are being discriminated against and possibly reinforcing to those who harbor similar sentiments. What if that postcard had contained anti-Semitic thoughts — would you have posted it then? I doubt it. The fact that immigration is a current issue makes it all the more important to take a stand against the racist undertones of that debate.
I hope you’ll remove the secret and never post anything similar again.
