Ken Trainor, I gather from your editor’s note to Alisa Robinson’s One View [People of color deserve respectful coverage, March 31] that your putdown was based on your frustration with the use of the term “defund.” You also let us know that Wednesday Journal did undergo equity training earlier this year. My observation is that it was far from complete (the equity training). I was disappointed because I let myself imagine how refreshing it would have been if you had addressed the full tenor of Ms. Robinson’s view. There is still much for people to learn and understand. I wish WJ could be on the upside of that.
