Thanks for reading and responding, Nelis. Please don’t claim to have a closer experience with racism than myself. I don’t know what you’ve been through and you surely do not know what I’ve been through.

Regardless, the topic of your response was not that of my article. My concern has to do with the engineers at AirbnbEng adding to the issue of racial discrimination, especially that of housing which Black Americans are clearly one of the largest groups to be victimized by. I only hope to shed light on that issue and add to the growing evidence that there is an issue that AirBnB needs to fix but continues to neglect. Please do not take away from that.
