My Anti-African Bias

I want to apologize to any well-intentioned Africans or Americans of African descent who might have written me over the last year. Unfortunately, I now get so much scam mail that any email from someone with a recognizably African last name (Kabilla, Seko, Lumumba etc) who writes in ALL CAPS in the subject header meets with instant deletion. So, for all I know I’ve wronged countless G-File readers from the Congo. One more tragedy of the cyber commons.
