Thank you for Adam Schwartz’s recent commentary about fear of Black teens (”Fears of Black teens cloud debates over squeegee boys and obscure Baltimore’s bigger problems,” July 19).
I’m a white woman who’s lived my adult life in Baltimore for 53 years. I encounter the squeegee workers downtown frequently and have never had a problem, whether I accept their service or wave them on. Smiling and establishing eye contact goes a long way.
