At heart of squeegee issue is fear of Black youth | READER COMMENTARY

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.
