Message from the Editor:

It has been brought to the editorial board’s attention that a piece that ran in last Wednesday’s Daily Sundial Spotlight section included a reference to the indiscriminate hanging of individuals, which, upon closer consideration, comes across as racially insensitive in light of the historical context of lynching. Unfortunately, the reference to hanging and lynching, which to this day still occur, stirs painful memories.

Although this reference was not intentionally inserted to be offensive, we understand the valid concerns that have been voiced by some of our readers in recent days. The Daily Sundial editorial board apologizes for the reference’s inclusion in the piece, and for the oversight of not acknowledging before publication that the reference was offensive.

We thank those readers who have brought this to our attention, and encourage others to share their concerns.
