Vandal Places White Supremacy Stickers in MKE Pedestrian Tunnel

“Reject White Guilt” read two of the small stickers affixed to the wood structure designed to shelter pedestrians from the adjacent BMO Tower construction site. “Import the third world become the third world,” said another. The stickers come from an online, anonymously-run group known as the Hundred Handers that sends the stickers to its members.

One of them still lives in Madison. I see him occasionally and have always tried to avoid crossing his path or making eye contact. In my mind, my avoidance behavior was for his benefit. I didn’t want to subject him to unpleasant memories of encountering me in the school hallways. But recently, I’ve admitted to myself that I avoid him for my benefit. I’m a coward who doesn’t want to own up to what I did to him.So what should I do now? Should I approach him in person or on social media to apologize? Or would that just lead to an unpleasant scene and make both of us feel even worse?
