Coward has no clue what he's talking about

Ok, so my organization is having a big anniversary gala. (I want to be vague here as it is a huge event and probably being looked up on the internet a bit. I do not want this blog to be a search result.)

I get and keep track of all the response cards in a database I've created and it's fine.

We are a non profit and this is our first big fundraiser in 20 years. 65.8 percent of the population we serve directly every single day is African-American. We are awarding an African American student. Over 60% of our staff is African American.

Some cowardly, clueless person had the audacity to write us a message on the back of a response card and sent it without a name, return address, nothing.

It reads:

I know you intentionally charged $200 per person to keep the African American population to a minimum. Well, you succeeded. That's why God has started to avenge America for its injustices.

Ok. Thank you for speaking without even having a clue who we are or what we do and why are you on our database and thank you also for being cowardly and not leaving us with any information to write you a very kind letter with some FACTS that would hopefully make you feel like the asshole that you are.
