Hello Oregon,

I am a junior in high school here in Oregon and a few years ago when I was about 15, I made a very poor decision to engage in and write a hateful racial message.

I would like the Oregon community to know how sorry I am for doing this and for who I have disappointed or have hurt along the way by doing so.

I was always a very bubbly and sociable person and that is how I would like people to know and remember me. Not for what has happened in the past; which I am truly sorry for.

I am not writing this to change anyone’s opinion of me. I am just trying to share with the community and let everyone know that I am sorry for my actions.

I hope that the community accepts my apology and I wish the best for everyone.

Thank you for reading this.

Brooke White
