Dated January 15th, 1995. Older than me…yikes.
The letter is up for auction with a starting bid of $100,000!
“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ that I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. Like you said, I haven’t been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being. I never meant to hurt you.”
