Apology Letters

   Apology For Cultural Appropriation

Dear {Name},

I feel horrible to have learned of my recent cultural appropriation. I truly had no idea that I should not have {action}, and now that I know, I'm filled with shame for anyone I may have hurt.

I looked at the articles and other resources you provided, and I see now why {action/costume/style/etc.} is disrespectful and even racist toward {culture}. I'm also sorry that you had to do the emotional labor on this; I should have known better.

I am so glad to have friends like you to hold me to account. Life is about learning, and while I regret my mistakes, I'm happy for the opportunity to do better in the future.
