What do child smugglers look like?
I read with interest your article on the Smyrna woman involved in child smuggling. It was particularly intrigued by your first sentence, and wonder, what exactly a child smuggler looks like. I assume "Goforth didn't look much like a child smuggler" was written without malicious intent. However such phrasing implies that there are people who look like child smugglers (people who presumably do not have blue eyes, among other things) and reinforces stereotypes against such people. I hope that you will reconsider the use of that phrase. Thank you for your otherwise excellent article.
