Medium complains, an antiracist is suspended.

After getting back from a break I noticed an email from Medium support and replied on the 3rd August:

"Hello Gerald
Just got back from a long break.
Which is the offending post?
Thanks, Anu :)

I am still awaiting a reply to my question and a copy of my files.
