Come on over to my page, RatPackStocks...

I too feel like a voice crying in a very white wilderness. In the past few days on Quora I've been dealing with several respondents (including 1 black woman) who see me as way out of line--silly, stupid, uneducated (I have a Phd) focused on subjects I shouldn't be focused on. (That would be the black woman's comment. Her posts, btw, revealed quite a bit of hatred of her own people. Sort of a female version of (sorry my stroke damaged brain refuses to remember the name even tho I was writing about him just an hour ago) know. Trump's former head of HUD.

The other two were deeply conservative men who...yada yada...among other things have a problem with women who refuse to back down or walk away from their nasty assertions, getting nastier by the minute.

Funny thing about those kinds of replies. They actually just egg me on to say more about what they have gottem totally wrong. The last post implied I must be another Rachel Dolezol.

And they refuse to see how their reactions to me are deeply mired in the racism they refuse to recognize.

But I will not back down. I might take a break now and then, but I will never walk away from a fight like that.
