I think that you should take a look at the comments section. I called Zora out but others feel excluded too. Is Zora that sanctimonious for you that it is above all critique? If yes, then you are the one that has the issue. People and publications grow from constructive criticism, not the opposite. And about me having to toughen up — that is downright patronizing and might I add even disappointing coming from you. But let me take the higher ground here and simply say: let us agree to disagree on Zora. Don’t count on me to not call out behavior that I feel excludes others, that is just the way I am wired. Good luck with the rest of your journey.

I write about racism, but there are so many other things I would like to write about instead. Help me dismantle racism so that I can get to that.
