Actually, this is more or less what I expected. That said, I sincerely would like to understand your point of view. I obviously don't. So, if winning means attacking me to, have at it. This is the heart of many of the problems in the larger diversity discussion.

A while ago, I had noticed quite a few tweets appearing on my timeline. Most of them were things that I agreed with. When saw tweets like white is racist by default - that made me a bit uncomfortable, "but I'm not racist!" my inner voice yelled.

Then I started to follow more people, then watched a few talks, then listened to a few podcasts, read a bit, etc. When feeling that discomfort - instead of getting defensive, I got curious - and then started to do the work to educate myself.

If you want to learn and understand - follow more diverse people - listen, read - don't interject "but what about white men!" the moment you feel uncomfortable - don't center yourself at every conversation and opportunity

There are some people that are willing to do a bit of work to get you pointed in the right direction - and be thankful for those who do. You can't expect them to do all of the work for you. At times, the most powerful thing you can do is simply - shut up and listen.
