Great article, something that I have noticed about my own social interactions. I think everyone needs to have a haven where you can say what you want. I know my wife does not find the conversation that i have in my private groups funny and that’s fine its not meant for her.
I find that as I grow older and now have kids these social chats have taken over what used to be the time I would spend with my buddies ripping each other and talk about our lives.
I think this applies to everyone not just minorities. Everyone wants a space they can talk freely and not be judged and in todays society we are constantly judged.
