Being A Minority In The Geek World

  Being A Minority In The Geek World This is a touchy subject, there is no doubt in my mind about that.  But it is one that needs to be addressed. Being a minority in the geek world can be rough and a bit discouraging. Ever since I can remember, I have been a geek. I loved Power Rangers, Super hero movies, Star Wars, Dragon Ball Z, Yu Gi Oh, WWF, video games, and so many more things. I believ...[Read More]
