What happened after that?
Not a whole lot. I got into a long "argument" with a colleague who claimed my statistics must be wrong. He demanded proof, and I spent a good while collecting it for him. To no avail, of course. Once I presented him with solid written sources for my numbers, he said the problem was that the MAN (I kid you not) was putting out fake data to badmouth Black people. This is the sort of person my students considered an intellectual!
Aside from this guy, most of my colleagues just avoided the subject. But my big boss (the college prez) made very sure I suffered, and--for this as well as many other of my indiscretions--he saw to it that my early retirement came just a bit earlier than I had planned.
