Black Scientist Called Racist Slur for Declining to Write for Free

Dr. Danielle Lee, a biologist who pens the blog Urban Scientist, was called an “urban whore” by an editor of Biology-Online.org for declining to write for free. “Are you urban scientist or an urban whore?” she was asked after choosing not to write for exposure.
