“OMG you don’t know about *insert some US POP Culture reference*?!?!?!? SHAME ON YOU” 
1. I’m not American.

This is a classic. Do the same to them when they don't know something famous from outside the US. I'm a woman and I've made plenty of ignorant commenters aware of how clueless they're about soccer or my country. Depends on the exact attitude of the other person though. If they're not malicious about it and sincerely joking in a friendly manner, I don't get upset and I always ask about things that come up that I haven't heard about so I know the context or understand the joke etc. And I confidently talk about my home country and background which is often confused with another and very quickly everyone knows and shows interest and never ever gets it wrong. But you have to be kind about it.

Hi! Looking for a Luxury purse (not laptop bag) that my girl can drag her work laptop around in? She’s currently using a Large Prada top handle bag. Laptop is about 13.5” x 10”.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.
