In summary, no, I am *NOT* racist, as I said before. Yes, I do realize my
remarks might have offended somebody. No, that was not my intention -- I
apologize to those offended.
Sorry, Chuck, you just offended someone there by saying "Oriental!"
One of the ridiculous aspects of "supposed racism", is that you are called a
racist if you "don't keep" with the currently accepted term, or if you are not
a member of the group you refer to.
The example already given was niggers, oops, sorry, I mean negroes, no, wait a
minute, coloreds, no, that's not right either, umm, Afro-Americans, oops, that
was 60s, it's, uhh, blacks, yeah, no! it's become African Americans, yeah, you
people, calling yourselves niggers!
