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!
