stereotype. Does anyone agree? Is anyone else upset with this?
Carrie -- Please be careful where you put the insertion point when you
begin typing a response in this group. These are your sentiments, not
mine, and although a careful reading will detect that I actually only
reposted the NAACP press release to which you apparently refer, a cursory
glance by a reader would not. My own initial cursory glance damn near gave
me a heart attack.
