USA" Child 7: 3 years, granddaughter, White, Black, Oriental, Indian, Mexican, (that I know of anyway -- I don't know the father's history) 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! =============================================================================== Roger Vanderveen Intel Corporation Hillsboro, OR ===============================================================================
