    And as for the topic at hand, as I said in a previous post..it's RIDICULOUS.
    I was not giving a history lesson, just pointing out the hypocracy of those who keep demanding an apology and restitution, yet do not wallow in the guilt they demand of others. I don't feel guilt. I do feel contempt and superiority because people like that could never be my equal.

    Exactly. It's not what he said, it's the derogatory and inflammatory way that he said it.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Yes I definitely agree with you. Like I said, I love the guy but
    he's not quite house-broken yet when it comes to exercising
    self-restraint in his language according to the time, place and
    company. I know that he was warned several times not to
    let it happen again, so I can't defend him for ignoring a direct
    order from the boss.

    SR, invest in one of these. Believe me, you'll thank me for it.

    Wow! where the heck have I been? I was saddened to see such terms used on this board, especially a poster I liked...damn...! I don't wish to revisit his past transgressions, considering I never knew of them in the first place


    Good on you SR for the swift action.

    If white folks must be held collectively guilty for the evils some whites did, does that mean all white folks should be lauded for the good some white folks did?
