Now I don't like Ms Coulter and think she is a total waste of oxygen. I read these boards reguarly and try not take things too seriously. However I
must question why because the woman is very light skinned you feel she looks like a ghost and must go to a tanning bed and darken herself.
Not everyone has or wants a dark/brown complexion. As a person who is extremely fair skinned and could not darken even if I "had a free pass to a
tanning booth" and who has heard the "casper the ghost" comments my whole life I find your remarks offensive. I don't feel it was made in a
racial sense like the poster above because your too intelligent for that, but I find it offensive all the same.
Now I know your hispanic, and if your like my girlfriend, darker skinned. If it were a hispanic woman in the picture and someone said she was
invisible in the dark and needed to be dipped in bleach you would be outraged and up in arms.
With all due respects Marg please think before you make remarks like that. There are many different kinds of people on this board and some may find
your "joke" to be crude and offensive.
I'm sorry I had to call you on that and I hope you understand my feelings and that it is not a personal attack on you, I would have written this to
anyone who made such a remark. Thanks.
