First off let me apologize because we did get off to a bad start and I don't want to ignore anyone because you're right (ignoring someone would be
close-minded). To be honest I kind of got in a foul mood because on other forums when someone posts something like "So, care to site a source?" or
something it usually comes from people that act snobby on the forums (usually because they think I am incapable of giving a source). It was a stressor
and I apologize. I do not want to be your enemy. You are also right that I assumed you weren't Native American, and that too was wrong. It's just
that usually someone who is Native would find something like that pretty offensive.
But I am curious as to how have I been hateful? I seriously don't want to be your enemy. If I messed up I messed up, and apparently I did something
wrong for you to "not have any use for me". I want to know so I can learn form it and be a better person. We are all learning, and I am no
different. My objective was not to bait anyone into any argument whatsoever which is why I didn't want to start the thread with my own thoughts,
which again involved race, specifically because of the "injun" comment that Rush has used on occasion and the hate it's bred in the past.
I hope we can get along in the future and I do want to hear still what the difference is coming from you as to "politically incorrect" and racist
(also anyone else who has any thoughts about the difference, could make for a good discussion). I am very curious. I could be missing something.
I am an adult, as you seem to be as well and I hope we can turn this away from turning into some dead thread based on two people with different views.
I hate seeing threads like this get derailed. Again, I accept all fault if I did anything wrong and I hope we can continue a thought provoking
discussion in the essence of "bi-partisanship" if you will.
P.S. I sent you a u2u as well and hope that you will still agree to play an active role in the discussion.
