Yes, Jack, i see. As a white man, I was speaking for the Zen
practitioners who are above being offended. It is my belief that a
good practitioner can hear an insult and not think twice about it. It
doesn't bother them in the slightest, therefore they would not
respond. Me, not being a good practitioner, was responding to that
insult on their behalf... Right or Wrong... Probably Wrong!
