As a whitey, kinda pink man (who goes a lovely shade of chestnut in the summer months) - you were wrong! But you get brownie points (no pun intended) for seeing the error of your ways :) Mike.

I can speak up for myself. I do not need to be spoken for. 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!
