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.

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!
