Fair point

Good question.

Amen to that

And the information is always presented with a matter of fact approach and with transparent POSITIVE intent.

Oh dear

I wonder if they were on ignore at the time. For awhile I had a few key words completely trashed so I wouldn't be bothered by nonsense.

Is that one where I would have to give my new "canned" response of "Oh Fiddle Dee!"? Sounds like it would be REALLY appropriate for that one!

We really need a blinking while innocent smiley/emoticon at DU.

And now this one goes in my journal too - for safe keeping.

I can't try to identify 'intent' by a poster at DU - but I think once again - what gets said in PM's and in other places away from DU in speaks volumes.

Just in case you forgot - this was *I think* in response to black Americans and specifically those at DU (to include this star member) being kind of about a school celebrating black history month by serving 'stereotypical' foods. I think MrScorpio did a pretty good job - if anyone is interested in digging into this stereotype of pointing out just why the school was being ignorant.

Then the same poster posted an apology.

Okay - so in the 'margins' we all sort of discussed it and well - it's like when someone says, "Hey no offense!" after making a joke about black people around black people.

You wink, smile, maybe even nod your head - but that individual is never to be respected again. Polite is one thing- respect or taking seriously is another.

In real life - nothing to do with DU or even this thread - just in real life I tend to treat those people that I encounter as too wet to step on and too low to kick because they *think* they've gotten away with something but then I can always come to DU and ridicule them or snicker and giggle about it with my husband.

Just snicker and giggle - because you aren't crazy. That happened. We both know it happened. And from this distance it seems so obvious . . .
