That would be the South from the 1920s Fi

Kasey, yeah alright LOL - well, it was 4.00am when I wrote that message (sort of en route to the kitchen to get a glass of water, the laptop was just lying there so I gave it a bit of an airing )

I'm sorry, but I don't see how anyone could take the story as offensive unless they don't like curs...uh...cussing.  It wasn't a slight on Asian people, if there was any slight on a particular race it was us, the  Americans.  I thought it humorous and particularly well-described as a short story.  I still don't know if it's true or not.  Doesn't matter to me.  Americanese is quite difficult to handle for any race.

Michele,
If I may speak for Kyla?....I think she meant she was leaving the thread, not the website for good.  Reread what she wrote and maybe you'll see what I see in her statements. 

Kyla,
I'd like to know what you're boyfriend thinks though, cuz maybe I'm wrong but I didn't see any racial slurs on Asians or did I  miss something?


blessings,
ambrosia
Kyla

no one can speak for me. i decided not to show my boyfriend this. he grew up in a small town and had now friends growing up and had to deal with intense racism. he is a tough, super-bright person and can deal with racism, but i am not going to concern him with this. it is just a message board after all and there are more important things to worry about.
so, i'm not sure what i'm going to do. and there don't necessarily have to be obvious "slurs" for something to be racist. racism is so institutionalized, and still so accepted it often goes unseen in it's more insidious forms.
