    You should listen to the full quote. He said you should never call someone the n-word and that doing so would be despicable. He was saying you can't say it as part of a conversation. I honestly can't think of what conversation that would be and in the end it's a failed complaint regardless.

    This is a really good book on the subject. Written by a black legal scholar with degrees from Harvard and Yale. Replaced the starred out part with the, ahem, word in question.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Thanks to corruption from the board and CEO, Medicaid medical/dental clinic shuts down suddenly, displacing 20,000 patients.

    I was a patient at said clinic. I need to find a new doctor starting Monday, and hope like hell I can get my refills and records transferred ASAP.

    India has taken one of the most visible steps backward of any country the last ten plus years.

    Though Iím sure 99% of that is because itís being covered now. I imagine it was probably much better than it was but still miles away from even having a shred of respectability. Itís so gross how they treat women there. (Probably all minorities and poor people.)

    India has always been like that. I have a (white, American) coworker who married an Indian woman, and according to him she's no longer on speaking terms with her father because she refused to let him traditionally arrange a marriage to a man within her caste or religious faith.

    It's a mix. We have a friend who is an Indian Muslim whose family is liberated from that nonsense. They gave her sister (also in America) sh-t because she married a Muslim guy for love when she could have had a Jewish neurosurgeon from Hopkins.

    However, her Mom is mystified why our friend is 40 and unmarried. Not angry, just perplexed. It's adorable -- never even enters her pretty little head.

    Good friend of mine that I met after moving here hasn't lived in India for 15 years. Still had an arranged marriage and the wedding last October was complete Bollywood.
