    Then just walk away. It saves a lot of aggravation and you can debate things that are less personal and more intellectual.

    I'll never know what it's like to be Black any more than either of us will know what it's like to be Chinese, an Inuit or a woman. We can only guess and treat others with the respect we expect for ourselves along our way. There's room enough for everyone, and life is difficult enough without having unnecessary BS to get us down. All cliches, I know, but sometimes they do need repeating.

    I can't walk away because I like it, lol. I don't like the way I become, but I like the argument. I am OK with that though as it is who I am. I have to be comfortable in my own skin, and that's what really counts. I am sure you know that though.

    You have a good one man.
