Thank you for commenting on my site. I probably should have contacted you first before linking to you, b/c I myself was not sure that you meant what you said in any way other than how you stated it. That's why I posed it as a question. I believe these types of dialogues should be had and I'm glad we can discuss it in this open forum known as the blogosphere.

When it comes to race, a lot of people in the dominant culture don't realize that when statements such as yours are made, that black people (often but not always) take the defensive and feel there is some deeper meaning implied, given the fact that racism is still such an ugly issue in our American society.

I'm glad you got to say your part, and I hope that in no way my posting part of your comment lead to any unwelcomed anger aimed at you.

Thank you

Lynne d Johnson
