Jim Chester: That is an insult. God's blessing is to be "anything but black?"
Rowe: It certainly wasn't my intention to offend you or anyone else reading. However, considering the overwhelming psychological stress, useless vitimization, and economic marginalization that blacks endure, I wouldn't characterize our experience as a walk through the breeze, much less a blessing. This is how I feel about it. I consider it extreme however to challenge my qualification as a teacher because of this perspective. Most importantly, I am interested in knowing why MBM (the topic starter) has yet to respond to issues discussed in his own topic.
