I would agree with you some there.
I am fully aware it's not racial in concept, but the tone of it does tend to offend some.
well I must have written this on my P.C. and not on my Mac.
but at the same time I don't expect the term to disappear off the board.
( but I won't use it )
: I know this subject came up before on this MB, but with a racial comment made recently, i would like to pusue it again.
: Even though I am not a Japanese, but I am an Asian, and I am deeply disturbued by comments such as "rice boys" and "rice-burning crap". Please stop those racial stereo typings. Compare to others, this MB has one of the most professional contents and participants. It's sad to see someone would actually post racial stereo typing comments on this MB read by not only Americans, but people around the world. All participants should respect each other's race and cultures and understand their divesities.
: If you wish to critize a car maker, please do so directly at the manufacturer, i.e., Honda Crap, Toyota Crap, BMW Crap, Porsche Crap, Chevy Crap, or Ford Crap. Comments such as "rice boys", "German Nazies", "American pigs", "stingy Jewish" will only draw hatrets between people and they have no place on this MB. I respect other people's race and comments, and in return, I wish others to do the same. Hope that's not too much to ask.
: I thank you all for your attention to this matter.
: Richard :-)
