The same applies here... I don't care what color people are... Label, label, label.....
Actually that was my point (too)
That it was mistaken (miss-taken = taken the wrong way)
That IMO you were not dismissive of that which you were being ACCUSED of dismissing.
yet Leslie, being so (TOO) closely involved of the topic under discussion, she became dismissive of the fact that her impassioned defense of those being DISCRIMINATED AGAINST that she Failed to See what was Right In Front of Her (and everyone else's) Eyes, that can't wrap-their-head-around what it's like to, (as Pres. Obama said) "...to be followed around a store... etc etc etc"
The difference being, there was no way to HIDE the fact that they were Black... ...they were "stuck with it" ...like it or not
As I said...
The discussion is way way way over-due...
When even people involved in their OWN Form of Prejudice are unable to recognize the EXTENT of what it's like to "Walk that mile in Each Other's shoes"
Only an outside observer could plainly see that Neither You NOR Leslie were guilty of that which you were being accused of by stating that there 'SHOULD BE no REASON to Use LABELS' but as Leslie was trying to point out.. "In Reality... it's still a Fact of Life Yet To Be Dealt With!"
and as i said (again) "...and the discussion is Way WAY Over Due"
