Corrected. And, with those corrections, yes right.

I'm sorry that you think everyone sees the world through "race as primary" glasses as you do and I'm also sorry that you see someone expressing how they see things as being tantamount to telling others how to see it. And yes I know you're far from alone in both those opinions. But your choice to hold them is your own thing to deal with.

That sorted, I of course accept that the outcome is important but I'd say that intent is just as, or even more, important.

Oh and you might want to read what the woman in the commercial has to say about it.

"These lifeforms feel such passionate hatreds over matters of custom, God concepts, even - strangely enough - economic systems." - Capt. J Piccard USS Enterprise

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
