Subject: I apolgize
I take it my recent joke " I'm confused"
has ruffled a few feathers. I never intended it to be a "bad" racial joke.
I never personally took it as that
offensive, and I never meant for it to be
taken that offensively. If I offended
anyone, I apologize. A couple of my
African American friends found it funny,
so I thought it to be "OK" to send.

I'm sure it didn't ruffle anyone's feathers beyond the point of being
slightly chagrined by it's glaring insipidity.

The first rule of RGP is to never apologize. That shows weakness. Many
of the posters extend this rule to never admit they are wrong.

I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong someday so
that I can admit it and demonstrate that.

IIRC, I went out of my way to subtly inform you that were a milquetoast to
the highest degree.

I am sure (if he ever did offer this little nugget for me) it went
something like this:

'Hey dumbass don't apologize you sound like a pussy'

or something similar.
