    Ok...I feel compelled to add my two cents worth here....

    A lot of this comes down to history. History is history, and some of it is ugly without a doubt. But if we shelter people from it...aren't they doomed to repeat it? I've always agreed with the saying, you have to know where you came from to know where you're going. I'll share this information with my children, as I do all sides of history I possibly can. That way they are prepared for life, and they know what is acceptable to utter as well as what is not. I've never heard this phrase before I read this post. Now I can teach them what it is, its an ugly term, and not acceptable to use it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, and furthering not only mine, but my children's life education.

    We need to be careful to not assume the worst in people...some things are just a lesson in history, that we need to know about!

    As far as literature, I think it is more offensive to ban any of it, than it is to read and openly discuss it. We can't learn if we can't know.

    Very well said, Lisa. I also think that the ugly parts of history must be remembered so they are not repeated. Prejudiced people come in all sizes and colors, but wonderful and caring people also come in all sizes and colors. I don't think any of our members would deliberately hurt anyone. I have met sooooo many wonderful people on this board and I hope to meet many more. :-) :-) :-)

    :D :D :D I love our board....Because of what it stands for....Friendly people from all over the globe...pets too...everyone is welcome...
    I was shocked when I realize we have some problem in here....But do we really???? Its obvious that no one really wanted to hurt anyone and no one continue to feel "ofended".....
    :lol: I relate to this...with the history of when my kids were small:
    The younger, looks more like Polish boy, and the other more like a mexican boy....People used to refer to the younger one, calling him "Guerito" which mean something like "light color".....He used to get very upset crying that he doesn't want to be called like this.....While his brother was very sad, he wanted people to call him "Guerito" too......
    The most funny thing is that the younger was born actually in Mexico and is very mexican in most of the way.....
    Who cares.....We love both of them very much.....
    Have a wonderful day and......Please,
    Don't take things personaly....

    BeBe I UNDERSTAND about typing something and it being taken the wrong way.
    The quilts are beautiful
    I am SURE you were NOT trying to cause hate and dicontent.

    This shows we are able to discuss a "touchy" topic as adults and be able to learn from one another.

    I am really glad I found this site. I have been to too many others where this would have ended in people leaving the group with hurt feelings after alot of name calling and bitter words exchanged.
