Um, yeah you did. In all caps as a matter of fact.
Artgoddess,
I do not have the energy to get into a pissing match with you about this.

I have my opinions, you have yours... good enough for me.

Also, I am completely confused how not being okay with the show's plan this season is racist.
Ok, so I am not yet done with this thread...

I am not for one and against another. I never said that I was 'for' segregation.. just that it is not a problem with me. I do not live my life segregated from others. I live in South Florida for crying out loud.

Perhaps you all have taken my words of "not having a problem with segregation' to mean that I agree with it and that I believe it should be... that is not what I ment, I do not AGREE with it, but I do not have "problems in my life with it"


Now I am done.

That's segregation (or the desire for) directly related to racism.

No, life isn't PC, but it should would be nice if more people were sensitive, compassionate, open-minded and respectful.
