I didn't want to mess with Texas anyhow
Yeah, wearing blackface would fit nicely with that attitude.

I'm truly sorry for how you read that, I certainly didn't mean that as derogatory toward other races. When I posted that I was discussing the issue of admission/scholarships with a friend who is on full scholarship for being Hispanic, which she jokes about because she has one Mexican grandparent, does not speak Spanish and has never been to Mexico. All that was meant was that it's frustrating that schools assume that people who are ethnic minorities have had to overcome so much more that the academic bar should be set lower to just increase diversity. I have plenty of friends who are minorities ethnically but grew up in Pasadena with two parents who have graduate degrees. I absolutely did not mean it to be read the way it was, although of course I see why it was, so I'm very sorry for those who found it insulting.[/quote]
So, given this explanation, how exactly did you want your comment to be read?[/quote]
Oh heck, I don't know, but it wasn't meant to insult others. Just frustration with the nature of the process. It was late, other than I was just tired and attempting to convey irritation with the process itself, I'm sorry. There's not much other than a rightfully embarrassed apology that I can give.
